Ronaldo refuses to confirm retirement after Portugal exit

Uruguay won all three of their World Cup group games

"We need to fix many things in Argentinian football, but I prefer to do this from inside and not criticise from outside", he said. "Pele is another category, but it's good to be among these people".

This has been his best World Cup in terms of goals scored, as he leaves with four in total, including a hat-trick in a 3-3 draw with Spain in the group stage.

"We know what we would expect on Saturday but we have the weapons to defend well and to hurt them".

"That is why I don't want to talk about any other kind of analysis". I'm sad, I'm frustrated - I think that's quite normal.

While A Selecao will play Uruguay in the round of 16, Argentina will take on France, and if they both win, Portugal and Argentina will meet in the quarter-finals. Portugal's run for the World Cup came to a screeching halt, thanks to Luis Suarez, 31, Edison Cavani, 31, and the rest of La Celeste.

Portugal defender Pepe made Uruguay pay for sitting back when he leapt unmarked to head in a cross from Raphael Guerreiro after a short corner to level the match at 1-1 in the 55th minute.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker opened the scoring after just seven minutes in Sochi and, after Pepe headed Portugal level early in the second half, Cavani curled in a 62nd-minute victor.

Several players have promise, including 25-year-old Mauro Icardi, who scored 29 goals for Inter Milan last season but did not make the World Cup squad, and Angel Correa, a 23-year-old attacking midfielder at Atletico Madrid. "There is a tournament in September, the UEFA [Nations League], and we hope he will be with us to help the younger ones to grow", Santos told reporters. Ronaldo had an opportunity in the first half to score from a free kick about 30 metres out but could only hit the wall.

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

"He's a shining light for us all and we have to do our very best to all try to be at his level".
