Cavani 'in pain' with calf injury

Cavani 'in pain' with calf injury

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.

Portugal had no Plan B to fall back on to answer Cavani's masterful strikes on either side of Pepe's headed goal in the 55th minute. In what was one of Russia World Cup's most spectacular matches, 33-year-old Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo lit up the game with a hat-trick.

Deschamps has compared playing Uruguay to facing Peru, which narrowly lost to France 1-0 in group play on a goal by Mbappe.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos threw up his hands in disgust, realising that coming from behind a second time against this Uruguay defence was going to be a tall order.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos spent the World Cup denying that his team was only about Cristiano Ronaldo, but he will leave Russian Federation with even more doubts about the future of the European champions once their talismanic forward decides to hang up his boots.

When it comes to Cavani, though, Suarez says it is unclear at the moment whether he will be able to face Didier Deschamps' side. Things don't depend on just one player. "We know it's a special game for us, I don't know for him".

Uruguay, world champions in 1930 and 1950, will play France, who beat Argentina 4-3 earlier in the day, in Nizhny Novgorod on July 6.

In contrast, Uruguay march on with arguably the best defence in global football and one of the best strike pairings anywhere.

"We are here to play all seven matches, right up until the final, and we will see what happens", he said.

Suarez's running mate, Edinson Cavani, scored both goals in the knockout win over Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal but is nursing a hamstring injury, and it' unclear if he will play. "You need to really concentrate to make sure he is not successful against you, but that is very hard".

Portugal will take part in the inaugural UEFA Nations League later this year, beginning against Italy in September.

Ronaldo reached the semi-finals with Portugal in his first World Cup in Germany, but has never made it past the last 16 since then.
