Cristiano Ronaldo & Portugal Get Eliminated From The World Cup & Fans Are Shocked

Portugal and Argentina crash out of the FIFA World Cup 2018; Uruguay beats Portugal 2-1 while France beats Argentina 4-3 in a thrilling match to reach the World Cup quarter-finals; Superstars Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi bow out of the soccer marquee event unexpectedly. "He is very happy for our qualification and for his and the team's performance the other day".

Les Bleus claimed top spot on the Group C table with a 2-1-0 win-draw-loss record, and have held opponents to just four total goals during the 5-2-0 run they take into Saturday's France versus Argentina betting matchup at Kazan Arena.

In their hometown of Salto, they are looked up to by locals who want to emulate them and become the next big thing in Uruguayan football.

Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani missed Monday's training and remains a doubt for this week's World Cup quarterfinal against France, though a muscle tear has been ruled out.

"This growth is natural and we have a team with many young players."

Portugal had no Plan B to fall back on to answer Cavani's masterful strikes on either side of Pepe's headed goal in the 55th minute.

Uruguay regained the lead seven minutes later when Rodrigo Bentancur found Cavani and he curled a brilliant first-time shot past Rui Patricio from the edge of the penalty area.

"But I do feel that the second half was very good from us in terms of desire and our determination to score".

"However, I can say that I am proud of our efforts at the tournament in Russian Federation, let the evening and very hard for us", he added, reports "Sport-Express".

Cristiano Ronaldo has thanked Portugal fans for their support at the World Cup, but is yet to confirm whether he will play on for his country.

Argentina were always second best, and in any event were lucky to still be in the tournament after a loss, a draw and a late victor in the group stage.
