    Cavani has been invisible the last few minutes. Doing nothing out there.

    Okay Cristiano, try passing the ball, you won't score from 40 yards in traffic.

    Cristiano Ronaldo has been more ineffectual in this game than Messi's been in any I've seen him play for Argentina recently. Other than shots that get predictably blocked by one of the Uruguayan defenders right in front of him, there's not been much.

    Portgual really missed a trick there in failing to get the ball upfield quicker after Godin was dispossessed in midfield.

    It has been a great day of matches as a neutral.

    That said, I would not complain to see Portugal cry if they go out

    Typical. Scores a couple of lucky goals and then disappears.

    Uruguay pretty much parked the bus after Cavani's second goal.

    What kind of stupid attempt is that? That's twice in 2 minutes for number 4.

    The early goal made a big difference in this game.

    Ironic that in this game Portugal have suffered for playing more on the front foot.

    The biter bit, I'd say, but with Suarez around that might be tempting fate.

    Uruguay are in a great situation, they have the bus firmly parked and the frustrated Portuguese are playing "hero-ball".

    I’m amazed Suarez is even able to walk upright without falling over all the time.

    No shame in that considering Portugal is trying to bring the house.
