Uruguay opened the tournament with a 1-0 win over Egypt.

The World Cup continues when Uruguay takes on Saudi Arabia in their second game of Group A play on Wednesday. While Uruguay might score three goals, two is more likely, with Saudi Arabia possibly adding one.

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

"We are not happy with the way the first match went, but will trust in our ability to go out and win the next game", Pizzi said. In the match played in the Rostov Arena, Suarez scored this goal in the corner of Carlos Sanchez's corner.

La Celeste have won both their Group A games, haven't conceded yet and have their main striker among the goals. "And he has that enormous capacity to score goals", Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez said.

"You need results now and then to show you are on the right track, people say we have done things we haven't done before, but we are more anxious about what we have to do in terms of work and planning", said Tabarez, who was delighted to have qualified for the last 16 before they face hosts, Russia.

- Saudi Arabia have now been eliminated at the group stages in four of the five World Cup Finals they have participated in. If Suarez is on form he lifts the whole team and they can be a match for anyone. It will be the final game in the competition for both sides, with only pride to play for, as they battle it out to see who will finish third in the group and who will be left in bottom spot.

Saudi Arabia collapsed in their opener against the Russians, losing 5-0, but they managed to keep the scoreline respectable here, albeit rarely threatening to snatch an unlikely draw.

"Well, as for the event yesterday [Monday], you've seen the pictures, they speak for themselves, but we don't know anything else, we have had no further info", he said. "Today was another demonstration that it is so hard to win a game in a World Cup", said man-of-the-match Suarez.
