Oscar Tabarez hints at plan to handle Ronaldo

Uruguay vs Portugal: Oscar Tabarez hints at plan to handle Cristiano Ronaldo

June 29, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
It will take more than a "one-man job"...

Head coach of La Celeste Oscar Tabarez is putting measures in place to deal with the efficiency of Cristiano Ronaldo in their upcoming Round of 16 clash. The 71-year-old’s side kept a clean sheet in their group stage matchups and are currently on a five-game run without conceding a single goal.

Nevertheless, there is a huge cause for concern coming up against Cristiano Ronaldo on Saturday. The 33-year-old forward has already scored four of Portugal’s five World Cup goals and is just one goal short of tying with the competiton’s top scorer Harry Kane.

As a result, Oscar Tabarez is aiming to task the whole Uruguay team with the responsibility of getting a grip on the Seleccao marksman having admitted that a single player cannot do the job.

“I believe that Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best strikers in the world,” he stated in his pre-match press conference.

“What Ronaldo has on top of all of these qualities is that he’s the leader of that team. That is an additional factor.

“There’s not a single player who can contain him. Not just Godin. We will have to work collectively in order to try and limit the effect that he can have.”
