Uruguay v Portugal is set to be one of the spiciest games of the World Cup

Prepare to see several b******* going toe-to-toe

Remember the Battle of Nuremberg in 2006?

Well get ready for the Battle of Fisht in 2018.

Of course, I am talking about the meeting of two of most dastardly sides in world football and neither of them are Argentina.

Back in Nuremberg Holland played Portugal in a match which set the record for the most cards shown in any FIFA tournament game.

There were four red cars shown and another 16 yellow cards as Russia referee Valentin Ivanov slightly lost control of the match discipline.

Well with the players on show in Uruguay v Portugal we could be in for another explosive game.

If Luis Suarez hasn’t bit Pepe by Half-time then I want my money back.

Uruguay have some of the best b******* in the game at both ends of the pitch.

Jose Gimenez has been under the wing of Diego Godin at Atletico Madrid all season, learning how to harangue and annoy opponents from the very best.

While Suarez has become notorious for basically ruining his own World Cups through sheer s***housery.

Martin Caceres also gets an honourable mention for his will to win.

The Portuguese team are led in the unsavoury stakes by chief protagonist Pepe but there’s plenty of others to help antagonise the opposition.

Cristiano Ronaldo is an unbelievable competitor, but as we saw against Iran that can see him bubble over sometimes – also known to go down pretty easily.

Jose Fonte is getting on a bit and has to use all his experience to get the upper hand on opponents these days.

While a midfield of William Carvahlo and Adrien Silva won’t be making many friends on the pitch.

Naughty naughty

So at one end of the pitch we are going to see Suarez against Pepe, a battle that is definitely going to be explosive.

Expect tumbles, big hits and lots of crying to the referee.

Whoever wins this battle could be the key to the game.

Meanwhile at the other end Gimenez and Godin are going to be doing their best to rile Ronaldo with all the naughty tricks in their locker.

It might not be one for the football purists, but it’s definitely going to get a bit spicy in the Fisht Stadium.
