Why Griezmann didn't celebrate France goal against Uruguay

England Iceland Euro 2016

"Although our team will be better in two years with more life experience, maybe the cards on injuries and things won't fall as kindly and we won't get this opportunity again", he told ITV News.

"Some people are saying we are trying to play games‚ but we are not‚" added the 71-year-old. The 1998 champions will next face either Brazil or Belgium on Tuesday in St. Petersburg.

Brazil is ranked second and Belgium third.

Tabarez was keen to praise Cavani for his attitude in training, though, and thinks the camaraderie in the squad between the senior stars and younger players will stand Uruguay in good stead as it bids to reach the semifinals.

"Muslera was our support during this entire process and I would never wash my hands of one of my players", Tabarez said. Emil Forsberg's 66th-minute goal was the difference for the Blågult.

France had 57 per cent of the possession and made almost 200 more passes than Uruguay but only had two shots on target - a meagre return for a line-up that included Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba.

He likes the traditional South American drink mate, he speaks Spanish like someone from the South American country and he's been pictured wearing the team's jersey.




"Lloris had a great save", France coach Didier Deschamps said.

Cavani trained alone on Thursday at Uruguay's camp in Bor‚ near Nizhny Novgorod where he was seen running and training with a ball but observers said he was still moving gingerly.

"We need to get the defence right, we need to be courageous when we have possession".

The two European countries will go head to head in the quarter-finals of the competition with the victor potentially facing either Russian Federation or Croatia in the semi-finals. "That will hurt them the most".

"I think on our behalf, we showed massive character to keep a cool head and not get sucked into their game".

"This is the way for us to have success and we're going to continue this way".

"If you want to achieve something, you have to fight for it every time", said Lukaku, who has impressed at the World Cup with four goals and is second in the Golden Boot race, behind England's Harry Kane with six. "Today we played against opponents that were stronger than we were".
