Twitter reacts as Uruguay edge past Portugal

"A match-up between Spanish sides Barcelona and Real Madrid, also known El Clasico, is one of the biggest rivalries in sport", Suarez said. In planning the match, focusing on our opponent and considering the level that every player has, what Ronaldo has on top of all of these qualities is that he is the leader of that team.

WORLD CUP FACT: In the last four FIFA World Cups, the teams that reached the semi-final stage all won their final group match. Subs: Fernandes 5, Quaresma 6, A Silva 5.

Ronaldo did take defenders away from Pepe, allowing the defender to head in a 55th-minute equaliser, but this was a night when nobody else was able to come to the party and ease the creative burden on the Real Madrid superstar.

Bernardo Silva drove in a low cross that deflected over as Portugal began to run out of time, and then Nandez was replaced by Carlos Sanchez for Uruguay.

Against Cavani, he has played four matches in the Champions League, scoring three goals, compared to one from the Uruguayan.

71 - Edinson Cavani down hurt. Uruguay looking much more comfortable than the Portuguese.

Russian referee Valentin Ivanov issued a record four red cards and 16 yellows, setting a record for cards shown at a World Cup, with Portugal's Deco and Costinha both sent off, along with Khalid Boulahrouz and Giovanni van Bronckhorst for the Dutch.

Uruguay's previous five goals at Russian Federation 2018 all came from set-pieces but they opened the scoring in the seventh minute with a goal of the highest quality. Uruguay still leads, 1-0.

Cavani switched play from right to left with a sweeping pass out to Suarez, who teased his man before delivering a wonderful cross his strike partner crashed home at the back post. England's Harry Kane has already scored five.

2' - Early attack from Portugal. Diego Laxalt, 14. Lucas Torreira, 8.

In the 74th minute, with his Portugal team trailing Uruguay 2-1, Cristiano Ronaldo watched as Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani fell down and clutched his left leg. However, it's important for them that the confidence doesn't morph into cockiness, as they'll be protecting the net against Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the best strikers alive today.
