Luis Suarez Starts Up Front With Edinson Cavani In Uruguay Game

Plane carrying Saudi Arabia's World Cup team catches fire before landing safely in Rostov

After finishing second in its World Cup qualification group, the actual tournament has been a major disappointment for Saudi Arabia with the worst goal differential at the event so far.

Uruguay and Russian Federation have both clinched a spot in the round of 16 of the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation on Wednesday thanks to the a 1-0 win over Saudi Arabia by La Celeste in their second group stage match.

Luis Suarez scored the only goal at the Rostov Arena, sweeping in from close range on his 100th worldwide appearance.

Luis Suarez netted the match's only goal in the 23rd minute in his 100th worldwide for Uruguay. "I was thinking that Saudi would win by two goals, and Uruguay would score one", he said.

Nasrah, who watched the game with her two sons, said: "I was really disappointed because we played good today and nothing less than a win should have been acceptable". That's not exactly the best preparation for a World Cup match against Uruguay.

Uruguay has now reached the second round in three straight World Cups under the 71-year-old Tabarez. "It's a attractive moment and we want to enjoy it", Suarez said.

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

Uruguay's victory means long-serving coach Tabarez has guided them out of the World Cup group stages in three successive tournaments.

"All we wanted to do was to win and qualify for the next round".

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

"We've done everything we could for the national team players", he thundered, before adding: "They've blackened my face".

Facing elimination, the Saudis fought hard for a goal with Hatan Bahmi getting several early chances.

- Saudi Arabia are appearing at their first World Cup finals since 2006. But they were outmatched by the Uruguayan defense and were under regular threat from Suarez and Cavani. Abdullah Otayf also makes a start.

Iran was also risky on the break, using the speed of its attacking players to threaten the Spanish back four but without creating many real chances.

A left-wing Sanchez corner was completely missed by Al Owais, giving Suarez a simple close-range finish into an unguarded net.
