The South American team is currently defensive and offensive in strong shape. By the way, defensive boss Diego Godin has been with a clean sheet for six games. An outstanding value, which is due to a robust appearance and above all a lot of experience.
The problem in the first two group events was rather the lacklustre offensive. Both Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez, a world-class attacking duo, disappointed, falling short of expectations. But then came the last group game, in which the two football giants awoke and let the host in this tournament for the first time look like a clear outsider.
It was a furious start to the tournament when Spain and Portugal drew 3: 3. Cristiano Ronaldo set another highlight with his three-pack. But what followed was disappointing from the Portuguese point of view. Against the Moroccans, the European champion was lucky that it was enough for a close, flattering 1: 0. Against the Iranian team again showed this staid element in the game of southern Europeans, so it must be stated: The Portuguese have started strong in this tournament, but also greatly diminished and now have to tremble before the knockout stages - unless the team increases. The only hope in the team is Ronaldo, the only one on the team who can make the difference. Opponent Uruguay has at least two of this category.
