Ronaldo, Portugal unable to continue great run at World Cup

Ronaldo, Portugal unable to continue great run at World Cup

The social media trolls also targeted Argentina striker Lionel Messi's wife Antonella Roccuzzo after the team lost 0-3 to Croatia in the group stage.

David Silva's Spain will look to make it through to the quarter-finals of the World Cup when they take on Russian Federation this afternoon.

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

To be fair, Portugal had four impressive performances in Russian Federation, including the one against Uruguay at the Fisht Stadium.

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 time to talk about the future when it comes to the players and coach", Ronaldo added.

The South Americans have conceded just one goal - the joint lowest in the tournament with Brazil - in four straight wins on their way to the showdown in Nizhny Novgorod.


While Cavani's fitness doubt is a concern for Uruguay, France defender Adil Rami said: "We need to stop thinking that Cavani will play against us".

Portugal, after their impressive performances in four matches, will go home, and Real Madrid forward Ronaldo's fourth World Cup journey finished earlier than expected.

Goalless series Ronaldo in the knockout stage of the world Championships reached 514 minutes. If they still would be in their national teams, they would be the top oldest players in the world cup history, a record now being held by Egypt's goalkeeper Essam El Hadary. "I'm sure that the national team will remain as one of the best in the world".

"The distinctive feature was the dedication that all the players showed and displayed on the pitch", Tabarez said. "In the second we were better, but we didn't make it", he explained.

Perhaps even enough to give France fits in the quarterfinals. They have two exceptional strikers, Griezmann and Mbappe - they're very fast indeed. "A hard match is expecting us".

"We are here to play all seven matches, right up until the final, and we will see what happens", he said.
