Suarez Hurt in Uruguay Training as Cavani Remains a Doubt

It would be a huge blow for the South Americans, whose deadly duo of Cavani and Luis Suarez has seen them win every game this tournament.

In other words, it won't be Suarez vs. Ronaldo when Uruguay and Portugal meet in the World Cup round of 16 on Saturday night, it'll be team against team.

Cristiano Ronaldo "still has a lot to give football", says Fernando Santos, with Portugal expecting their skipper to report for UEFA Nations League duty.

The European champions equalised when Pepe headed home following a short corner, but Uruguay swept up the field and carved them open once more, with Cavani firing home his second and Portugal unable to respond.

Speaking about the player, the AUF commented that Edinson Cavani "continues to be in pain" but that he would undertake physical rehabilitation to control the injury's development.

For Portugal, this was surely the last World Cup hurrah for Ronaldo who, like his great rival Lionel Messi, still hasn't scored a goal in the knock out rounds of the tournament.

"We have to congratulate Uruguay because they scored twice", he said. What Ronaldo lacked was somebody to combine with, in the way that Cavani and Suarez did-two players of nearly equal class but contrasting styles.

The 41-year-old retired from top-flight football in 2011, after scoring 291 goals in 438 club career games and 62 global goals for Brazil.

Suarez with 53 goals and Cavani 44 - 12 of them from assists by his striking partner - are their two all-time leading scorers and again showed their understanding with an astonishing opening goal in the seventh minute.

It has not been any different at his club PSG either.

When the Swede joined Manchester United, Cavani finally had the chance to prove his worth and did not disappoint.

Portugal opened their World Cup campaign in Sochi with a thrilling 3-3 draw against Spain, and midfielder Adrien Silver said his team have what it takes to score against a Uruguay rearguard that has not been breached this year.
