Portugal qualified for the last-16 after an unconvincing group stage in which they tried to repeat the "solid defence and pace-on-the-break" strategy that won them the 2016 European Championships. Cavani switches the play with a lovely diagonal pass, which Suarez takes down.
Ronaldo did take defenders away from Pepe, allowing the defender to head in a 55th-minute equaliser, but this was a night when nobody else was able to come to the party and ease the creative burden on the Real Madrid superstar.
"It's exciting. there are no words to describe this". Before he gave Ricardo Pereira any chance to close him down, Cavani placed a clinical first-time strike back across the goal and into the back of the net. He was helped to the sideline with his arm around Ronaldo's back.
"Our next game is in five days which is not a lot of time, but after today we will rest".

Ronaldo was lifted. Portugal grew. Ronaldo ran in front of Pepe and drew the attention of both Gimenez and Godin.
Parity was short-lived, though, as Uruguay reclaimed the lead just seven minutes later.
EARLY GOAL It was a five-pass build-up from deep in its own end that culminated in Uruguay's first goal, and the final two passes were ideal. Suarez makes a brilliant cross from the left for Cavani to head the ball past the goalkeeper.
Cavani applied a fine finish to Rodrigo Bentancur's pass in the second half to seal the win.
Coach Oscar Tabarez revealed he used a picture of the towering header to inspire his players in his halftime team talk in their first game in this World Cup against Egypt, where they snatched victory with Jose Gimenez's late header from a corner.
And the Uruguayans hold their opponents in equally high regard, conscious that Ronaldo is supported by younger talents like Bernardo Silva and Goncalo Guedes.
And as he limped off the pitch, he was given a helping hand courtesy of Portugal's captain. Ronaldo himself and knockout matches, plus Uruguay.
