Uruguay Vs. Saudi Arabia Live Stream

Saudi Arabia are now out of the World Cup having lost their first two games, with one more game against Egypt on the cards purely to see who finishes bottom of the group.

FC Barcelona superstar Luis Suarez scored the only goal of the game as Uruguay defeated Saudi Arabia 1-0 to advance to the 2018 World Cup round of 16.

The two-time world champions can book their place in the last 16 with victory, while defeat would see Saudi Arabia eliminated after their 5-0 opening thrashing by Russian Federation, while also knocking out Mohamed Salah's Egypt. He takes on the pressure and he lives with pressure all the time and that's a very distinctive feature of Luis.

"We do want to score more but there are other positives: no yellow cards, no injuries", Tabarez said. "Today was another demonstration that it is so hard to win a game in a World Cup", said man-of-the-match Suarez. It is set to face Luis Suarez's Uruguay on Wednesday before concluding group play next week against Egypt. All the teams out there are good we respect all of them.

With temperatures reaching 33 degrees Celsius, two-time world champions Uruguay and Saudi Arabia got off to a cautious start.

"The first game is over and nerves are easing a bit", the Juventus midfielder told reporters. While the Green Falcons created little in terms of genuine goal threat, they were surprisingly dominant in possession and had a better rate of pass completion than Uruguay, raising the question that maybe they weren't the worst team in this World Cup after all?

"I do fancy them in this tournament", said Neville.

"We have to fine-tune a few things, we have to work on a few aspects".

Pizzi denied reports that Saudi officials had vetoed four players from the starting lineup on Wednesday.
