Cavani is pessimistic for the quarter final !!

Uruguay will nearly certainly be without their striker Edison Cavani for their World Cup quarterfinal against France in Nizhny Novgorod on Friday as he struggles to recover from a calf injury.

NAIJ.com previously reported that Uruguay defeated Portugal 2-1 to become the second country to reach Russian Federation 2018 quarter finals.

Ronaldo will be 35 by the next European Championship, and 37 by the next World Cup in Qatar.

Cristiano Ronaldo declined to comment on his worldwide future after bowing out of the World Cup following Portugal's 2-1 defeat by Uruguay. Comments like, "You must now say Cristiano go to house", "Good bay Portugal" and "Uruguay, jeje" were posted by Uruguay fans.

Despite all those records, the skipper preferred to focus on the team: "It's not the time to talk about the future of the players, the coaches, and the position the side is in".

Ronaldo's great start in Russian Federation allowed him to surpass the combined total of three goals he had scored in his previous three World Cups. Doctors inform that Cavani has already started rehabilitation and perform some exercise.

Japan had acquired four, Senegal six, which elevated Japan to second place in Group H and eliminated Senegal from the tournament. They said what? James McOnie, "The Crowd Goes Wild" host: "As predicted, England and Belgium both trying to throw this game".


"We have played without Edinson already, during qualification, and the team adapted to the situation", explained Suarez.

But the team's latest chance to win a major title at the senior level came to an end Saturday when Argentina lost to France 4-3 at the World Cup.

Cavani limped off shortly after scoring his second goal in Uruguay's 2-1 defeat of Portugal, which booked their last-eight spot.

France entered the tournament as one of the favourites but never did hit top gear during the group stage, carving out two narrow victories and settling for a goalless draw with Denmark. "You need to really concentrate to make sure he is not successful against you, but that is very hard".

"Certainly, yes, Cristiano still has a lot to give to football". But we will try our best and look to impose our way of playing on them, using our strengths. "There is a tournament in September, the UEFA (Nations League) and we hope he will be with us to help the younger ones to grow", he told reporters.
