Cavani scored both goals in the 2-1 victory over Portugal last Saturday, having netted 10 times in 15 appearances in qualifying to send Uruguay to Russian Federation. Griezmann sent in a free kick from the right side and Varane raced across the area.

"I love Uruguayan culture and I love Uruguayans, so I have a lot of respect for them", Griezmann said.

Luis Suarez has warned France star Antoine Griezmann that he is going to get a close-up and personal view of what it means to be Uruguayan in Friday's World Cup quarter-final.

But 19-year-old Mbappe has announced himself as one of the world's hottest talents with three goals, including two against Argentina and an awesome 70-metre sprint that ended with him winning a penalty.

If France win, Simeone will be unable to count on Lucas but if Uruguay go on to the semi-final, he will be without Godin and Gimenez.

"I include myself in the three million Uruguayans waiting for Edi", Suarez told a news conference.

Next up the grizzly, experienced World Cup campaigners take on a young France - the exciting Kylian Mbappe, and Gimenez and Godin's Atletico teammate Antoine Griezmann - on Friday, bidding for a place in the semi-finals.

"I was also playing against friends, so I thought it was normal not to celebrate". Fans might have lost Ronaldo and Messi, but they surely won't miss a great game.

Paul Pogba 8 - Ran the show for France as he continued to show that he can play in a midfield two, contrary to popular belief. "Luckily there is a World Cup every four years and this effort continues".

50' - Incredibly delivery from Mbappe to nearly find Pogba in the box from a free kick, but Uruguay's Muslera punched it out of harm's way. But it has undergone a revival in the last 12 years under the 71-year-old Tabarez, a former elementary school teacher. "The fact of [forward Edinson] Cavani missing the game due to injury can't be an excuse", Suarez said.

Didn't make as spectacular an intervention as he had against Argentina, but Pavard still enhanced his reputation with a solid defensive display.
