Portugal Are Out The World Cup After 2-1 Loss To Uruguay

After huffing and puffing his way through the opening two group matches, Uruguay's talisman Edinson Cavani has finally arrived at the party, and in some style.

The spirit with which they play, sticking into tackles, putting their bodies on the line to get to the ball and working hard for their teammates sets them apart from nearly all other teams in the draw, and gives them an added edge besides just the football playing.

Bernardo Silva had Portugal's best opportunity to send the tie to extra-time but snatched at his effort, with 70 minutes on the clock, and it flew over the bar.

Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez will start in central defence and they will count on all their La Liga experience at Atletico Madrid to stop arch-rival Ronaldo in his tracks.
