Portugal vs Uruguay live: World Cup score, highlights, result from 2022 Group H match as Ronaldo starts

Portugal can officially qualify for the Round of 16 if they can defeat Uruguay in a matchup of Group H favorites. 

Fernando Santos’ side held on to defeat Ghana 3-2 in one of the more entertaining group openers, and another three points would see them through to the next round and in pole position to win the group.

Meanwhile, Uruguay were held to a dour 0-0 draw against South Korea and will be desperate to jumpstart their attack led by Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez, and former Anfield star Luis Suarez. But the forward duo didn’t get much in the way of service against South Korea.

Portugal have plenty of attacking flair and showed it off against Ghana, with Cristiano Ronaldo becoming the first player to score in five World Cup tournaments. They’ll be challenged by Uruguay’s stingy defenders but would love nothing more than to dish out some payback for the Round of 16 elimination suffered at the hands of La Celeste four years ago.

Portugal vs Uruguay live updates, highlights from 2022 World Cup

11 mins: A first chance for Darwin Nunez to stretch his legs, three defenders occupied by the Liverpool forward, who wins a corner down the left. Jose Maria Gimenez rises highest to meet it, but the ball loops on to the top of the net.

7 mins: Nice crossfield ball from Nuno Mendes finds Ronaldo on the right, and an impeccable climb brings a knockdown for Bruno Fernandes, who drags a shot wide from 25m.

6 mins: Uruguay concede three free-kicks in just over a minute, the last, for a Rodrigo Bentacur foul on Ruben Dias, bringing an early yellow card.

3 mins: Mathías Olivera with the first sight of goal, the Uruguay wing-back playing the ball into Edinson Cavani and accepting the return pass only to lash over from the edge of the area.

4 mins: Still got it! Ronaldo produces a remarkable layoff with his shoulder to William Carvalho just inside the penalty area, but the Portugal midfielder cannot keep his volley down.

KICKOFF: Darwin Nunez gets us off and running, and Uruguay will have the ball to start with.

3 mins to kickoff: What a setting for this one!

5 mins to kickoff: The teams emerge on to the pitch, and it’s time for the last of the pre-match formalities.

10 mins to kickoff: Something has to give tonight. While Portugal have lost only one of their last 13 group games at the World Cup (W7 D5), Uruguay have kept five successive clean sheets in the group stage; no one has ever managed six in a row.

A worrying omen for Portugal, who have won just one of their last nine meetings with South American nations in all competitions (D3 L5), beating Argentina 1-0 in a friendly in November 2014.

15 mins to kickoff: All eyes on Portugal’s main man as ever.

(US only)

20 mins to kickoff: Portugal’s sole win against Uruguay is a 3-0 friendly success in a warmup for the 1966 World Cup, Jose Augusto Torres hitting a hattrick in Basel.

25 mins to kickoff: The Uruguay warmup is in full swing:

30 mins: This is only the third meeting between the sides, their 2-18 last=16 tie their first fixture since 1972. Uruguay came out on top four years ago, Edinson Cavani’s double either side of a Pepe equaliser taking them into the quarter-finals.

35 mins: Portugal fans settling into Lusail Stadium and making themselves at home:

45 mins from kickoff: You might say there’s a relaxed mood among the Uruguay squad!

50 mins from kickoff: Three changes apiece tonight, with Pepe and Nuno Mendes starting in defence for Portugal and William Carvalho coming into midfield.

Sebastian Coates comes into the Uruguay defence, which is now a back three, while Edinson Cavani starts up front in preference to Luis Suarez.

3 hrs 15 mins from kickoff: Beyond what he can do at this World Cup, the attention around Cristiano Ronaldo is intense given we don’t know which team he is going to join next after his Manchester United contract was terminated.

4 hrs 45 mins from kickoff: In case you think they’ve forgotten about that 2018 Round of 16 elimination in Portugal, here’s the front cover of Portuguese sports daily Record: “We have a score to settle.”

5 hrs from kickoff: This will be just the fourth time these nations have met with the last encounter coming in the 2018 World Cup Round of 16 match won by Uruguay 2-1 with two goals by Edinson Cavani. La Celeste advanced and lost to eventual champions France in the quarters, a match that scoring hero Cavani missed through injury.

Portugal vs Uruguay lineups, team news

Portugal central defender Danilo Pereira, who started and played the full 90 minutes against Ghana alongside Ruben Dias, suffered a triple rib fracture during Saturday training. Reports are that he’ll be out for the group stage. His replacement is 39-year-old Pepe.

Playmaker Otavio, who started against South Korea, has been experiencing muscle issues that have prevented him from training normally with the team and William Carvalho replaces him in midfield, although Nuno Mendes is fit to start despite a similar problem. 

Portugal (4-2-3-1, right to left): 22-Diogo Costa (GK) — 20-Cancelo, 3-Pepe, 4-Dias, 19-Mendes — 14-Carvalho, 18-Neves — 10-B. Silva, 8-B. Fernandes, 11-Felix — 7-Ronaldo

There are no injuries to speak of for Uruguay, but coach Diego Alonso has modified his lineup from a four-man backline to a five-man setup with Sebastian Coates coming in as one of the three center-backs and two wing-backs (Guillermo Varela and Mathias Olivera). Edinson Cavani got the nod up front ahead of Luis Suarez.

Uruguay (3-5-2, right to left): 23-Rochet (GK) — 19-Coates, 3-Godin, 2-Gimenez — 13-Varela, 6-Bentancur, 15-Valverde, 5-Vecino, 16-Olivera — 11-Nunez, 21-Cavani
