  • Jorge Sampaoli explains touchline exchange with Lionel Messi over Aguero sub

"Now is not the time to talk about the future, either of the coach or the players", the Portugal skipper said after the game.

While some can not choose between the players, many have a preference towards one or the other, and the legendary Maldini, who is widely thought of as one of the game's best defenders ever, is no different.

"Despite his age, you still see him as young, in top form and decisive".

Messi- arguably world best- was shown the exit door from Russian Federation on Saturday following his team's 4-3 defeat by France.

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez believes there is a difference between his rivalry with Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo when it comes to global and club football.

Denmark are unbeaten for 18 games, a national record, their last defeat coming against Montenegro in October 2016 and have kept six clean sheets in their past seven games thanks to 'keeper Casper Schmeichel.

"He's very important to Uruguay..."

The attacking pair linked up perfectly for Uruguay's open, which saw Cavani send a sweeping cross-field ball to Suarez, before spring half the length of the pitch to turn the return ball home. "Ronaldo is very good people. They have never scored like that before", the 63-year-old said ruefully.

Messi's Argentina have shot at World Cup redemption
"He is a unique player, who unfortunately hasn't won the three finals he has played with Argentina and that isn't easy". The talismanic Argentine midfielder has so far failed to bring any trophies for the national team.

"But when you have someone like Pepe in the team, he pops up and scores goals, but he also makes stupid decisions in the game".

Cavani has scored three goals in Russian Federation but faces a race to be fit to feature against Les Bleus on July 6, with medical tests to determine to severity of the problem.

Former Denmark and Manchester United 'keeper Schmeichel said experienced Portuguese stopper Rui Patricio could have done better.

Ronaldo finished his World Cup campaign with four goals, one adrift of England's Harry Kane who leads the standings with five.

Luiz Felipe Scolari's charges reached the semi-final in 2006 whilst Ronaldo was still far from the complete player he is now, and in 2010 the team were eliminated in the last 16 by Spain.

"After that there was nothing in Portugal..."

Messi only scored once in Russian Federation and is still yet to net in the knockout stages of a World Cup.
