Suarez - One man doesn’t make a team

However, Uruguay have a water-tight defence superbly marshalled by the experienced Diego Godin which kept three clean sheets in the group stages before Saturday's 2-1 win over European champions Portugal.

Earlier, Portugal coach Fernando Santos said he hoped Ronaldo would remain part of the worldwide set-up.

Comments on Georgina's Instagram posts saw comments not just from Uruguay fans, but also from angry Iranian fans, who posted comments with the country's flag, to vent ire after Iran lost to Portugal in the group stage.

"Your support was and always will be fundamental to us", Ronaldo wrote on Instagram alongside the Portuguese flag.

Unsurprisingly Portugal coach Fernando Santos is hopeful that Ronaldo, who has scored 85 worldwide goals in 154 appearances, will choose to continue to represent his Country.

The goal featured superb linkplay between the two forwards, a combination that would be Uruguay's strongest weapon against an attack-minded team like France.

"'It's not the right time to talk about my future, or about the coach or any of the players", he said at Sochi's Fisht Stadium.

Russian players were on their knees in exhaustion after defending for 120 minutes in Moscow with just 26 percent possession and they must now summon another huge physical effort, with Croatia expected to dominate the ball once more.

Portugal hasn't reached the World Cup quarterfinals since 2006, when a young Ronaldo led the team to the semifinals.

"We're talking about Edinson Cavani, one of the world's best strikers and he's been on form during this tournament, so I think it's not bad for us that he's injured". "They've shown throughout the World Cup how good their game is, their speed, how compact they are, it's unbelievable".

Ronaldo played a pivotal role in France during Portugal's triumphant campaign two years ago, and during the tournament in Russian Federation he became Europe's top worldwide goal-scorer and only second in the world to Iran's Ali Daei.

Nicolas Otamendi played the full 90 minutes and Sergio Aguero came off the bench in the second half as Argentina looked to get back into the game.

"Things were not what we wanted [on the pitch], but at the security level, it was very good". The team's youngest players were Guedes and defender Ruben Dias, both at 21.

They will play against France in Nizhny Novgorod on July 6. Obviously I'm very happy for (Cavani's) goals and that they helped us win. But in five days we have a match and we don't have a lot of time for recovery here.
