Portugal make three changes to the side that drew 1-1 with Iran, dropping Quaresma, Cedric and Andre Silva. Their spots in the line-up are taken by Pereira, Bernardo Silva and Guedes. Ronaldo, on a yellow card, will miss the quarter-final if he is booked this evening and his nation advance.
Uruguay make just one change from the side that defeated Russia in their final group match as Gimenez returns to the heart of defence alongside Atletico Madrid team-mate Godin. Coates is the man that drops to the bench, while Torreira will be in for a tough test protecting the back-line.
