Match Facts & Stats

  • Uruguay and France have met six times prior to Friday's game
  • Les Bleus, however, have yet to beat La Celeste, with four losses and two draws so far
  • Uruguay are in the quarter-finals for the first time since the 2010 edition (when they finished in fourth place)
  • France are in the quarter-finals for the second straight tournament

Preview

Both France and Uruguay made sure that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will have to follow the rest of the World Cup from their couches. Led by youngster Kylian Mbappe's brace, Les Bleus defeated Argentina in a seven-goal thriller and now are just three games away from lifting their first World Cup since 1998.

Meanwhile, Uruguay, who navigated through their group stage campaign without conceding a goal, ended Portugal's hopes of progressing in this tournament, and Cristiano Ronaldo's chances at winning the coveted Golden Boot. Edinson Cavani's well-taken brace was enough to earn them their first quarter-finals berth since earning fourth spot at the 2010 edition in South Africa but is a major doubt to feature after limping off during his team's victory last weekend.

Given that he's scored three of Uruguay's seven goals so far, it goes without saying that this will be a serious cause of concern for manager Oscar Tabarez. France, on the other hand, should have everyone available, with defensive duo Benjamin Mendy and Djibril Sidibe expected to return to the fold after shaking off minor injuries.

Much of the focus of this tournament has been on other South American sides - such as Argentina and Brazil - which has allowed Uruguay to proceed thus far without much fuss. However, given that they are also just three games away from lifting the coveted title, there are plenty of people starting to wonder if they, like Croatia, could be shaping up to be another "dark horse" contender this summer in Russia.

If France has been waiting 20 years to win a World Cup, well, Uruguay's wait has been a lifetime longer. La Celeste last clinched the title in 1950 - well before the vast majority of fans tuning in to Friday's clash were even born.
