GREETED PHOTO: Luis Suarez greets Cristiano Ronaldo at Halftime during Portugal vs Uruguay at 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Luiz Suarez greeted Ronaldo at half-time.

The striker has seven World Cup goals to his name, including a double against England, but he is better known for controversial contributions...

Not that it won't be interesting. Not that it won't be true. Not that the Uruguay star isn't more than deserving of a nice article as he passes the torch to the next generation in his final World Cup.

It's just, you already have decided what you think about Luis Suarez. You either think the forward is a hero, pointing to the dozens of goals he scored for Ajax, for Liverpool, for Barcelona and for his country, seven of which have come on the international game's grandest stage.

Or, you see him as the villain, recalling all the times he's gotten in hot water at the World Cup, whether it was the handball on the goal-line in 2010 against Ghana, the bite on Italy's Giorgio Chiellini in 2014 (or the other ones at club level), the faked head injuries in 2018 against Portugal – or whatever shenanigans he inevitably gets caught up in at Qatar 2022.

So, which is he? The brilliant scorer? The shameless instigator? Something in between?

"You'd like to be remembered more than anything as Uruguayan, the legacy left in the national team, for the history, for everything I did with the national team," Suarez told ESPN Brazil last year.

"At the world level, I have the fortune of being known for my track record, but the national team legacy is what makes me the most proud."

Uruguay coach Diego Alonso dropped striker Luis Suarez to the bench and brought forward Edinson Cavani into his starting 11 for Monday's World Cup Group H match against Portugal who also shuffled up their team.

After Uruguay's 0-0 draw with South Korea in their opening match of the tournament, Alonso also gave starts to defenders Sebastian Coates and Guillermo Varela in the place of attacking midfielder Facundo Pellistri and defender Martin Caceres.

Santos also moved to strengthen his midfield by bringing in William Carvalho to take the place of Otavio who was an injury concern in the build-up to Portugal's second match in Group H which they lead after beating Ghana 3-2 last week.

Teams

Portugal: Diogo Costa, Joao Cancelo, Pepe, Ruben Dias, Nuno Mendes, Ruben Neves, Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, William Carvalho, Joao Felix, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Uruguay: Sergio Rochet, Sebastian Coates, Diego Godin, Jose Maria Gimenez, Guillermo Varela, Mathias Olivera, Rodrigo Bentancur, Matias Vecino, Federico Valverde, Edinson Cavani, Darwin Nunez.
