The second game of Round of 16 in the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia will be between Portugal and Uruguay. Both teams are undefeated and bolster explosive firepower in their attack.
Cristiano Ronaldo has already scored four of the team’s five goals in the tournament. This stat can be of concern for any other side, but Portugal. Coach Fernando Santos has assembled his team in such a way where his captain is the main man but also is supported by his teammates. There are no ego clashes, and everybody knows they are doing this for their country’s glory. A similar scenario was seen in the UEFA Euro Cup 2016, which the team won.
However, concerns over their cautionary measures have risen. The team was dominated by Iran and Morocco in their last two games. This is a weakness that the management needs to solve before it gets exploited.
Meanwhile, Uruguay has had a perfect record in the tournament so far. The team has gelled well and also have produced commanding results whenever it was required. They are still yet to concede a goal in the competition, and with the likes of Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez, the team has one of the best defensive partnerships.
Luis Suarez has also broken free from the shackles and has scored two goals. His teammate Edinson Cavani also opened his tally in the last game. All in all, the momentum is with the side, and so is the form.
