Who would have thought that the two possibly best players in the Tournament would be going home at this early stage. Nobody would have forecast it.
But off they go and leave France and Uruguay to fight another day.
I watched both games France were easily the better team even though the final score was close. France's midfield overran Argentina. Pogba had a great game with some thrusting runs a searching passes. But the whole team excelled . As Messi walked of perhaps a new star was born in Mbappi. At his age he will have the World at has feet.
The other game was much closer with both teams sparring with each other until Uruguay broke through with a great goal scored by Cavani made by yer man Suarez laying it on.( One way or another he always leaves a mark !!!0 Portugal had to go for it but Ronaldo was blotted out by a tough Urugayan defence. The enivitable happened and Uruguay broke away and Cavani drilled home a second goal.
I think this Uruguay team will take some beating. Their defence is the best in the World and with two World class strikers they will give a fright to all the rest.
