World Cup: France Knocks Uruguay Out, Wins 2:0

Uruguay was today knocked out of the World Cup after losing 0:2 to France. In a match that France was the overall better side, Varane nodded in the first goal for France in the 40th minute, while Antoine Griezman shot in the second in the 61st minute.

France coach, Didier Deschamps said after the match “I think we deserved the result, we played against a beautiful Uruguayan side but we were better than they were today. I have a younger team, and they’ve already played as a team before, but today’s requirements were even higher because the opponents become better as you progress.

“I like to reach my goals like everybody else but I don’t look at this from a personal perspective. My pride is related to the entire group and here I want to mention my technical staff who help me day in day out. I’m not doing this for myself, I’m there for the team.”

Uruguay coach, Oscar Tabarez on his part tried to sound as positive as possible. He said “For a country like Uruguay, you feel [bad about the defeat], with our history, of course you do. But now we need to move on. There are many countries who belong to the footballing elite who left this tournament much earlier.

“Only those that don’t do anything, don’t make mistakes. I told all my players after the match that they can be very proud, keep their heads high. I don’t have anything bad to say against them. We all saw that it was not a very common goal, but Muslera has been a very important pillar in all our work up until now.”

France will now take on the winner between Brazil and Belgium on the 10th of July in the semi-finals.
