    More from Uruguay boss Oscar Tabarez:

    Uruguay 2-1 Portugal


    Here we go. Oscar Tabarez is finally asked about Cavani.

    More from Portugal boss Fernando Santos: "First of all, congratulations to Uruguay. It's very sad for Portugal though. There's a real sadness in the dressing room that we weren't able to make it through for them. In football, there are no moral victories and I would have preferred to play worse and win the match. But I do feel that the second half was very good from us in terms of desire and our determination to score. We tried our best and we played a good game, I think. But you always want to win, and we lost, so well done to Uruguay for making it through."

  10. El Maestro is here


    Oscar Tabarez is here to face the media.

    A former teacher, Tabarez is known as “El Maestro”. He has looked a little frailer since the last World Cup and reports in his homeland say he now suffers from Guillain-Barre syndrome, a disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks part of the nervous system.

    His response when questioned about it was “mind your own business”.

    Ha ha!

  11. Touches don't matter

    Uruguay 2-1 Portugal


    He may have only had one touch in the second half within a binoculars sight of the goal, but Edinson Cavani made it count...

    Video caption: Mbappe's low strike puts France ahead

    A lot has happened in a short space of time for Kylian Mbappe.

    Aged 19, he is lighting up the World Cup for France, scoring twice in their 4-3 victory over Argentina in the last 16.

    It is the latest step in a remarkable rise for a player who was celebrating passing his French high school exams just three summers ago.

    In less than two years he has become a double Ligue 1 title winner and a regular for France and Paris St-Germain, for whom he is expected to sign permanently this summer for 180m euros.

    Mbappe spent his formative years developing his skills at AS Bondy in the north-eastern suburbs of Paris. The club are experiencing a surge in popularity and are inundated with new members wanting to follow in the footsteps of Mbappe.

    BBC Sport went to the club where Mbappe started his football journey when he was just a toddler and spoke to those who knew him.
