Suarez: Uruguay can cope without Cavani

Suarez: Uruguay can cope without Cavani

"Congratulations to Uruguay, it is very sad for Portugal though", said Fernando Santos, coach of Portugal who has reached the knockout stages in major tournament for the fourth time-twice with Greece and twice with Portugal.

Ronaldo lit up the early stages of the World Cup with a stunning hat trick against Spain and in total scored four goals in his four appearances in Russian Federation this summer.

"Cavani sustained an injury tonight and we will have to see how that evolves as it's not clear at this stage how serious it is", he said.

Ronaldo had a great start at the tournament in Russian Federation, scoring four goals in two matches, but he was held scoreless in the next two games as Portugal lost first place in its group and eventually was eliminated by Uruguay. 'The whole team sacrificed so we could get the win, ' said Suarez.

Pepe headed Portugal level in the 55th minute, the first goal Uruguay have conceded in the tournament.

"We know that in Portugal, the squares are full, the people are together and rooting for us and we feel their presence here, so a word to the Portuguese people - we are very sad that we weren't able to make it", he told reporters. He also joined Pele, Miroslav Klose and Uwe Seeler as the only players to score in four World Cups.

"Organization of the world Cup I was pleasantly surprised".

Uruguay will seek to summon up all their famous defensive spirit in Friday's quarter-final against France to shackle the Europeans' lighting-fast teenage top-scorer Kylian Mbappe. All three played a part at this year's World Cup and all have turned 30 and might not be around to play in Qatar in another four years. "I think what we did best today was to help the team".

The only downside for Oscar Tabarez's side was the sight of Cavani limping off late on, raising a question mark over his fitness for next week's last eight showdown with the French in Nizhny Novgorod. "You need to really concentrate to make sure he is not successful against you, but that is very hard".

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.
