Ronaldo, Portugal unable to continue great run at World Cup

Russian Federation 2018 has been a tournament where strikers have come to the party; Harry Kane has scored 5 goals and Romelu Lukaku has 4, yet Uruguay are the only side to play with two out-and-out strikers.

Football fans were left scratching their heads when both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were both ousted in the round of 16, following Argentina's loss to France and Portugal falling to Uruguay.

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".

Portugal hasn't reached the World Cup quarterfinals since 2006, when a young Ronaldo led the team to the semifinals and an eventual fourth-place finish.

"Your support was and always will be fundamental to us", Ronaldo wrote on Instagram alongside the Portuguese flag.

Together, they have scored 98 goals in 207 appearances for Uruguay.

The two goals scored by Edinson Cavani knocked out Portugal.

Christiano Ronaldo in the last match of FIFA World Cup against Uruguay not only lost the chance to get into the quarter-finals but also the dream of the possibility of winning the last World Cup.

The 2018 World Cup returns on Friday after a two-day break England beating Colombia in the last round of 16 game on Tuesday. "They have been incredible players", Neville said.

The Portugal skipper further said that he is happy with kind of efforts put in by the players and asserted that this team will continue to win in the future.

"About Cavani, we don't know, we're just waiting for a few days", Suarez said.

And against Uruguay, they managed 61 percent ball possession, played more than double the number of passes of their opponent, and with a much better pass accuracy. "Portugal had more possession and were often in our half of the pitch, and it would have been better for us to have more of the ball and play the game closer to their goal".

"But we'll face them as we've been doing until now. You're not lucky one, unfortunately", a user wrote.
