Portugal Are Out The World Cup After 2-1 Loss To Uruguay

Portugal are out of the World Cup following their match against Uruguay.

Portugal lost 2-1, after briefly equalising in the second half, however, it wasn't their day and they're now headed home.

Uruguay got off to a flying start, with Edinson Cavani scoring after just seven minutes, putting pressure on Ronaldo's side almost immediately.

Portugal would have to wait for the second half to equalise - with a goal in the 55th minute from Pepe. And we didn't have to wait too long for another goal, as Uruguay's Cavani scored a second goal just seven minutes later.

The loss means that Ronaldo and Messi have both left the competition on the same day, giving many fans a serious case of schadenfreude.

Messi's side were kicked out the World Cup following their loss to France earlier today; with many people speculating that it could be Messi's and Ronaldo's last ever World Cup.

Still, at least Ronaldo managed to, briefly, claim the talking point of this year's competition after his tremendous hat-trick against Spain.

And he managed to score a-not-too-shabby four games in the tournament. Messi on the other hand only managed one. England's Harry Kane has already scored five.

Naturally, England fans see both players being booted out on the same day as further proof that football is indeed coming home:

Now, Uruguay will take on France on Friday at 3pm. Who's your money on?
