30 Jun 21:59
It's all over! And in one day, Lionel Messi (Argentina) and Cristiano Ronaldo exit the Soccer World Cup ...

Uruguay 2-1 Portugal 

30 Jun 21:56

93' Ricardo Quaresma has been challenged but the referee waves play on and Ronaldo is furious!

The captain gets a yellow card and if Portugal were to go through, Ronaldo will miss the quarter-final.

30 Jun 21:52
30 Jun 21:51
91' Searching cross into Uruguay's danger area and Diego Laxalt to the rescue with his clearance ...

90' FOUR minutes of stoppage time ...
30 Jun 21:48
89' Getting a bit dirty out there as Portugal get frustrated ...
30 Jun 21:47

30 Jun 21:45

84' VAR VAR VAR ??? 

Ricardo Pereira gets challenged by Godin in the penalty area and the obvious shouts for a spot kick ... referee smiles and waves play on!

30 Jun 21:42
82' Not looking good for Portugal ...
30 Jun 21:40
80' Sub for Uruguay: Sanchez on for Nández
30 Jun 21:39
78' Desperate from Ronaldo as he shoots from 30 yards out only to see his effort easily blocked ...
30 Jun 21:38
75' Cavani looking grim on the bench ...
30 Jun 21:37

73' Cristiano Ronaldo helps Cavani limp off the field. His night looks like it may be over. He will be hoping hes done enough to secure victory.

He’s replaced by Stuani ...

30 Jun 21:36
71' Theres a scramble in the box after Muslera spills a cross. Bernardo Silva looks to prevent him from regathering, but fouls him and fires off target anyway.
30 Jun 21:33

69' Quaresma darts down the right flank but not with much speed as we see their attack fizzle out.

Portugal's quality showing now?

30 Jun 21:32

Portugal equalise early through Pepe! After threatening Uruguay's goal for the first time, Portugal win a corner in which Pepe ghosts behind Ronaldo as the ball fizzes over the captain only for the defender to head home past Muslera.

30 Jun 21:13

50' Five minutes into the second-half

Cristiano Ronaldo had 24 touches for Portugal in the first half against Uruguay, but none of those came in the opposition box.

30 Jun 21:12

48' Early nerves for Portugal here as Patricio plays a poor looking pass towards Pepe, who nearly loses out to an energetic Suarez.

Holds laugh in* ... back to back mishaps in defence for Portugal now ...

30 Jun 21:10

47' Godin Godin Godin!

Man has been solid in defence and clears another searching cross from Joao Mario out

30 Jun 21:09
46' Whoops! Fonte almost lets himself down there as Bentancur buzzes past him after an attempted back pass ... out of danger though | close call!
30 Jun 21:06

45' Cavani gets the second-half underway ...

Can Portugal (read Ronaldo) get back into this fixture?

30 Jun 20:56

30 Jun 20:47


Urugua 40% -- 60% Portugal

30 Jun 20:45
39' Uruguay's defence just clearing any crossing attempts by the Portuguese. This time its Godin. As the ball targets Guedes.
30 Jun 20:42

36' Bit of a drab now. Guys looking rather tired at the moment. Or just out of ideas. Uruguay doing well at keeping Portugal's main man quiet.

Uruguay are in the lead and just going through the motions ...

30 Jun 20:37


Luis Suárez has now provided the assist for 12 of Edinson Cavani's 44 goals for Uruguay (27%).

30 Jun 20:36


Ronaldo stands over it and does his ridiculous PRE-free-kick ritual (do I even have to explain what he does?) ... The 33-year-old releases one last deep breath and runs towards the ball, only to see his effort hit the Uruguay wall. Poor effort. Better luck next time CR7.

30 Jun 20:33
VAR has been awfully quiet of late ... 
30 Jun 20:31
30 Jun 20:30

26' Uruguay not making it any easier for Portugal to get back into this match and desevedly have the lead. 

Fonte and Ronaldo both miss free header following a free-kick from Carvalho into the 18th area. 

30 Jun 20:24


The Barcelona forward is given the opportunity to strike a ball from 25-yards in a free-kick situation. He hits the ball low and hard only for Rui Patricio palm it away before the Portugal defence takes care of the rest by clearing the danger.

30 Jun 20:21

17' Nice free-flowing game so far with both teams showing their intent to attack.

Guedes sees his shot deflected and saved by Muslera
