Brilliant Cavani scores twice to help Uruguay inch past European champions Portugal

By QLSports

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal were shown the exit by Edison Cavani’s Uruguay after the latter played the game of their lives in the World Cup round of 16 match in Sochi today.

The Uruguayan forward scored a superb brace to give his side a memorable 2-1 win over European champions Portugal.

Uruguay’s victory earned them a quarterfinal against France on Friday and sent world player of the year Cristiano Ronaldo home after a subdued performance.
Cavani put Uruguay ahead in the seventh minute when he evaded the Portugal defence to meet Luis Suarez’s pinpoint cross with a bullet header at the far post.
Pepe headed Portugal level in the 55th, the first goal Uruguay have conceded in the tournament. But Uruguay regained the lead seven minutes later when Rodrigo Bentancur found Cavani and he curled a brilliant first-time shot past Rui Patricio from the edge of the penalty area.
