Santos, though, also warned his side of the quality throughout the Uruguay ranks, from skipper Diego Godin at the back to Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez up front.

Uruguay vs. Portugal preview, players to watch, key stats
Back in 2006, they defeated Netherlands 1-0 in the so-called "Battle of Nuremberg" to progress to the World Cup quarterfinals. However, they have lost their last three games in the World Cup knockout stages (1 goal scored, 5 conceded).

Since 1966, only Grzegorz Lato & Andrzej Szarmach (five for Poland) and Michael Ballack and Miroslav Klose (five for Germany) have combined for more World Cup goals than Uruguay's Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez (4). Overall, Uruguay has looked like the far superior squad in this one.

Even though Portugal does not have the World Cup history that Uruguay has, Oscar Tabarez is quick to remind everyone that Portugal are the reigning European champions and that means they will come into the match with the experience garnered in winning a major title.

Meanwhile, Portugal head into this game after captain Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty in their last game, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by a resilient Iran side earlier this week.
