So it’s time for Uruguay and Portugal. Suarez vs. Cristiano Ronaldo, plus the supporting casts. Uruguay have yet to concede a goal at the World Cup and have kept a clean sheet in six straight games in all competitions. Meanwhile, Cristiano can’t stop scoring. One of those has got to give.

The winner of this game
