Godfather Godin won’t give ground to Griezmann in World Cup battle

Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani has left calf injury Article Image 0

The PSG main man scored two goals against Portugal in the Round of 16 to get Uruguay to this point.

"He's a very good player, like (Thierry) Henry a few years ago", he said.

France will meet Uruguay in a 2018 FIFA World Cup quarter-final on Friday, and ahead of the encounter, Luis Suarez has hit back at Antoine Griezmann for certain comments he has made in the build-up to the fixture.

Suarez, however, is not buying into it and says the player does not understand what it means to be from his home country. "We hope that he behaves well on the field and that he remembers that he is Uruguayan".

Since then, he has been in doubt for Friday's match with France. He did not train on Tuesday.

Midfielder Diego Laxalt said Uruguay would dig deep into its so-called "Garra Charrua" fighting spirit - named after a ferocious South American warrior tribe - to stop France.

And they are marshalled by the incomparable Godin, now 121 caps and counting.

As far as the Middle East and Egypt are concerned, that would be a welcome result of strategic significance. Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia agreed to work together to keep oil prices from rising.

He has been criticised in France for some "conservative" play, but they nullified any threat possessed by Uruguay and inflicted their first defeat of this World Cup after an nearly flawless first four games, winning all four and conceding just one goal.

But in this topsy-turvy World Cup, one thing for Uruguay has notably changed.

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo helps injured Uruguay's Edinson Cavani walking out during the round of 16 match between Uruguay and Portugal at the 2018 soccer World Cup at the Fisht Stadium in Sochi, Russia, Saturday, June 30, 2018. This time, only Rodrigo Bentancur has been booked in Russian Federation.

But it's not clear if they will see each other on the field, since Cavani has a calf injury that could rule him out of the match. The French midfielders are getting smothered quickly and often whenever they're outside of their third.20' - France appears to be getting into their rhythm and are threatening the Uruguayan defense more and more.

The two nations have met three times in the World Cup and Uruguay have not lost once.

In less than 24 hours you will know who will play and who will be on the bench.
