Tabarez coy on Cavani fitness for France World Cup clash

Tabarez coy on Cavani fitness for France World Cup clash

Cavani was taken off with 18 minutes to go as Uruguay beat Portugal 2-1 thanks to two goals from the striker. Griezmann sent in a free kick from the right side and Varane raced across the area.

61': GOAAAAAAAL! Antoine Griezmann scores from a long range as the Uruguayan goalkeeper fails to make the save.

Luis Suarez is confident Uruguay can nullify the threat from France's teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe, as they prepare for their World Cup quarter-final clash later this week.

He said: "I didn't celebrate because when I started as a professional I was supported by a Uruguayan who taught me the good and the bad in football and I have a lot of respect for Uruguay".

Griezmann, though, knows Godin and another Atletico teammate, Jose Maria Gimenez, will not give Mbappe the same space to exploit his pace that a disorganised Argentina did.

"I have to apologise to all the people in Uruguay and my teammates".

With the United Kingdom enjoying a sustained spell of hot weather, Yadav said he felt comfortable at Old Trafford. If you go back and analyse how Alex Hales and Jos played him, it was actually pretty smart.

Since then, he has been in doubt for Friday's match with France. 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. "Apart from that, they didn't have many great opportunities".

Mbappe, who has modeled his game after Cristiano Ronaldo and is being compared to Zinedine Zidane, also picked up a second-half yellow card for falling to the ground as if in agony after a touch from an opponent.

At 31, he comes to the World Cup on the back of a successful first season with Girona in the Spanish Primera Division with 21 goals in 33 games.

Uruguay has a "unique" team spirit because their victories mean so much to the players and the country, one of those inside the South American team camp said this week.

Uruguay have conceded just once in winning all seven of their matches in 2018. But it has undergone a revival in the last 12 years under the 71-year-old Tabarez, a former elementary school teacher.

Les Bleus put in a professional performance to reach the last four for the first time since 2006. Instead, the team made a decision to dominate the majority of the game and win rather convincingly on the back of the one-two attacking punch of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. "So if he plays against us, he'll have destroyed science, so stop making us believe that he'll play against us".
