Edinson Cavani

Suarez rued the injury absence of strike partner Edinson Cavani as "essential" to the result , although Uruguay's hopes of advancing were not aided by Fernando Muslera's poor error for Griezmann's goal . His exceptional hat-trick against Bolivia ensured that Argentina would make it through to the finals of the World Cup but the side flattered to deceive during their stay in Russian Federation.

The Frenchman was the subject of widespread media speculation surrounding a possible transfer to Barcelona to join up with Suarez, but eventually announced that he would be remaining at Atletico Madrid.

"We are a team where everyone gives everything in the matches and in preparation". As the match wore on there seemed less chance of them seriously threatening France's goal, despite increasing their attacking numbers.

"Everybody knows he's (Mbappe) a really good player, but I think we have a really good defence to control him", said the Barcelona striker. "Today we played against opponents that were stronger than we were".

"We want to stop them playing, make their strikers uncomfortable, that's our weapon. The attitude is there but we have margin for improvement", he added.

This combination of pictures created on July 03, 2018 shows France's forward Kylian Mbappe (L) in Kazan on June 30, 2018, and Uruguay's forward Luis Suarez (R) in Samara on June 25, 2018.

A relatively quiet game burst into life in the 40th minute when Varane sprinted clear of his marker to meet a well-placed Griezmann free kick with a perfectly angled header. Godin, though, is the embodiment of the dogged, determined and defensively brilliant side Diego Simeone has created in the Spanish capital.

"Antoine is saying that he is half-Uruguayan but he is French and he doesn't know what it is to feel Uruguayan", he said. "Making them respect us".

"When we went 2-0 down [against Japan] there was the psychological feeling of "OK, we have nothing to lose", which freed us up", said Red Devils manager Roberto Martinez.

That proved to be the last hint of any drama in what was overall a disappointing game which had promised much more.
