Uruguay forward Luis Suarez believes that his side can keep Kylian Mbappe quiet in their World Cup quarter-final clash against France on Friday.

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has insisted that his side can keep France forward Kylian Mbappe quiet when the two sides clash in the World Cup quarter-finals.

Mbappe has already scored three goals in the tournament so far as the 19-year-old leads his country's attacking line in Russia, despite only being called up to his international side in March last year.

France will play Suarez's Uruguay at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium on Friday, and the Barcelona player believes that his teammates will be able to control Mbappe in the game.

"Everybody knows he's a really good player, but I think we have a really good defence to control him," Suarez told reporters.

Suarez has scored twice in the World Cup so far, against Russia and Saudi Arabia.
