Cavani on the double as Uruguay sink Ronaldo's Portugal

Uruguay's Diego Godin holds the key to locking out Cristiano Ronaldo

Cavani scored twice and Ronaldo none Saturday to give Uruguay a 2-1 victory over Portugal.

Portugal have not lost a competitive match with Ronaldo in the side since the 2014 World Cup, although they were beaten on penalties by Chile at last year's Confederations Cup.

As play switched to the other end, Fonte brought down Suarez for a unsafe 25-yard free kick and the forward's low shot was well saved by Rui Patricio.

Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez admits there is concern in the camp but will wait for medical results before making any further statement.

For the first time in the game Uruguay fell asleep at the back just as Raphael Guerreiro collected a short corner and delivered into the box, leaving Pepe to break free of his marker and power a header beyond Fernando Muslera.

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

That's not the only way the accounts of Ettel and Rodgers' family diverge. "The world's gonna see you, boo", the cousin said. She calling the police on an eight-year-old", the cousin narrated, before turning to Ettel: "You can hide all you want.

It means Ronaldo followed Lionel Messi out of the World Cup on the same day.

This will be a busy evening for the referee, not least with Uruguay's Atletico Madrid centre-halves Diego Godin and Jose Jimenez up against Portugal's Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

Cristiano Ronaldo attempted six shots for Portugal tonight (one on target) - one more than the entire Uruguay team managed over the 90 minutes.

Pepe gave Portugal some hope when he found the equaliser in the 55th minute.

Either side of Suarez's chance, it was all Portugal - from possession, to meaningful possession and scoring chances - and finally, after trailing for almost 50 minutes, they were level after 55 minutes, thanks to Pepe's unmarked header from Raphael Guerreiro's corner kick.

The quarter-final match between Uruguay and Portugal will take place in Sochi on Sunday (4am AEST).

Brazil cruise into last 16 by beating Serbia
Four years ago, Paulinho was part of the Brazil team that was humiliated at home in a 7-1 drubbing by Germany in the semifinals. The goal burst Serbia's momentum and the only question in the closing stages was whether Neymar would get on the scoresheet.

The goals raised Cavani's total to three in the 2018 World Cup.

Since the format of the World Cup changed in 1986 to include a round of 16, Uruguay have been eliminated on three of the four occasions they have reached that stage, losing in 1986, 1990 and 2014, but progressing in 2010 against South Korea.

Ronaldo was involved somewhat in Portugal's goal, even if he didn't come close to getting a touch on the cross.

At 33, Ronaldo is still the most important player in Fernando Santos's team, but it really is a case that if you stop Ronaldo, you beat Portugal.

The knockout stage in FIFA World Cup 2018 has begun and Uruguay is set to face Portugal today. We want to achieve this at the World Cup.

The win may have come at a price, though, as Cavani limped off late on.
