Ronaldo, Suarez put World Cup dreams on line as Portugal face Uruguay

Perhaps it is unfair on both teams to predict a kicking match, but let us just consider the personalities involved.

The summer in Russian Federation has already upstaged quite a few recent editions of the FIFA World Cup with its vivid moments and the knockout stages kick off with two captivating contests in France vs Argentina and Uruguay vs Portugal. "You don't prepare a match just looking at one player".

Defensive midfielder William Carvalho is a doubt after he missed a training session on Thursday. Take the under (with apologies if you lose because one team scores the winning goal in extra time).

Fernando Santos is lacking another defensive-midfield force akin to Carvalho in his squad, although Joao Moutinho could return alongside Adrien Silva in the engine room after starting on the bench against Russian Federation.

Ronaldo lifted Portugal to a 3-3 draw against Spain in their opening game, capping a hat-trick with a sensational free-kick.

This is Fernando Santos' fourth major tournament in a row as manager.

A Real Madrid versus Barcelona subplot will be a part of the narrative as Portugal and Uruguay do battle in the Fisht Stadium with a place in the World Cup quarter finals at stake.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicked off on June 14 and will continue until July 15, with the matches being played in 11 cities across Russian Federation.

The entire event, from start to finish, will last around four hours. "That [the middle] gets a longer-duration eclipse", he said. The eclipse will be visible from eastern South America as it is ending, and from Australia as it is beginning.

Essentially a one-man team spearheaded by Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal have dazzled and baffled this summer, their fortunes revolving around the Real Madrid talisman.
