Cristiano Ronaldo is the equal of two strikers

Iran goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvan makes the most talked about save of the World Cup so far

Against Cavani, he has played four matches in the Champions League, scoring three goals, compared to one from the Uruguayan.

But the 3rd match against Russian Federation saw why the Uruguayans have the best forward line-up in the World as Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani fired one each in between a Denis Cheryshev own goal to register a convincing 3-0 victory against the host nation as they qualified as group toppers from group A. It has been like that for the whole of 2018. "You don't prepare a match just looking at one player".

La Celeste's strength is based on the twin pillars of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani up front and Atletico Madrid center-back pairing Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez, who must face up to a familiar foe.

What time does the FIFA World Cup 2018 Uruguay vs Portugal Round of 16 match begin?

Unfortunately, the structure of the World Cup 2018 brackets and the venues allocated mean that, in the event Portugal advances to the Last 4, they would be playing against either Brazil, Mexico, Belgium or Japan in Saint Petersburg.

"He has a great potential obviously and in planning the match, especially focusing on the opponent and considering the level that every player has. what Ronaldo has on top of the qualities is that he's the leader of that team". Meanwhile, three of Portugal's last four goals have come from outside the box. However, he did score a hat-trick against Spain in his previous game at Sochi's Fisht Stadium. Excelling in their man-management skills, they surely have the strategic know-how and they have already led their sides to continental glory; and simply an iota of sparked brilliance could decide the game today.

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

- Luis Suarez has scored seven World Cup goals for Uruguay, second only to Oscar Miguez (eight) - Suarez scored a brace against South Korea in his only previous appearance in the round of 16 back in 2010.
