Cristiano Ronaldo is '50% of Portugal', says Diego Forlan

Cristiano Ronaldo is '50% of Portugal', says Diego Forlan

Skipper Ronaldo has netted four times in Russian Federation, including a hat-trick in his side's opening game against Spain.

Following a corner, Ronaldo rose up, but it was the unmarked Pepe, 35, who sent home the header from behind, as the oldest Portugal player to score at a World Cup and for the first time here in Russian Federation to strike a ball into the net of Uruguay. And when Uruguay got its chance to counter, it was deadly with the combo of Suarez and Cavani. Argentina are looking to put their tricky World Cup start behind them against 1998 winners France in the last 16.

The two goals scored by Edinson Cavani knocked out Portugal.

Ronaldo's 24-year-old model girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez attended the Round of 16 game, where Portugal lost to Uruguay 1-2 and were ousted from the World Cup. "We'll have to wait day by day to see how he feels".

County Fire Burns Over 32,000 Acres in Just Over 24 Hours
Red Flag fire conditions didn't help more than 1,000 firefighters battling the 32,500-acre County Fire in Yolo County Sunday. More than 147,000 acres have already been scorched in the fires now burning across Colorado.


Pepe headed Portugal level in the 55th minute, the first goal Uruguay have conceded in the tournament.

"We're going out with heads held high and the Portugal team will continue to win things".

Deschamps, a member of the France squad that won the 1998 World Cup with a solid back-four and a steely midifield, was not bothered.

Russian Federation 2018 was the 33-year-old's third World Cup and it's unlikely he will be available for Qatar four years time.

Trump revokes Obama policy using race in school admissions
Sessions issued a memo barring Justice Department components from using guidance documents to circumvent the rulemaking process. The Trump administration chose to take down these guidances at this moment when there haven't been any changes in the law.


Uruguay will seek to summon up all their famous defensive spirit in Friday's quarter-final against France to shackle the Europeans' lighting-fast teenage top-scorer Kylian Mbappe. "I'm sure that the national team will remain as one of the best in the world".

If Cavani doesn't recover in time, coach Oscar Tabarez could replace him with Cristhian Stuani. "You need to really concentrate to make sure he is not successful against you, but that is very hard". Obviously I'm very happy for (Cavani's) goals and that they helped us win.

"About Cavani, we don't know, we're just waiting for a few days", Suarez said. "We already have a new competition in September (UEFA Nations League) and obviously we want Cristiano to be with us".

'Girl from the Bronx' Ocasio-Cortez called out in fact check
Soon afterward, Cardillo admitted flubbing Ocasio-Cortez's alma mater but added, "that said, you're not a girl from the Bronx ". She said it was "exhausting just running in the Bronx and Queens" and she can't imagine how national candidates do it.
