Edinson Cavani is hopeful he will be fit in time to face France in the World Cup quarter-finals despite coming off hurt in Saturday's victory over Portugal.
The PSG striker scored both his side's goals in the 2-1 victory in Sochi in their last-16 tie, before hobbling off with a calf problem.
"I just felt something at one point and couldn't recover. I hope [to be fit], I'll do everything to make sure I can take to the field with my team-mates," Cavani told journalists after the game.
"It hurts a little bit, but we will see how it looks tomorrow."
Uruguay are due to play France in the last eight on Friday in Nizhny, and coach Oscar Tabarez said he was "worried" for Cavani.
He had to be helped off the pitch by Portugal skipper Cristiano Ronaldo and was replaced by Cristhian Stuani in the 74th minute of the game at the Fisht Stadium.
"Our next game is in five days which is not a lot of time, but after today we will rest. Obviously we are worried but we don't know exactly what the problem is," Tabarez said.
