Is Cristiano Ronaldo retiring from global football?

Is Cristiano Ronaldo retiring from global football?

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

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, center, reacts after the round of 16 match between Uruguay and Portugal at the 2018 soccer World Cup at the Fisht Stadium in Sochi, Russia, Saturday, June 30, 2018.

"The whole team sacrificed so we could get the win", Suarez said.

Portugal lost the match because of smashing kicks by Cavani but still, Ronaldo came forward to give his shoulder to the injured opponent. Before the festival of attacking football on display against Argentina, Les Bleus had scored only three goals and had been harshly criticized by French media for its mediocre and boring displays.

We've got our top talent on hand from England, the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Australia and Africa - many of whom will be based out in Russian Federation for the tournament - to analyse each and every one of the 64 matches.

It was little surprise, therefore, that Santos urged the Real Madrid forward to keep playing for the national side. "We have a team with many young players and of course we all want him there with us".

Edinson Cavani scored in both half of the match to send Oscar Tabarez' side through to the last eight of the tournament. "We have a young and ambitious squad", he said.

"It was hard", he continued. Portugal's possession advantage was meaningless because it couldn't break down the Uruguayan defense.

"I am confident and happy because this team will always fight with all their strength", he said.

The first game of the day is the main attraction and sees France take on Argentina. "That is our best chance against any adversary, and we know that France will be very tough indeed". They have two exceptional strikers, Griezmann and Mbappe - they're very fast indeed.

"Uruguay is a south-American team very hard to play", Deschamps told French television program Telefoot on Sunday. "On a post by Antonella captioned "#VamosPapi", which means "Go Daddy", people commented saying "Papi is a loser" and "I hope you will tell Messi to play a better match against Nigeria".
