Quarter final: Portugal v Uruguay
Eurosport 2, 10am Sunday

France's last-16 exit has seen Uruguay promoted to Under-20 World Cup favourites and the South Americans will be aiming to show that tag is justified when they face Portugal in the quarter-finals.

Portugal had looked relatively poor until they eliminated hosts South Korea in the last 16 and their squad is still made up almost entirely of players who are yet to make the breakthrough at senior club level.

It's a different story for Uruguay, whose goalkeeper Santiago Mele is yet to concede a goal in the competition and this tournament is a major priority for a nation who take pride in making a big splash in youth football.

However, before steaming in against Portugal it is worth bearing in mind that Rodrigo Bentancur, who has racked up 50 league appearances for Boca Juniors' senior side to earn a move to Juventus, is unavailable.
