Uruguay 0-2 France

Cavani, Cavani, Cavani…


WWhen attached a reason for a defeat in this match, Cavani gets the pole-position in pre-match analysis and then gets the 1st position in the post-match analysis.

  1. His influence out of this match made the Uruguayans permeable, and France capitalized on it and even when Matuidi was not on the field, the French found ways of impose their way of playing over the will of the South Americans that felt way too affected by Cavani’s absence – From beginning until the end.

      Friday’s courtesy goals of Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann with the “assist” of Muslera sent France through the semi-finals where they will be facing a not so less unexpected Belgium – St. Petersburg – Tuesday.

      Set-Pieces have been decisive once again and Griezmann seems to be interested in taking mostly part in it – this time instead of a penalty-kick he dropped the ball accurately into Varane’s head to make it 0-1 Les Bleus.

  2. Then 2-0 happened through a left footed humble shot by the assist man – Griezmann for an unfortunate mistake by Muslera – Uruguay did not lost any of their matches in 2018 up until this French moment. Those two delicious petit-gateaux were more than sufficient to satiate the appetite of the French towards their next aim – Semi-Final.

  3. While 1-0 up for France, Uruguay through Caceres almost leveled! But it wasn’t to be as Lloris made one of the most accomplishing saves of the tournament inspiring Les Bleus to go forward harder and tougher against a weakened Uruguay that were a ghost of the performing nation that knocked out Portugal to which Cavani could only be part of the explanation.
