Cavani exits with calf injury: 'I hope it is nothing'

Portugal hasn't reached the World Cup quarterfinals since 2006, when a young Ronaldo led the team to the semifinals. He's limping off the field now and will be subbed out.

52 - Uruguay's defense is rock solid.

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. Uruguay, meanwhile, had not conceded a goal in 2018 - an impressive run of six games, three of them at Russian Federation 2018. Cavani restores Uruguay's lead with a attractive strike.

22 - Luis Suarez gets a free kick outside the box and almost gets it to go but Portuguese goalkeeper Rui Patricio makes a nice save.

La Celeste's Cavani put them into the lead, getting on the end of a powerful cross from his strike partner Luis Suarez on seven minutes.

6th minute - Ronaldo gives it a rip from outside the box but can't convert it.

There are many possible factors for Europe's grip on the World Cup, but South America's contribution to the world game is at least on a par with Europe, with so many of its players starring for European clubs.

Supreme Court Refuses Anti-Gay Florist’s Case - For Now
The decision upheld the ruling of the Benton County Superior Court, which found Stutzman violated the law and fined her $1,000. The Supreme Court found that the evidence was "plainly insufficient" to prove that the 2013 Legislature acted in "bad faith".

Edinson Cavani sent Uruguay into a World Cup quarter-final against France with two goals of the highest order eliminating Portugal. They had just 30% possession after halftime.

He scored a minute after Ronaldo tested Fernando Muslera with a 20-yard long-ranger in the sixth minute. Twelve of those have been assisted by Luis Suarez.

Edinson Cavani of Uruguay scores the opening goal during the Fifa World Cup 2018 round of 16 soccer match between Uruguay and Portugal in Sochi, Russia, on Saturday.

With or without Cavani, though, Uruguay will make it tough for France and should not be written off.

Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez was complimentary of Ronaldo and the rest of the Portugal squad, noting several times Uruguay will be facing the reigning champions of Europe.

Portugal's flank players created some set-piece sutuations but they couldn't yield the desired equaliser as Uruguay saw off the last anxious moments by doing putting in a heavy defending shift.

His tally is one behind the tournament's current leading scorer Harry Kane, with Ronaldo also missing a penalty in the 1-1 draw with Iran.
