The quarter-final match between Uruguay and Portugal will take place in Sochi on Sunday (4am AEST).

It's not just in this World Cup that they have not been conceding goals - it has been like that for the whole of 2018. Will it be boring? "They're a strong team but we also have our qualities and we will try to win the game". He told reporters: "They are a typical South American side".

Under him they have won a Copa America and reached the semi-finals of the World Cup in 2010.

Uruguay, meanwhile, go into the knockout stages aiming to win their third World Cup, and first since 1950, in Russian Federation.

"We are in good shape, we have been working together for 12 years and achieving our objectives gradually, little by little", Tabarez said.

Gimenez and Suarez were respectively responsible for unremarkable 1-0 wins over Egypt and Saudi Arabia but the Barcelona striker and Cavani were both on target as hosts' Russian Federation were exposed to a gulf in class and a 3-0 defeat.

His partnership with Cavani will provide a stern test to a Portuguese defence that was picked apart by Spain and given a fright by Iran in their last group game.

What time does the FIFA World Cup 2018 Uruguay vs Portugal Round of 16 match begin?

Ronaldo is known to get visibly frustrated when he fails to score or make an impact in the game while Suarez's antics are known to all.

Cristiano Ronaldo will, of course, be the player to watch for A Selecao das Quinas after his four goals during the competition so far.

Cristiano Ronaldo can equal the record as the player with the most appearances at the World Cups and European Championships if he plays in Portugal's next match against Uruguay while Ronaldo is yet to score a goal in 424 minutes for Portugal in the knockout stages of the World Cup.

La Celeste's strength is based on the twin pillars of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani up front and Atletico Madrid centre-back pairing Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez, who must face up to a familiar foe.

"We have to play as a team". "It is true, though, that when both teams cancel each other out, that is where the individuals come to the fore".

"I think this Portugal team is ready for everything".
