Round of 16: Uruguay vs Portugal

Recommended Posts

Uruguay subs haven't helped their ability to counter. Rodríguez, Stuani and Carlos Sánchez all slow. Slower than the players they replaced. There's a third for Uruguay on the break, but won't get there with these guys + Suárez refusing to move away from the halfway line

Godin's doing a Cannovaro 2006.

Golden ball winner there. Has been immense in every game.

Laxalt has been fantastic tonight. 

Yeah, he's been great considering he's more of a wide midfielder or wingback. Never played fullback at this level.

Portugal manager has to be regretting putting this Fernandes fella on, jesus wept :D

 

Generally a weird substitution. Don't they have any strikers left on the bench?

No way they give it to a defender. It'll be whichever finalist has the highest scorer probably :thdn:

Who does he play for? Can't say I've ever heard his name before the WC.

Very good player by the looks of it though.

I wonder if Ronaldo might consider retiring from international football after this.

Of course he won't ffs. He plays for personal records. He wants to be the top scorer in international football

Everyone on Uruguay's starting lineup has been immense.

A lot of them playing way above their usual level.

Genoa. But he's leaving this summer

Ahh, thanks. 

Leaving as in being sold, or becoming a FA?

Uruguay with vintage Italy performance. 7 out of 11 starters playing or making their name in Serie A.

Sold. He's said he wants to leave, so Genoa either sell or keep a player who doesn't want to be there

Alright, with two supposed GOATs out of the way, we can enjoy the World Cup from now on. No more one-man teams.

Haha! 

Not a big fan of Neymar as an individual then? 

No, I am not, he is a superb player when he wants and we haven't had a player as talented as Neymar in a long time (I think he is more talented than the Ronaldos, Romário, etc) but he is too much of a modern kind of star off the pitch and too selfish on the pitch.

Portugal had a lot of the ball but poor decisions constantly, not sad to see them go home.

Best team won but I feel a bit tight on Portugal.  Feel it could of been a pen from Godin in the 85th minute.  Just barges the player over but "there isn't enough in it"?  Oh and that was a foul where Ronaldo got booked for complaining as well.

Uruguay are bloody good at the back though, I gotta say.

Cannavaro did win the Ballon'd'Or that year, but IIRC Zidane got the Golden Ball of the tournament. The player is chosen before the final, so that's why Zizou won :D 

 

Similar thing happened in 2002, where Ronaldo won the Ballon'd'Or that year, but it was Kahn who won the Golden ball of the tournament

Hardly one man teams when both of them were terrible.

I'm not sure about better than R9 Ronaldo! Greatest striker of all time for me.

Uruguay deserve it. Man for man, they were fantastic and did just about everything right.

I do hope Cavani is alright though, didn't look good.

Neymar is a much more complete player, better technique too, but also is a bigger idiot...
