Argentina, Portugal eliminated from FIFA World Cup

World Cup roars into knockout phase World Cup roars into knockout phase

For the second game running, it was a Paris Saint-Germain who was the matchwinner, Edinson Cavani bagging a devastating double either side of a Pepe equaliser to ensure both five-time Ballon d'Or winners were eliminated from the showpiece at the same stage.

Real Madrid forward Ronaldo, a European champion with Portugal two years ago, will be 37 by the time the next global showpiece rolls around - meaning it is unlikely he will improve on a run to the semi-finals in 2006.

Russian Federation are hoping for a World Cup miracle on Sunday as the host nation take on 2010 winners Spain for a place in the quarter-finals after Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi exited the tournament.

Messi's Argentina, however, were unable to quell a rampant France side who had finally found their feet at the World Cup and could only watch as Kylian Mbappe scored two goals in an eventual 4-3 thriller of a win.

Bitter loss to Germany made Sweden 'stronger,' coach says
Low was a prisoner of his own success as he kept faith in a set of players who have done the job for him over the years. South Korea unfortunately were knocked out despite recording one of the biggest shocks in tournament history.

The loss meant that Messi has never been able to score in the knockout phase of a World Cup.

Ronaldo will be almost 38 by the time the next World Cup comes around in Qatar in 2022. The Barcelona star is heating up, scoring his first goal of the 2018 World Cup against Nigeria in his squad's last match.

Goalkeeping great Peter Schmeichel, who is an RT World Cup guest host, says both players looked jaded judging by their performances in the last 16 - and raised doubts over whether fans would ever see the pair on football's biggest stage again. "Happy for what happened today, I hope we can go further", Cavani said.

His tally is one behind the tournament's current leading scorer Harry Kane, with Ronaldo also missing a penalty in the 1-1 draw with Iran.

The FDA Approves the First Cannabis-Based Medicine
Only products that have received formal FDA approval can make such claims, typically requiring clinical trials costing millions. The US regulator said that Epidiolex is also the first approved drug for the treatment of patients with Dravet syndrome.

Sergio Aguero gave Argentina late hope but they ran out of time and head home after a rollercoaster ride in Russian Federation that ultimately ends in bitter disappointment for the two-time former champions.

Portugal will take part in the inaugural Uefa Nations League later this year, beginning against Italy in September.

"Certainly, yes, Cristiano still has a lot to give to football". "We have many young players and it is important to have our captain there".
