Portugal – Uruguay: summary of the match

  • Edinson Cavani and Luis Suárez both scored for Uruguay at the 2010, 2014 and 2018 World Cups, and either could become the first player from that country to score in four different editions of the tournament.
  • Bruno Fernandes created more chances than any other Portuguese player in their win over Ghana last time out, becoming the second Portuguese player to provide two assists in a single World Cup match after José Torres against Brazil in 1966 .
  • Last time out against Ghana, Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score in five different editions of the World Cup. His eight goals in the tournament have come in the group stage – in the second round of matches, no player has scored more World Cup goals without ever scoring in the round of 16 than the Portuguese.
  • Portugal have lost just one of their last 13 World Cup group stage matches (W7 D5), losing 4-0 to Germany in their first game in 2014. They won their second game in five of their previous seven appearances in the competition, failing only in 1986 (0-1 v Poland) and 2014 (2-2 v USA).
  • Uruguay have kept a clean sheet in each of their last five World Cup group stage matches – no team has ever done so in six consecutive group matches in the competition’s history (including including the second and last group rounds of previous editions).
  • Uruguay have failed to score in their last two World Cup matches – they have only done so once in three consecutive matches at the tournament (between 1986 and 1990). However, the South American nation have won their second group match in each of the last three World Cups.
  • Following their 3-2 win over Ghana, Portugal are looking to win their first two group games for the third time in the World Cup. They’ve done it before in 1966 and 2006, eventually reaching the semi-finals of those two editions.
  • Portugal have won just one of their last nine meetings with South American nations in all competitions (D3 L5), beating Argentina 1-0 in a friendly in November 2014.
  • Uruguay have won four of their last five FIFA World Cup matches against European nations (including a 2-1 win over Portugal), but lost to France in their last such game. Sky Blue had only won two of their previous 25 matches before this round (D8 L15).
  • This is the second FIFA World Cup encounter between Portugal and Uruguay, with the South Americans knocking out Portugal in the second round of the 2018 edition in Russia.
