Pepe headed Portugal level in the 55th minute, the first goal Uruguay have conceded in the tournament. It was two weeks ago that Ronaldo scored a hat trick in the same stadium against Spain, stroking his chin after the first goal to imply he was the "greatest of all time". That means he has 85 global goals, more than any other male European player in history.
His shadows were Uruguay defenders Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez, who know Ronaldo quite well from their clashes between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in the Spanish league.
"Godín is a star. Even if he scores three goals, he has a team working for him". The French defeated Argentina 4-3 earlier on Saturday.
Portugal finished second in Group B after a thrilling draw with Spain, a slim victory over Morocco and a draw with Iran. That, and the VAR-awarded late spot-kick for the Iranians, condemned the defending European champions to this tie rather than a meeting with the hosts in Moscow.

For her second trip to the border to visit the border since the family separation crisis, Melania Trump has gone back to basics. Anticipating a trip to Phoenix , protesters also gathered outside the Southwest Key facility in the city's west side.
Since the format of the World Cup changed in 1986 to include a round of 16, Uruguay have been eliminated on three of the four occasions they've reached that stage, losing in 1986, 1990 and 2014, but progressing in 2010 against South Korea.
This is a side with excellent, Italian-based midfielders in Rodrigo Bentancur, Lucas Torreira and Matias Vecino. The Uruguayans will look towards their attacking duo of Edison Cavani and Luis Suarez to provide their firepower, while Diego Godin leads from the back.
Suarez might lack the same sharpness of old, but he has still scored twice in Russian Federation. Be it biting the players in frustration or pushing away the goal-bound balls with his hand, the Uruguayan striker is notorious for his non-footballing activities on the pitch.
85 - And a Portugal sub in, Manuel Fernandes replaces Joao Mario. It has been like that for the whole of 2018.
