Fifa World Cup - Russia 2018

HT Uruguay 1 – 0 Portugal #WorldCup

HALFTIME: Uruguay 1-0 Portugal Cavani chases after a long hoof down the left, but can only shank a weak volley well wide. And that’s that for the first half. It’s not been a classic, but Uruguay’s goal was a thing of real beauty, some spectacular long-distance interplay between Suarez and Cavani.


Portugal have 45 minutes to crack the Uruguay code; the sky blues haven’t been breached in six-and-a-half matches. It promises to be a thrilling second half. Go nowhere!

The winner of this match will play a quarter-final against France, who saw off Argentina earlier in a seven-goal spectacular. Our man Nick Ames was at the Kazan Arena, on hand to riff, be-bop and scat on Lionel Messi’s pain.

Uruguay have defended as well as they’ve throughout 2018 and go into the break with the lead courtesy of Cavani’s superb header in the seventh minute. He leaped at the far post to meet Luis Suarez’s perfect cross.

This was the 12th Uruguay goal that Luis Suarez has assisted for Edinson Cavani. Chances have been few and far for the Portuguese. CR7 has largely been keep quiet and the striker Guedes has barely had a kick.

Uruguay are yet to concede a goal in this world cup and yet to lose a game in 2018.
