Uruguay v Saudi Arabia, Group A

Uruguay v Saudi Arabia, Group A

That strike was Suarez's sixth World Cup goal and made him the first Uruguayan to score in three separate finals. The journey of Saudi Arabia and Egypt will stop in the League Cup in the World Cup.

"All the matches are different and tactical plans are also differ depending on your opponent", Pizzi said. "We only have one thing in mind".

In Group B, Spain was a 1-0 victor over Iran in Kazan, thanks to a goal by Diego Costa.

Both Spain and Portugal have four points in Group B following their 3-3 draw and subsequent 1-0 victories.

Uruguay will face hosts Russian Federation in their group finale with top spot in Group A on the line.


Sanchez and Suarez wasted half-chances to extend the lead for Uruguay, who also won their opener against Egypt 1-0 thanks to a set-piece goal, defender Jose Gimenez heading home a late victor. "Each and every player aims at changing the image that we have conveyed because it is not the true image of Saudi football". "Undoubtedly there were other factors aside from the pressure of playing in the opening game that made a difference, but it's true that the difference was enormous". But when they see us win they run out of the house and hug the first person they find.

One reason why you shouldn't trust a group table during World Cups is because it often paints a wrong picture.

"It's not about being young or experienced it's due to the needs of the team for this game, and according to my information this is the line-up which will best suit us", Tabarez told a news conference on Tuesday. "That is a cardinal rule for us". Saudis were unable to get real chances, let alone a goal in their first two matches.

Oscar Tabarez's side missed plenty of opportunities to add further goals, but a toothless Saudi Arabia outfit never seriously looked like snatching a point. The powerful striker turned in the area and took a shot but the ball deflected off Ramin Rezeian before bouncing back onto Costa's knee and into the net.

"His sense of responsibility is remarkable", Tabarez said of Suarez.

"It's spectacular, we are more than proud that Uruguay has [played] three consecutive World Cups qualifying for the round of 16", he said. Abdullah Otayf also makes a start. In the match played in the Rostov Arena, Suarez scored this goal in the corner of Carlos Sanchez's corner.

"We have to offer them the tools so on bad days they can overcome that".

Luis Suarez won his 100th cap for Uruguay, starting up front with Edinson Cavani.
