Predicting The Outcome Of The World Cup Quarter Finals

Just after hours of Argentina crashing out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, came yet another shocking result. "There is another mentality", said Uruguay's record scorer, who has 53 goals in 102 appearances. One of the simplest bets you can make is on the outcome of any match, and again France are at the shorter price of 2.00 to get a result by the full-time whistle - Uruguay are at over double that price, at 4.50. That's football at the end of the day, there can only be one victor, and it goes to the best team rather than the best player. Cavani, who is also on three strikers so far, is priced further out at 26.00 to finish with the Golden Boot. "Your greatest mistake was to visit matches".

"We know that France will be very tough indeed". She also became a mother to Ronaldo's sons, who were born from surrogate mothers earlier. "I think the whole group has been working well".

Les Bleus eased their way out of the group stage with little fuss although they are yet to hit anywhere near top form, with a number of key players including striker Antoine Griezmann below their best.

Uruguay have already beaten European opposition twice at the World Cup, conceding just one goal in the process, and Suarez believes their defence has more than enough to deal with the 19-year old.

When he moved to Atletico, he befriended more Uruguayans: Cristian Rodriguez, then Gimenez, Godin and fitness coach Oscar Ortega. Neither player has ever managed to score a goal at the knockout stage despite appearing in four World Cups.

"We have a team with many young players and of course we all want him there with us". Having been breached once, the Uruguayan defenders stood firm and Portugal, despite shifting through the gears in the second-half, were restricted to shots from distance.

"All I can say is that we hope he behaves well on the pitch and remembers he is half-Uruguayan!" With Sweden's Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the attack, Cavani always had to play a secondary role.

But in this topsy-turvy World Cup, one thing for Uruguay has notably changed. "But I know the desire and attitude he has and we know that if it was up to him he will be there".

A slow start and an 89th minute victor that gave them a forgettable 1-0 win over a Mohamed Salah-less Egypt in their first game, has now given way to a campaign with real hope of winning the World Cup.
