Download Video: Uruguay vs France 0 – 2 (2018 World Cup) Highlights
Stuani replaces Cavani leading the line for Uruguay, other than that Tabarez names the same side that defeated Portugal in the last round. The defensive bedrock of Godin and Gimenez will look to thwart Mbappe and company in the final third.
Uruguay have been handed a hammer blow as Cavani has been deemed unfit to play this afternoon. The forward was forced off with an injury to his left calf after scoring the second of his strikes against Portugal. He did not train during the week and has not been named in the squad for the contest today.
