It meant Cristiano Ronaldo was knocked out of the tournament - hours after Lionel Messi and Argentina were also eliminated, beaten 4-3 by Les Bleus.

Forward of Paris Saint-Germain, Cavani scored once at each half of the match, before he was injured and left the pitch supported by Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo.

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 global goal-scorer and only second in the world to Iran's Ali Daei.

Ronaldo will be aged 37 by the time the next World Cup rolls around, but following the Selecao's earlier-than-expected exit from Russian Federation 2018, Santos insists that the five-time Ballon d'Or victor may stick around.

He, along with his fellow Luis Suarez, strategized well against Portugal and were able t pull them down. The Barcelona striker cut in and curled back, finding Cavani who headed the ball into the top right.

Together, they have scored 98 goals in 207 appearances for Uruguay.

Their efforts finally yielded before the hour's mark.

"This I will do another time", - quotes the words NRK Ronaldo that he said after the defeat against Uruguay in 1/8 finals of the 2018 world Cup. They could have proceeded to the knockout stage as the Group B victor until late second half when a controversial penalty goal from the opponent forced them to settle in a draw.

Midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur said that Cavani "is doing very well, happy about advancing".

England beat Colombia on penalties after dramatic night in Moscow
England finally ended their penalties curse when they beat Colombia 4-3 in a shootout, completing a nerve-wracking 120 minutes. Even if Rodriguez is out, Radamel Falcao and Colombia have enough firepower on paper to still come away victorious.

Hosepipe ban remains in place across Northern Ireland
Meanwhile, tankering of water is ongoing, to supplement the reservoirs in Doon, Bruff, Newcastle West, Ardagh and Loughill. Roads melted, train tracks reached 49C and a hosepipe ban came into force in Northern Ireland on Friday evening.

Trump administration rescinds Obama-era guidance on race and college admissions
The Trump administration's Justice Department had already signaled concern about the use of race in admissions decisions. The Trump administration's plan would scrap the existing policies and encourage schools not to consider race at all.

Portugal were so close to level again in the 70 minute when Silva's drove the shot above the bar.

Oscar Tabarez, remarkably in his 19th World Cup match as Uruguay coach, has built his side from the back and Pepe's 55th- minute goal for Portugal was the first they have conceded this year.

In the game Portugal did blow up their chance once, when Ronaldo missed out on a penalty. "My players have ambition, me too, but it will be a hard match", said Deschamps, who is now the longest-serving France coach, with 80 matches in charge.

He said: 'Uruguay is a South-American team very hard to play. "I think what we did best today was to help the team. In the second we were better, but we didn't make it", he explained.

"It was hard", he continued. "We have a team with many young players, and of course we all want him there with us".

After a disappointing 1-1 draw against Switzerland, 2-0 wins over Costa Rica, Serbia and Mexico have taken Brazil into a seventh straight quarter-final and they remain the favourites to erase the scars of a humiliating 7-1 semi-final thrashing at the hands of Germany four years ago.

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".

"If each one of us manages to do what we know we can, then we can achieve this". It will be very hard for us.
