The man who has marshaled the best defense in the World Cup so far will relish the task of trying to stop his old foe Cristiano Ronaldo when Uruguay and Portugal meet in Sochi Saturday.Godin is an expert at keeping clean sheets, as the leader of an Atletico defense that is the most formidable in the European club game – they kept 34 in all competitions last season – and of a Uruguay side that has not conceded a goal in 2018 in six games.Ronaldo, though, has already scored four times at this World Cup, including a hat-trick on his last visit here when Portugal drew 3-3 with Spain. Suarez might lack the same sharpness of old, but he has still scored twice in Russia. One more and he will equal 1950 World Cup-winner Oscar Miguez's Uruguayan record of eight goals at the tournament.
