Luis Suarez of Uruguay celebrates after scoring his team's first goal during the 2018 FIFA World CupRussia group A match between Uruguay and Saudi Arabia at Rostov Arena on June 20, 2018 in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Anyway, he was off his game in the first match and Uruguay as a whole were so-so against Egypt, needing a late victor from Jose Gimenez to win by the single goal. Defeat against Uruguay would nearly certainly see them eliminated from the competition, although they also play against Egypt in their final group game.
But Group A favourite Uruguay is still widely expected to clobber Saudi Arabia, the second-lowest World Cup team in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings at No. 67.
Suarez tapped in midway through the first half after keeper Mohammed Al-Owais failed to grab the ball on a corner.
"This World Cup is proving that what matters most is the result, and we're very proud to have reached the last 16 for the third time in a row".
Maybe Saudi Arabia isn't the worst team at the World Cup?
