Head Coach Sampaoli Not Decided on Argentina's Starting Lineup for France Game

Russian Federation bids a sad farewell to both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who crashed out of the World Cup at the last 16 stage on the same day.

The 1986 World Cup victor attracted widespread criticism for an offensive gesture during Argentina's 2-1 victory over Nigeria, which saw Jorge Sampaoli's side secure a round-of-16 clash with France.

After almost five and a half hours of football, it was the first goal Uruguay had let in at this World Cup - indeed it was the first they had conceded in 2018.

Pepe is now the oldest player for Portugal to have scored a World Cup goal, with his strike in the round of 16 game against Uruguay coming at the age of 35 years, 124 days.

Portugal had 61 percent of the possession and four times as many shots at goal as the Uruguyans but Tabarez dismissed possession as a mere statistic and said what mattered was creating and converting chances. Nonetheless, the 31-year-old Barcelona striker says he is committed to his side's cause and isn't anxious about external factors.

"I felt pain in my calf and could not continue on the field".

Sanjay Dutt Broke Down After Watching 'Sanju': Rajkumar Hirani
Hirani's film was able to garner heavy footfalls at the theatres on the opening day itself and set the cash registers ringing. Paresh Rawal played Sunil Dutt while Manisha Koirala played Nargis in Sanju .

However, the 1998 World Cup champions have slipped to +850 on the World Cup championship odds after opening the tournament at +700, and have also fallen to defeat in all four previous meetings with Argentina while scoring just one total goal.

The loss meant that Messi has never been able to score in the knockout phase of a World Cup.

Javier Mascherano picked up his seventh yellow card of the World Cup against France, the most by one player in the history of the tournament since cards were introduced in the 1970 edition. "You need to really concentrate to make sure he is not successful against you, but that is very hard".

"Cristiano still has a lot to give to football and I hope he will stay to help the young players grow and develop".

Portugal will take part in the inaugural UEFA Nations League later this year, beginning against Italy in September.
