Uruguay have gone deep into the World Cup before, even with some of the same players, yet after four straight wins, it's clear there is something more to the group that Oscar Tabarez has brought to Russia.Uruguay earned their date with the star-filled French by ousting Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal 2-1 in the round of 16, the first true test of the tournament for Uruguay after La Celeste cruised through the group by dispatching Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Russia without allowing a goal.In defeating the reigning European champions, Uruguay reinforced their a team that's deeper than Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. Cavani's pairing with Suarez at the top of Uruguay's attack is critical in relieving pressure and countering with how much Uruguay are willing to play defense.
