France takes on Uruguay in the 2018 FIFA World Cup quarterfinals for the right to become the first semifinalist of the tournament on Friday. France enters the match in Moscow after winning its group and beating Lionel Messi and Argentina 4-3 in the round of 16, while Uruguay, also a group winner, rides into the match following a 2-1 win over Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal, conceding its first goal of the tournament.
France is healthy entering this contest, but there is a big question mark as to how it will look in attack. Against Uruguay's towering, strong central defenders, may we see Olivier Giroud to counter that height and provide some more ability in the air?
When it comes to Uruguay, the big question was whether Edinson Cavani would play. The star striker left the Portugal match due to a calf injury and his status was reportedly doubtful with a calf injury. And the team news for Uruguay shows him on the bench but not available to play. That means Cristhian Stuani starts up top. He scored 21 goals this past season at Girona.
