KXIP vs KKR Live Score

"None of the games at the World Cup are easy to win", Suarez said. It won't happen. Uruguay didn't play as well as many hoped they would on Gameday 1, and the team likely will recover its form against an apparently hapless Saudi Arabia.

Suarez becomes the first Uruguayan to score in three World Cups and coach Tabarez admits he is vital to the national team.

Luis Suarez marked his 100th worldwide cap by sending Uruguay into the last 16 of the World Cup as the striker benefited from some poor goalkeeping to eliminate Saudi Arabia with a 1-0 win on Wednesday.

Uruguay's result also means hosts Russian Federation, who have won their opening two Group A matches, are through to the next phase with one fixture to spare, while Egypt and Saudi Arabia are both out of the tournament.

In a game lacking in chances and intensity, the only goal came from a Uruguay corner - the Saudi goalkeeper Al Owais came for the cross but misjudged it completely and Suarez was waiting at the back post to finish into the empty net.

Saudi Arabia gave a far better performance than they produced in their 5-0 loss to the hosts but a poor mistake from replacement goalkeeper Mohammed Al Owais handed the South Americans the victor in Rostov-on-Don on Wednesday.

That was Neville talking about the two-time World Cup winners Uruguay, who can't go any further than they've been before because they've already reached the pinnacle of the tournament.

Another alternative to watch Saudi Arabia vs Uruguay is to try out the FuboTV 7-day free trial. If Uruguay wins today then they move on and Saudi Arabia is out.

That was what Juan Antonio Pizzi stated as he declared himself pleased with his team's performance in the 1-0 defeat to Uruguay on Wednesday night.

"We forgot about it as soon as we got to the hotel", Saudi Arabia midfielder Taisir Al-Jassim told a news conference on Tuesday. "We must recognise that he's a crucial player to our national team because he shows solidarity on the pitch, he has a sense of responsibility and he has that enormous capacity to score goals". He fell back to defend and raced forward on the counterattack.

Cavani almost made it 2-0 for Uruguay with a solo run through the opposing defence but his attempt was blocked by Saudi Arabia goalkeeper Mohammed Alowais.
