Luis Suárez sends Uruguay through with victory over Saudi Arabia

Plane carrying Saudi Arabian team en route to next World Cup match catches fire mid air

Louis Suarez made his 100th global match a memorable round here, where Uruguay defeated Saudi Arabia 1-0 and made it to the last 16 of the World Cup 2018.

The result means hosts Russian Federation, who also won their two opening Group A games, will join Uruguay in the last 16, while pointless Egypt and Saudi Arabia make an early exit.

It made Suarez the first Uruguayan player to score in three different World Cups as he sealed legendary status for his country.

Saudi Arabia are looking toward the Asian Cup with hope after they showed signs of progress in their 1-0 defeat to Uruguay as they exited the World Cup on Wednesday.

Depending on the result of their last group game against Russia, Uruguay will take on either Spain, Portugal or Iran, who are still on course in Group B for a place in the quarter-finals.

Uruguay are through to the knockout rounds of the 2018 FIFA World Cup inside a week of the tournament's commencement; by the looks of it, things should be going swimmingly for the Rio de la Plata giants. Salah gives this team a slight edge and that should be the difference as they earn the win.

Uruguay play Saudi Arabia in a Group A match in Rostov-on-Don on Wednesday.

The Sky Blue should have beaten Egypt by a wider margin than they did but Luis Suarez could not finish multiple chances.

"I think there is agreement that (Suarez) did not have his best game against Egypt, but players are not programmable robots".

"I think Uruguay were happy to win 1-0 today, but I think they will improve".

Bizarrely, two-time World Cup champions Uruguay have never beaten the "Green Falcons"; Saudi Arabia won a friendly in 2002 while a 2014 friendly ended in a draw.

Suarez scored the important goal of the match in the 23rd minute of the game, which proved to be the final breakthrough.

"It's a further demonstration of how complicated it is to win a World Cup match, and World Cups are like that".

Saudi Arabia also had to play most of the match without trusted midfielder Taisser Aljassam, who limped off before halftime with an injury after lunging forward for a challenge.

Safah was less complimentary and said that the Saudi players had let their fans down, adding: "They seemed scared whenever they attempted to score any goals".

Uruguay next will be up against Saudi Arabia in the Group A encounter.
