Centurion Suarez strikes to send Uruguay and Russian Federation through

Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia Preview Can Suárez return to form against Group A minnows Giménez celebrates scoring Uruguay's winning goal against Egypt
| 21 June, 2018, 01:06

At least Suarez, who missed three sitters in Uruguay's 1-0 opening win against Egypt, was his vintage efficient self with his 52nd worldwide goal although he will not have dismissed fears he was not 100 percent fit.

"It was great. The main thing was that we won and advanced to the next round".

"All my players are available for all the matches", Pizzi said.

Saudi Arabia still smarting from their opening day 5-0 drubbing by Russian Federation could make wholesale changes as they desperately try to stay in the tournament. "There is still a game to go however and that is now what we have to think about".

Here's how to watch Saudi Arabia vs. Uruguay online.

"We played at the same level as them". This just goes to show that fans want good football, boring play styles and a lack of chances really don't go down well, so hopefully, there aren't too many games like this one moving forward!


The 31-year-old Suarez, whose previous two World Cups both ended in bans after his infamous 2010 handball against Ghana and bite on Italy's Giorgio Chiellini four years later, took advantage of a goalkeeping error by Mohammed Al-Owais to put Uruguay ahead midway through the first half. Anyway, he was off his game in the first match and Uruguay as a whole were so-so against Egypt, needing a late victor from Jose Gimenez to win by the single goal. The defeat means both they and Egypt are eliminated from the tournament after successive defeats.

Uruguay showed all their know-how and experience, though, as Atletico Madrid defensive pair Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin helped see out the closing moments easily.

Oscar Tabarez's side missed plenty of opportunities to add further goals, but a toothless Saudi outfit never seriously looked like snatching a point.

Taisir Al-Jassim limped out of the match in the 44th minute with what appeared to be a hamstring injury after over-stretching for a ball at the top of the box.

The Saudis tried one more push late but Mohamed Kanno's header off a corner was held easily by Muslera in the 90th minute.
