2022 FIFA World Cup Portugal vs Uruguay: Where To Watch, Live Streaming, Date, Timing, Squad, Lineups, Venue:

Portugal lock horns with old foes Uruguay in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Group H clash, in what will be a repeat of the 2018 Round of 16 tie. The Portuguese have a score to settle as the Uruguayans knocked them out, with Edinson Cavani scoring a timeless brace. Cristiano Ronaldo and co will be aiming to avenge their that defeat, which would also take them to the knockouts after they opened this campaign with a narrow 3-2 win over Ghana.

While a win may tell Portugal has had a brilliant start to the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the score tells a different story. It could well have been a scoreline of 3-3, had Inaki Williams scored from an opportunity he created by himself after stealing the ball from Portuguese ‘keeper Diogo Costa. A soft penalty helped Portugal take the lead, which was cut by Ghana just minutes later, who also scored in the dying minutes to make the match interesting. Luck was clearly on Portugal’s side, who will need more than that if they are to beat the South Americans in this fixture.

Meanwhile, Uruguay are desperate for their first win and first goal at this tournament, after their 0-0 draw against South Korea in the opener. The Uruguayans did come close to open the scoring and snatching all three points with Fede Valverde and Diego Godin hitting the woodwork with their efforts. Luis Suarez had a quiet night against the Koreans, with no shots offered by the striker, so did his replacement Edinson Cavani.

However, Darwin Nunez did look like a livewire and was threat throughout the 90 minutes of his World Cup debut. But if Uruguay are to progress through to the knockouts from this tough lot of Portugal, Ghana and South Korea, they need a win here. A draw would then leave on two points and praying for the other results to go their way. The two-time world champions do possess a lot of experience in their squad to tackle such situations and go deep in the tournament.
