Cristiano Ronaldo after Messi leaves the world Cup.
The Portuguese started well in the first half, played the ball, you could even say dominated, but it was not important in the seventh minute. Cavani, being at the edge of the field, moved the ball to the opposite flank to Suarez ran into the penalty area where Luis Suarez filed, and Cavani has closed.
After conceding a goal, Portugal continued to attack, but it allowed Uruguay to create danger in counter attacks. In fact, although Portugal had the ball but created nothing in the first half. Uruguay has offered his opponent a total pressure, closing all the open spaces and not to give space to anyone from the opponent, and Ronaldo in front of instantly appeared two or three Uruguayan.
The second half began as the first ended – with the attacks of Portugal, which were divided on the defense of Uruguay. Therefore, based on the game, goal Portugal is a bit illogical. After a corner Raphael Guerreiro made a great cross, and Pepe, jumping above everyone in the penalty area, head hammer the ball in protivohod goalkeeper.
In the first half, seven minutes the score was not opened. Those seven minutes in the second half, the score was equal. Uruguay ran to the counter 4 to 3. In the end, Bentancourt gave a pass-a candy on Cavani, who put the case perfectly and shot accurately into the right corner.
The remaining time has passed in attacks of Portugal. There were moments when Uruguay, the whole team defended, but most of the European team blows were either blocked or went over the crossbar, or best position was chosen by Muslera. Uruguay failed to close down Ronaldo, and without him the Portuguese have no individual time to create and terminate failed.
Uruguay reached the quarter-finals, where will play with France, and Ronaldo with Portugal goes home followed by Argentina with Messi.
A negative for Uruguay – Cavani injury where he left the field early. We will wait for news from the mill teams, in order to understand whether he will be able to play in the quarterfinals.
