Portuguese defender Nuno Mendes showed a broken figure, leaving the field in tears after picking up an injury during their World Cup clash against Uruguay.
It is unclear what the nature of the left-back’s injury is, but he was visibly emotional when he walked off the field.
Raphael Guerreiro came on for Mendes in the 42nd minute.
It’s devastating news for the Paris Saint-Germain star, who suffered a hamstring injury before the tournament began.
He did not play in Portugal’s first game in Qatar, a 3-2 win over Ghana, but was rewarded with a starting spot against Uruguay.
Portugal largely controlled proceedings in the first half, however the best chance fell to Uruguay.
He arrived via a labyrinthine run through the heart of midfield and Rodrigo Bentancur’s defense has only Diogo Costa.
However, the Tottenham midfielder could only hit the Portugal goalkeeper directly.

But in the end it was Bruno Fernandes who broke the tie for Portugal, despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s claims, as the midfielder’s cross went into the net without touching.
Meanwhile, during the match, a pitch invader displayed various slogans on his jersey, including ‘Save Ukraine’ and ‘Respect Iranian women’, while brandishing a rainbow flag.
