Edinson Cavani inspired Uruguay to a 2-1 win over Portugal in their round of 16 World Cup tie on Saturday with two fantastic strikes. Cavani set the South Americans on their way when he headed home early, only for Pepe to equalize, also with a header shortly after half time. Cavani then scored the winner with just under half hour to play to seal the win and get his team into the quarter finals.
