Uruguay vs France: Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup Quarter Final
Uruguay vs France: France currently lead Uruguay by a two goals, thanks to Rafael Varane header From the free kick conceded by Bentancur, Antoine Griezmann whips a cross in from the French right and it’s glanced goalwards by the Real Madrid man, and he scores the second goal.
The ball nestles in the bottom corner and France lead.
Hugo Lloris gets down low to his right to keep out Martin Caceres with a stunning stop, and that save kept France Les Blues a goal ahead of Uruguay.
It’s a costly error by Fernando Muslera that sees France double their lead. Les Bleus’ No7 gets the ball out of his feet on the edge of the penalty area and his shot heads straight at the Uruguayan goalkeeper – but he is unable to stop the effort and parries it over the line.
A moment to forget for the hugely experienced goalkeeper, who is featuring in his 102nd game for Uruguay today.
Everything that Uruguay did not suffer in previous matches, they suffered against France. Although Les Bleus dominated the game, La Celeste created dangerous opportunities in the opposition area, but found Hugo Lloris in fine form. In the second half, Tabarez made changes in the middle of the pitch to give more dynamism to his side, but they did not manage to alter the outcome of the match. Uruguay say goodbye to the World Cup with their heads held high, due to their solid performances throughout the tournament and today.
