Jorge Sampaoli explains touchline exchange with Lionel Messi over Aguero sub

Meanwhile, Lionel Messi - Ronaldo's rival for the best player in the world mantle - declined to speak to the media after Argentina were eliminated from the World Cup. "The team played well". I'm very proud to represent the Portugal national team.

While Ronaldo will be bitterly disappointed to be heading home earlier than planned from Russian Federation, he at least has the consolation of having won his country's first ever European Championship, two years ago in France.

Messi did ride to their rescue with a superb opening goal to help squeeze past Nigeria 2-1 to set up a meeting with France.

But today, it was Edinson Cavani who scored twice to earn victory for the Uruguayans.

Cristiano Ronaldo "still has a lot to give football", says Fernando Santos, with Portugal expecting their skipper to report for UEFA Nations League duty. We wanted to win, we fought well, but Uruguay should be congratulated.

"Though he is an inspiration for his team but that was not enough to make him go far in this world Cup", Siasia said on Super Sport. Back then, Portugal lost to France and eventually finished fourth after losing to Germany in the consolation game.

Captain Hugo Lloris returns in goal after being rested with defender Samuel Umtiti, midfielders Paul Pogba and Blaise Matuidi as well as forward Kylian Mbappe for their third group match against Denmark. In this tournament, I will score him below average. He also was almost given a red card when his elbowing of an opponent was reviewed on video. He only spoke briefly with the media in Russian Federation.

"It hurts not to be a champion", Messi said at the time.

"We expect all players, former players, staff, fans and everyone to behave in a respectful manner, but having stars like Diego, [Carles] Puyol, [Javier] Zanetti, who have built up the fabric of football, and having them working with us on our goals is part of a much bigger picture".
