In planning the match, focusing on our opponent and considering the level that every player has, what Ronaldo has on top of all of these qualities is that he is the leader of that team.
In the U.S., Uruguay vs. Portugal aired live on Fox and was live-streamed, along with the rest of the World Cup, on fuboTV (sign up for a free seven-day trial). "And everybody will try and give their utmost tomorrow as to prevail". Uruguay have been compared to Atletico Madrid throughout the tournament and with a stubborn defence led by the brilliant Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez, the similarities are obvious.
Earlier today, France outlasted Argentina, ending yet another attempt at World Cup glory by Lionel Messi.
Coming to Uruguay, before their 3-0 win over Russian Federation, the talk in the Uruguayan press was that the side may have beaten Egypt 1-0 and Saudi Arabia 1-0 but they were hardly very impressive.
Veteran coach Oscar Tabarez is at his third World Cup in his current stint with Uruguay. But he also admitted it'll be a group effort trying to slow down Portugal's star. The world record is held by Iran's Ali Daei, who scored 109; if Ronaldo continues for another four years, that tally might not be beyond him.
However, Ronaldo and the reigning European champions hit a Uruguayan roadblock at Fisht Stadium. That is an additional factor.
Godin, battle-hardened after years of working under Atletico coach Diego Simeone, has always been unapologetic about his country's uncompromising style.
On several occasions the Real Madrid goalscorer was shown inside, giving him the brief illusion of an opening for a shot, only for one of the two Atleti defenders to appear and either take the ball away from him or close the shooting angle and block the ball.

"I have to repeat it time and time again", Santos said.
Uruguay were ahead as early as the seventh minute when Cavani and Luis Suarez exchanged passes from one end of the pitch to the other.
But Santos reiterated that not even Ronaldo can solve things by himself.
"Above and beyond the importance of the match - what it means to win or lose - I think we have a certain calmness and serenity in terms of facing it".
Uruguay performed well in their group matches.
But Uruguay responded nearly instantly.
"I don't make comments on individual players at all", Tabarez said.
