Tournament: FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 – play offs – ¼ finals
South Americans are spending the current tournament with very good statistics: 4 matches and 4 victories. Uruguay has managed to overplay at a group stage of the World Cup Egypt (1:0), Saudi Arabia (1:0) and Russia (3:0). In 1/8 finals the tea of Tabarez has for the first time missed own goal but then the football players have managed to overplay Portugal (2:1) thanks to Cavani’s double. Being injured d in that match, Cavani’s participation in a quarterfinal is under a big question and this is serious damage on the attacking line of Uruguay.
Suarez demonstrates good form now but the player from Barcelona depends on his team mates. To play with Stuani and Gomez is absolutely different to playing with magnificent Cavani. However, the main ace in the hole in a game of Uruguay is its defense which seems to be iron made and has managed to stop Ronaldo in the 1/8 finals. Godin, Muslera, Giménez, Lasalt and Cáceres are interacting with each other on the football field and Torreira and Vesino are covering the football players in the midfield.
This European national team initially was considered to be one of the main challengers for the victory in this tournament and France is confirming this fact by its game. And though the group stage for Didier Deschamps’s team was not very powerful: France has won over Australia with the minimum score (2:1) and also over Peru (1:0) and later has tied with Denmark (0:0). And in 1/8 finals France has beaten Argentina (4:3), and, despite the score, the victory has been won with an obvious advantage France has made several mistakes and Argentina has made the score 2:1. Then France has improved and Argentina fell down and the score became 4:2. It means that the team is strong enough to change the score in its benefit.
The main ace in the hole of France is the strong line-up, where each position is closed by two more or less equal football leaders. Such football players as Griezmann, Varane, Lloris, Kanté, Mbappé, Oigba became the leaders of this national team at the World Cup 2018. But also other positions of France are closed by top-level football players.
