Cristiano Ronaldo refuses to discuss Portugal future after World Cup exit

Ronaldo

Edinson Cavani, who failed to finish the match after suffering a late injury, scored a superb goal in each half, and although Pepe scored in-between, it was not enough to halt the Uruguayans, who have now won all four of their matches so far in Russian Federation.

"Now is not the time to talk about the future of players and coaches", Ronaldo said.

Uruguay, world champions in 1930 and 1950, will play France, who beat Argentina 4-3 earlier in the day, in Nizhny Novgorod on July 6.

However, the pair have again failed to add an elusive World Cup to their trophy-laden cabinets, after Messi's Argentina were defeated 4-3 by France in the last 16 in Russian Federation on Saturday, followed shortly after by Ronaldo's Portugal, who suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Uruguay.

'Dark day for German football' after World Cup elimination
After the draw for the 2018 World Cup was announced, no one would have foreseen that South Korea would oust Germany . Mexico fans celebrated in the stands when hearing that South Korea had scored against Germany .

Messi, a phenomenon when he was only 18, was instrumental in Argentina winning the 2005 World Youth Championship, as the U-20 World Cup was then called.

Ronaldo will be almost 38 by the time the next World Cup comes around in Qatar in 2022. Portugal seemed like one of the teams that could have won the entire 2018 World Cup, but they're not going to watch the rest of the tournament from home.

"It's time to say goodbye and for the younger players to step in", said Javier Mascherano, who at 34 said he was retiring from the national team. The Barcelona star is heating up, scoring his first goal of the 2018 World Cup against Nigeria in his squad's last match.

His tally is one behind the tournament's current leading scorer Harry Kane, with Ronaldo also missing a penalty in the 1-1 draw with Iran.

Europe migrants: Italy warns passport-free travel at risk
Anti-migrant parties - and governments in Hungary and Italy - have been fomenting public fears of foreigners. Like everything to do with migrants in Europe lately, even this meeting is proving controversial.

"I think there is often a mistaken assumption that possession leads to scoring opportunities", Uruguay's long-serving coach Oscar Tabarez told reporters.

Leading the charge is the 19-year-old Mbappe, who achieved a feat no player had accomplished in 60 years, becoming the first teenager to score twice in a World Cup match since a 17-year-old Pele in 1958. "He is their leader, their captain".

"Certainly, yes, Cristiano still has a lot to give to football".

"We know that they were tight in the midfield, so we had some players playing wide to try to unblock the Uruguay defence".

But we want to qualify, we're not here to watch him play", explained the coach. "I think we have a manager who is very tough". He has now scored Nigeria's last four goals at the World Cup.
