Cavani optimistic over injury after firing Uruguay into quarter-finals

Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo

Late on, Cavani was forced off with an injury which is sure to worry boss Oscar Tabarez.

He became the second teenager to score multiple goals in a knockout match at the World Cup.

'This team will continue to be one of the best in the world, with quality players, a young group, united.

Barcelona forward Messi, 31, has also never scored in the World Cup knockout stages and is reportedly considering his own global future. Messi's Argentina lost to France in the other game of the day.

Portugal manager Fernando makes three changes to the side held by Iran in their final group game, with goalscorer Ricardo Quaresma dropped alongside Cedric Soares and Andre Silva.

There was no goal from Ronaldo this time.

"Now it's not the time to talk about the future", Ronaldo said after Portugal's 2-1 loss to Uruguay at the World Cup. And after Portugal equalized on Pepe's header in the 55th minute, it was Cavani again finishing a flawless Uruguay counter in the 62nd with a shot from just inside the penalty area that caught Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio slightly out of position and curled inside the far post.

Now, Uruguay will take on France on Friday at 3pm.

Responding to the initial question, Santos said: "I have to repeat, I always understand the question".

Portugal's 63-year-old coach Santos said his team's talisman should continue. "The team didn't win because Uruguay scored twice".

Rodrigo Bentancur found Cavani on the right touchline and he swept a magnificent crossfield pass to Suarez. Against Portugal, they looked well balanced and while they did concede, it was the first goal against them in 597 minutes of football, a run stretching back to August past year.

"We have a very strong team in terms of mindset", Tabarez said.

Unfortunately for Portugal, none of the supporting cast stepped up in a match in which the team's captain, marquee player, and talisman registered just a single shot on target.
