Uruguay Miss Cavani As France Enter Semis

In a cagey World Cup quarterfinal encounter, France advanced 2-0 at the expense of Uruguay.

It was a very tight affair with plenty of fouls from both sides all around the park.

Griezmann was the hero for France, setting up the first goal for Varane and scoring the second himself.

But Uruguay really missed the injured Cavani, their 2-goal hero from the Round of 16 victory over Portugal.

While he couldn’t do much about the opening goal, Uruguay keeper Muslera fumbled with the second, killing any hopes Uruguay had.

At the other post, Hugo Lloris was brilliant for France and made some spectacular saves to deny the South Americans.

After going 2-0 up, France were irrepressible, passing the ball around and playing the Uruguayans out of the park.

The 1998 champions are looking very good at the moment. But they'll face a stiff test in the semis against the winner of Brazil vs Belgium.
