Cavani limps off after brilliant brace

World Cup diary: Spain prepare for last-16 test

Griezmann may not be connected to Uruguay through his immediate family, but all throughout his footballing career, he's had support from a number of Uruguayan coaches and players. Cavani sent a cross into the box where Suarez, however, could hardly get a decent shot.

After three lackluster games in group play, France was electric in its most recent match, particularly in the second half when it cut up Argentina's plodding defense.

The two goals scored by Edinson Cavani knocked out Portugal. "We have many young players who desire to achieve team success", he said.

Portugal have lost each of their last nine World Cup games in which they've conceded the first goal.

On Saturday, they faced a team who did the same things more effectively as they went down to only their second defeat in 28 competitive matches under the grizzled Santos. "We have to take it a day at a time and see how he feels".

"He's always the best player in the world", he said. If they still would be in their national teams, they would be the top oldest players in the world cup history, a record now being held by Egypt's goalkeeper Essam El Hadary.

However, Ronaldo, who will be 37 by the time of the next World Cup, would not be drawn on whether he planned to extend his global career.

The only downside for Oscar Tabarez's side was the sight of Cavani limping off late on, raising a question mark over his fitness for next week's last eight showdown with the French in Nizhny Novgorod.

The exams planned this Sunday have indeed been postponed by 24 hours and the Paris striker still does not know the exact nature of his injury. Obviously I'm very happy for (Cavani's) goals and that they helped us win.

'But in five days we have a match and we don't have a lot of time for recovery here.

When Portugal's football legend Luis Figo captained his national team to the semi-final of the 2006 World Cup, Ronaldo scored his first World Cup goal.

"There is a tournament in September and we hope Cristiano will be with us to help the players grow".
