    #1 Mbappe leads France rout of Argentina

    Kylian Mbappe starred as the Bleus sent Argentina packing with a 4-3 victory on Saturday. The 19-year-old was in sensational form at Kazan Arena becoming the first teenager to score more than one goal in a single game on the global stage since Pele in 1958. Strikes from Antonio Griezmann, Benjamin Pavard and the PSG forward's brace fired Didier Deschamps' charges to the last-eight at the expense of Lionel Messi-led Albiceleste

  • Edinson Cavani Matas Vecino Uruguay Portugal World Cup

    #2 Cavani subdues Ronaldo in Sochi

    Edinson Cavani's brace was enough to help Uruguay book a spot in the quarterfinal of the football fiesta after their 2-1 win over Portugal. The frontman's efforts in each half of the encounter overshadowed Cristiano Ronaldo's presence at the Fisht Olympic Stadium as Pepe scored the Selecao das Quinas' only goal. The defeat left the reigning European champions distraught after failing to make it past the round of 16 stage once more and  nowhere close to their fourth-place finish in Germany 2006.

    After settling for a 1-1 stalemate at the end of regular time, Russia captain Igor Akinfeev rose to the occasion for the hosts by saving Koke and Iago Aspas' penalties in the shoot-out to dump Spain out of the biggest football showpiece. Sergei Ignashevich's own goal opened the scoring for 2010 champions but Artem Dzyuba drew Stanislav Cherchesov's side levelled just before the half-time.
