Tabarez saluted man-of-the-match Cavani but said he was not sure whether the Paris St Germain striker, who limped off in the 74th minute, would be ready for next Friday's quarter-final against France. Doctors inform that Cavani has already started rehabilitation and perform some exercise.

Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo's partner Georgina Rodriguez has been targeted by trolls after Portugal was ousted from the FIFA World Cup after losing to Uruguay in pre-quarterfinals. His goal against Morocco at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium also saw him become Europe's all-time top worldwide scorer on 85 goals, one ahead of Hungarian legend Ferenc Puskas. "You're not lucky one, unfortunately", a user wrote.

Uruguay has given up only one goal in four World Cup matches, and France has scored seven - most in the 4-3 victory over Argentina in the round of 16.

The two share similar traits as players: they are fiercely competitive, possess a work-rate as monstrous as their goal-scoring records and are capable of producing moments of beauty with the ball. As Portugal captain, I know how we've worked and we must be proud of the team.

Meanwhile, it was reported that while Cavani did not take part in the day's outdoor training session with his team-mates, Suarez had appeared to feel some discomfort in his right leg during it, but did then resume training.

Angara told CNN Sports Desk that with "King" James joining the Lakers , he expects the resurrection of the NBA's biggest rivalry. The San Antonio Spurs star has been tipped to move this summer after his relationship broke down with the franchise.

He said: 'Uruguay is a South-American team very hard to play. But in five days we have a match and we don't have a lot of time for recovery here. "But we have a very strong team in terms of our mindset".

And against Uruguay, they managed 61 percent ball possession, played more than double the number of passes of their opponent, and with a much better pass accuracy.

"I spoke as a friend - obviously that stays between us".

Coach Oscar Tabarez is anxious ahead Friday's showdown with France with Suarez confident that Uruguay can cope without Cavani if the striker does not recover from the injury. Figo saw Ronaldo who had played in the national squad for 12 years to lead the team crown in Europe.
