Things to watch out for
- This will be the last World Cup for some global football stars. Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal and Uruguay’s Edinson Cavani will probably play the FIFA World Cup for one last time, with one last shot at the ultimate glory. They will put in their level best to lift the trophy this time.
- Joao Cancelo is a defender who is counted as one of the top five defenders in the world at the moment. His performances at the club level in the premier league have been remarkable. He is one of the only defenders in the world who poses a threat while attacking. Uruguay must be careful when he gets the ball.
- Uruguay midfielder Federico Valverde is in the form of his life right now. He is scoring goals at will for his club Real Madrid. He helped them lift the Champions League and the LaLiga this year. He will be the player to watch out for in this heavyweight clash.
