Cavani headed home before the break and, soon after Pepe had headed a second-half equaliser, scored the victor with a superb curling shot.

71 - Edinson Cavani down hurt.

Instead, Tabarez knows that the best way to nullify Ronaldo and heighten Uruguay's chances of reaching a World Cup semi-final, his side "will have to work collectively in order to try to limit the effect that he can have".

Uruguay will be sweating on Cavani's fitness for the next round after he left the match midway through the second half with an injury, though. It was a towering header from an unmarked Pepe - his sixth for his country.

22' - SAVE! Up steps Suarez who drills the free-kick low and hard, it's creeping into the bottom corner but Patricio, at full-stretch, dives across to push the ball away from his goal. Star player Luis Suarez scored twice as Uruguay defeated Egypt, Saudi Arabia and hosts Russian Federation to set up a Round of 16 tie with reigning European champions, Portugal.

With the Uruguayan midfield hardly allowing areas in front of the box, Portugal resorted to crosses and crossfield balls.

Paul George to sign with Thunder
It's shaping up to be a wild week in the National Basketball Association and players and teams are preparing accordingly. George opted out of his contract with OKC and became an unrestricted free agent on Thursday, per USA TODAY Sports .

As play switched to the other end, Fonte brought down Suarez for a unsafe 25-yard free kick and the forward's low shot was well saved by Rui Patricio.

Two goals from Edinson Cavani put the South American side into the last eight after Pepe had earlier pulled things level for the Portuguese. With the "Fubo Premier" bundle, you will get access to all four of the World Cup soccer TV channels in most markets. They had just 30% possession after halftime. "Uruguay had never scored like that". Twelve of those have been assisted by Luis Suarez. Crucially, though, Cavani and Uruguay had the ideal response.

Only one can advance, and Portugal needs to play better than it did in tying Spain and Iran.

"This is a World Cup and of course we're all defending and we're all working for our national teams, and that's the essential aspect".

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo cut a frustrated figure during the entire match and could not add to his four goals in the first two matches, failing to improve his record of failing to score in all six World Cup knockout matches he has played.

The 33-year-old did however say that the European champions could look to the future with confidence.
