  • Lionel Messi has no escape from Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo said - in comments published in the Daily Mail - that Portugal, the European champions, had "played better than Uruguay".

The knockout round of the FIFAWorld Cup has only just begun but the tournament has already lost it's biggest stars as both Lionel Messi's Argentina and Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal were eliminated from the tournament on Saturday.

The fact that Ronaldo is a fitness freak and takes care of his body like no other athlete could render that 37-year-old inconsequential, but it will be a tall order for the Portugal captain to return to the World Cup stage in 2022.

Supreme Court Refuses Anti-Gay Florist’s Case - For Now
The federal government denied his petition for a writ of certiorari-a plea for the Supreme Court to take up his case-on Monday. As usual, the Supreme Court justices didn't say why they declined to take the case .

"I am sure that Portugal will continue to be one of the best teams in the world. We are aware of what you are referring to in terms of previous matches", FIFA's chief competitions and events officer Colin Smith said on Friday.

Given their ages - Messi is 31 and Ronaldo 33 - this could be the last the world sees of the pair, who have monopolised the world player of the year award for the last 10 years, on the biggest stage of all. But although both have made it to the final weekend in the past - Ronaldo having finished fourth in 2006, Messi second in 2014 - the last 16 was where their journey ended this time.

The Argentina captain only scored once in four matches at the finals and is still yet to score a World Cup goal in the knockout rounds.

France worldwide Mbappe stole the show with two goals and also won the opening penalty that Griezmann stuck away.

Prior to the World Cup, Ronaldo led Real Madrid to its third straight Champions League title, but he arrived in Russian Federation surrounded by distractions about his club future and a tax fraud accusation back in Madrid.

"There is a tournament in September and we hope Cristiano will be with us to help the players grow".
