Uruguay vs France Previous Meetings
The game plan couldn’t have been executed much more perfectly for Uruguay against Portugal last time out, after keeping a tight ship in defence and seeing Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani win the game for them. Cavani bagged a brace in the 2-1 victory in Sochi, while Suarez produced an excellent assist for his opener, as the team improved on their performance from four years prior.
Uruguay were eliminated in the round of 16 on that occasion, but now find themselves one game away from reaching the semi-finals, just as they did in 2010. The fitness of Cavani could be a critical factor in this game after he limped off against Portugal with just over 15 minutes left to play as he looks to eliminate the nation he resides in.
We were finally able to witness some of the best of France at this tournament in the Round of 16, as they defeated Argentina 4-3 in one of the games of the World Cup so far, competing with Spain’s incredible 3-3 draw with Portugal. Kylian Mbappe’s brace was the highlight of the contest, with the 19-year-old producing arguably the highlight of his short career to date in the game.
Though their defensive play was far from perfect, France did demonstrate their devastating ability on the counter-attack, as Argentina struggled to cope with the electric speed in which they were able to break. Uruguay are unlikely to leave such spaces on the break and Didier Deschamps’ team may need to find another way of breaking down their opponents
