La Celeste's Cavani put them into the lead, getting on the end of a powerful cross from his strike partner Luis Suarez on seven minutes. 

Cristiano Ronaldo couldn't find the spark for Das Quinas as Uruguay defended like packs of wolves, snuffing out any danger in groups of twos and threes, preventing Portugal from infiltrating the penalty area. 

Portugal began the second half on top as Raphael Guerreiro put the ball on a plate for Pepe to head home the equaliser in the 52nd minute. 

A swift reply followed as Cavani treated us all to his pure attacking instinct with a glorious finesse finish past Rui Patricio to sink the hearts of Portugal fans. 


Fernando Muslera - 6.5

The 32-year-old passed Uruguay's first test by saving Ronaldo's shot in the sixth minute. He was in charge of the aerial bombardment, taking care of business from crosses. 

Martin Caceres - 7.5

A pass that opened up space for Cavani got the attacking move going which led to the opening goal. Brilliantly hassled Raphael Guerreiro, forcing him to turnover possession on numerous occasions. 

Jose Giminez - 7

Did an exceptional job at jockeying Ronaldo when he threatened to shoot countless times on the edge of the area, forcing him inside and backwards. 

Diego Godin - 7

He shut out Portugal's threat through the centre with the help of his holding midfielders Rodrigo Bentancur and Lucas Torreira. While defending a short corner, Pepe was left free to head home the equaliser on 53 minutes. 

Diego Laxalt - 6.5

Adequate defending although he struggled to keep the ball under his control. Most of his attacking work was done by Bentancur and Luis Suarez who occupied the left channels.
