Free kick to Uruguay after Suarez is taken down on the break. But it is so much more than that. Clearly, the momentum will be with the South American team and they will be a force to reckon with in the upcoming tie.

FIFA World Cup 2018 Uruguay v/s Portugal football match in India will be broadcast on Sony Network.

If he plays, Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo (37) will equal Bastian Schweinsteiger (38) as the player with the most appearances at World Cups + European Championships.

He has already spoken of his desire to play on until he is 40, meaning he could still play in three more major global tournaments.

In the last two years, he has scored two hat-tricks for Real against Godin's Atletico, having also emerged victorious in two Madrid derby Champions League finals.

In total, Messi went 756 minutes in the business end of the World Cup without scoring and Ronaldo 514 minutes.

With four goals from his first three games, the Real Madrid star has been living up to his pre-tournament hype.

Today, Gimenez is set to rejoin Godin in central defence after missing the 3-0 victory over Russian Federation due to injury.

2' - Early attack from Portugal. Uruguay beat Russian Federation 3-0 while Portugal were held 1-1 by Iran, with a last-minute penalty.

A Reuters/Ipsos national opinion poll released on Tuesday showed fewer than one in three American adults supporting the policy. It allows the Department of Homeland Security to detain families together "under present resource constraints".

This is a side with excellent, Italian-based midfielders in Rodrigo Bentancur, Lucas Torreira and Matias Vecino.

Uruguay got off to a flying start, with Edinson Cavani scoring after just seven minutes, putting pressure on Ronaldo's side nearly immediately. Suarez tried a similar effort to the free-kick he scored against Russian Federation - and nearly pulled it off again.

Ronaldo could not add to the four goals he scored in the group stages.

Portugal manager, Fernando Santos is expected to keep forward, Ricardo Quaresma in the side at the expense of Bernardo Silva, meaning his side will be unchanged from the 1-1 draw with Iran.

"This is a World Cup, and of course we're all defending and we're all working for our national teams, and that's the essential aspect". It has been like that for the whole of 2018.

Minutes later, Cavani restored the lead for Oscar Tabarez's charges and completed his brace in the process with an impressive curling strike that left Rui PatrĂ­cio with no chance. "That means he has a very strong relationship with his players". We aren't going to lose any sleep over him.

38 - Another try for Portugal on the header from Goncalo Guedes but it's saved by Uruguayan goalie Fernando Muslera.

Free-kick to Uruguay as Nahitan Nandez goes down after a challenge. Edinson Cavani passes it across the field to Luis Suarez who crosses right back to Cavani for the header in the top right. He has reached the knockout stages on each previous occasion: Euro 2012 quarter-finals & World Cup 2014 round of 16 with Greece; Euro 2016 winners and at least World Cup 2018 round of 16 with Portugal.
