Hope Uruguay win simply because they've always had a decent team and the likes of Suarez, Godin and Cavani probably won't be back at the next tournament.

Very disappointing if we lose.

We'll probably go back to the initial formation with Ronaldo and Guedes up front. We've looked a bit shaky at the back so I'm worried about what Suarez and Cavani can do to us. Santos better have a look at that.

Need Ronaldo top scorer so hope he finally delivers and can progress further to score more.

Portugal should win, but Uruguay can never be ruled out in a World Cup game. They are always spirited, have an annoying style for anyone and have excellent footballers.

Blessing these two sides drew each other. Hope Uruguay go through as Portugal have no excuse to play the football they do given the vass amount of talent they have.

Portugal have hardly been terribly negative, they've just been very reliant on Ronaldo. Uruguay are a well drilled but pretty dire to watch, no preference on this one.

This will be a tight match. I don't expect to see a goal fest.

0-1 for us.

Any way the mods can shrink the size of that emoticon? Getting a bit annoying now

I think this'll be quite a dull game tbh. Uruguay aren't that positive and neither are Portugal. I'm standing by my wanting Portugal & Ronaldo to have a historic world cup - but I think this will be a very tough match for them. On paper, I think Uruguay is better. Unfortunate for Portugal to draw with Iran because of that penalty that after going back to and being less biased about it... shouldn't have been a penalty at all and lose the top spot in the group to a Spain side that were a bit poo in all honesty. Makes their whole tournament much harder.

Whichever side wins, I suspect it'll have something to do with one of Ronaldo, Suarez or Cavani.

many have said that portugal is over reliant on ronaldo, this year he has delivered.    that game against iran i see him as being cautious of being injured i hope he'll go all out tomorrow.     but portugal will have a big problem if uruguay decides to play with much tempo, they have players that are capable of that and i'm always wary of the vampire suarez's skills.

I´m curious to see who will have take the initiative in this match. Two small countries who have quality players in their attack, and are known for their pragmatic approach.

I heard something that made a lot of sense to me: Portugal is the Uruguay of Europe, Uruguay is the Portugal of South America. 

I have zero idea of what to expect from that one. Hoping for a nice match.

I expect a 1-0 with a late winner, maybe even extra time late winner. Either that or it goes to the penalty shoot-out.

If Bernardo and Guedes play up to their level of talent, something that unfortunately hasn´t happened so far in this World Cup, I think you´ll dominate the match and end up winning it. Otherwise, it´s an open and unpredictable match.

William is in doubt for the match. With Danilo not coming to the WC, I expect Adrien to take the defensive midfielder place. 

My XI would be:

GK - Patrício

RB - Cédric 

CB - Pepe

CB - Fonte

LB - Raphael

DM - Adrien

CM - Moutinho

CM - Bruno Fernandes

AM - Bernardo Silva

FW - Guedes

FW - Ronaldo

4-4-2, with Bernardo behind both Guedes and Cristiano. It will help us defend better, which we'll need to do against this Uruguayan attack, and support the attack properly.

Really hope they fuck Uruguay over. I want to taste Suarez’s tears at the final whistle. 1-0 Portugal.

This game will be the example of two estate agents meeting at a property up for sale without any clients being present. They’ll both speculate and for me the answer will be in who specualtes best. On paper the game will be very tactical with wary football.

The thing is that both teams have plenty of talent at their disposal to provide an amazing game for the neutral.

I think Uruguay is a way more balanced team. I expect the uruguayans to go through, although I side with Portugal.

Finally Cedric benched! Being useless for three games was too much.
