Centurion Suarez strikes to send Uruguay and Russian Federation through

  • The Saudi Arabia national team arriving in Rostov on Don for their FIFA World Cup 2018 match

While Uruguay jumped to six points from two matches, the Saudis were eliminated with zero and are still waiting for their first World Cup win since U.S. 1994.

Luis Suarez of Uruguay celebrates after scoring his team's first goal during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group A match between Uruguay and Saudi Arabia at Rostov Arena on June 20, 2018 in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Egypt and Saudi Arabia have been eliminated.

The Saudi Arabia national team, now playing in the FIFA World Cup 2018, survived a scare after their plane caught fire mid-air. Overall, it is, of course, a disappointing World Cup for both nations but they will both be looking to finish on a high and, moving forward, will want to give their fans something to cheer about.

However, Woods failed to sustain his momentum in the next holes as he made a double-bogey at the par-4 1st to drop to plus-10. Open with an 81, and he provided the snapshot of a day that was entertaining for reasons the USGA didn't imagine.

Tabarez's preference for old hands Sanchez and Rodriguez, who play their football in Mexico and Uruguay respectively, may raise questions about the next generation of players in the squad, which is comprised of 10 players aged 30 or more, double the number that reached the semi-finals in 2010. The South Americans instantly had more strength and power down the flanks and created a string of chances before defender Jose Gimenez rose to head in an arching cross from a free kick from Sanchez to snatch all three points.

The last two World Cups have seen Suarez exit in ignominy. If Uruguay wins today then they move on and Saudi Arabia is out.

Juan Antonio Pizzi's Saudi Arabia continued to look far more assured on the ball than they did in the 5-0 drubbing by Russian Federation on the opening day of the tournament, with Hatan Bahbri firing a wild volley over shortly after seeing a long-range effort tipped away by Fernando Muslera. If the team starts clicking up front with Suarez and Edinson Cavani, watch out.

Edinson Carvani almost finished the deal in the 86th minute but Al Owais stopped his shot after a Saudi defender lost the ball at the edge of the box.
