Uruguay not just focusing on Cristiano Ronaldo

Share

Cristiano Ronaldo (four goals) is one goal behind Harry Kane (five) in the race for the golden boot. It has been like that for the whole of 2018.

The Madrid derby comes to the shores of the Black Sea in the last-16 with Uruguayan captain Diego Godin, of Atletico, and his club teammate Jose Maria Gimenez coming up against Real and Portugal's five-time Ballon d'Or victor.

The World Cup has seen a number of fierce encounters down the years from the "Battle of Santiago" in 1962 to the violent game between Portugal and Holland in 2006.

That approach has remained the same in Russian Federation, but of the 32 teams at the competition, only Saudi Arabia and Spain boast a cleaner disciplinary record than Uruguay, who have committed just 42 fouls in three games.

Uruguay switched from the usual 4-4-2 formation to a more fluid 4-3-2-1 against Russian Federation and reaped the benefits, but Oscar Tabarez will probably revert to type in expectation of a low-scoring game.

Cristiano Ronaldo didn't have his greatest night against Iran on Monday. If Ronaldo plays alone, we will lose. "You have a coach who has been working with them for 12 years, very experienced, very high-quality", he said, adding that they have yet to concede a goal in 2018.

"He is the best player in the world in my opinion and it's natural that the team depends on him, but you can ask the same question to Uruguay's coach too, if his team depends on Suarez or (Edinson) Cavani".

Uruguay were the only side to come through the group stage in Russian Federation without letting in a goal.

Since the format of the World Cup changed in 1986 to include a round of 16, Uruguay have been eliminated on three of the four occasions they've reached that stage, losing in 1986, 1990 and 2014, but progressing in 2010 against South Korea. We're closer than ever to achieving our real objectives and we want to do this at the World Cup.

All five of Uruguay's goals at the 2018 World Cup have been scored from set-pieces (3 from corners, 1 from direct free-kick and 1 from indirect free-kick).

Luis Suarez of Uruguay reacts during the match against Saudi Arabia. However, they have lost their last three games in the World Cup knockout stages (1 goal scored, 5 conceded). However, he did score a hat-trick against Spain in his previous game at Sochi's Fisht Stadium. And if Uruguay can lock out Ronaldo again and send European champions Portugal home, Godin will surely have a lot to do with it.

Uruguay remind me so much of Atletico Madrid. If Ronaldo is at his very best for Portugal then Uruguay could be in trouble, but that's a big if - he's been distinctly average since the hat-trick against Spain. They were poor against Iran and I think this is where their tournament ends.
