The 2018 FIFA World so far has managed to give us one of the most unexpected results. The last weekend witnessed ousters of Argentina, Portugal and Spain. France enters the game after defeating Lionel Messi’s Argentina by 4-3 in the round of 16. Scoring a couple of goals, Edison Cavani walked away with the limelight while playing against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal and sealed the game by 2-1. Today on July 6, we shall witness two crucial games – first France vs Uruguay and second Brazil and Belgium. This will be the 8th time that the two teams will come head-to-head.
Out of the seven games, 4 ended up with a draw where Uruguay won a couple of them. The French footballers could walk away with a victory only once. The last time the two teams met each other was in 2013 for an international friendly. Let’s check out the head-to-head of the two teams on last 5 occasions.
Uruguay vs France, 2013
As mentioned above, the last time the two teams met each other was in 2013 for an international match at Estadio Centenario, Montevideo. In presence of 20,000 people, Oscar’s Tabarez’s men won the game by 1-0. It was Luis Suárez who scored one goal for Uruguay.
France vs Uruguay, 2012, 2010, 2008, 2002
All the matches between the 2002- 2012 between both matches ended up with a draw. The two teams locked horns with each other for a couple of FIFA World Cup matches and three international friendly games.
Coming back to today’s game, the big question remains if Cavani will play the match today or not owing to his calf injury. However, Uruguay has a very strong defence. All eyes will be set on France’s Kylian Mbappe. So overall, it’s going to be an interesting evening.
