SOCHI, Russia (Reuters) - Portugal made three changes to their line-up for Saturday’s World Cup last-16 game against Uruguay, with Bernardo, Goncalo Guedes and Ricardo Pereira all starting for the European champions.

Andre Silva, Ricardo Quaresma and Cedric Soares drop out.

Uruguay made one change from their last game, a 3-0 win over hosts Russia, with Jose Gimenez coming in at the back to replace Sebastian Coates.

The winners will play France on Friday. The French defeated Argentina 4-3 earlier on Saturday.
