Cavani struck in the seventh minute of Saturday's last-16 tie in Sochi to put Uruguay in control, but Portugal hit back after the interval when Pepe headed home Raphael Guerreiro's cross.
Portugal have progressed from the group stage of the World Cup for the fourth time in their history.
For the player of real Madrid FIFA world Cup in Russian Federation became the fourth in his career, he participated in the world Championships 2006, 2010 and 2014.
Although the World Cup in Russian Federation has lost its two most glittering names, some people might be relieved that the event would henceforth be more about teams than individuals.
"I'd like to congratulate Uruguay, who scored twice, but I'd also like to praise Portugal for what they did". The footballer refused to answer the question about the future of the coaching staff and players.
Ronaldo's great start in Russian Federation allowed him to surpass the combined total of three goals he had scored in his previous three World Cups.
Bentancur is not sure how serious the injury will prove to be, but he says Cavani was positive enough during a recovery training session with the team.
"But I think we have a really good defence to control him - but not just one player, the (whole) France team". During the run of play, Portugal rarely got any clear looks at goal.
They will next face France, who had earlier knocked out Lionel Messi's Argentina 4-3. We know that the squares have been full back home and that the people there were really rooting for us.
"This team will continue to be one of the best in the world, with quality players, a young group, united".
Uruguay's own impressive front line may be without Edinson Cavani, who suffered a calf injury after scoring two fabulous goals against Portugal in the last 16.
"I am confident and happy because this team will always fight with all their strength", he said.
"Uruguay is a south-American team very hard to play", Deschamps told French television program Telefoot on Sunday.
Edinson will be able to play in the quarterfinals of the 2018 world Cup with France on Friday, July 6, is not specified.
