Uruguay Eye Second Win on the Trot

Uruguay Eye Second Win on the Trot

The goal distinguished Suarez, who made headlines four years ago for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during a Group Stage match, as the first Uruguay player to score at three different World Cups.

Earlier, Luis Suarez made his 100th global appearance for Uruguay on Wednesday after being named in the starting XI for their second World Cup match against Saudi Arabia in Rostov.

"His sense of responsibility is remarkable", said Tabarez of Suarez.

The Green Falcons had a good outing against Uruguay, far better than their 5-0 dismissal performance to Russian Federation on the opening day, they were made to pay for one lapse by goalkeeper Mohammed Al Owais, whose misjudgement allowed Suarez to score.

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.

The World Cup couldn't have begun any differently than it did for Uruguay and Saudi Arabia.

Suarez made a bright start, looking to make amends for his poor performance in the opening 1-0 win against Egypt, firing a left-footed volley from Cristian Rodriguez's knockdown which was blocked by Ali Al-Bulayhi.

In truth, it was another stuttering display from Oscar Tabarez's Uruguay team.

"The only way to compete at a World Cup is to play like we played today", said the Spaniard. That puts them in a must-win situation against Uruguay, favourites in Group A. They'll face Egypt in their final group-stage match on Monday, June 25.

Saudi Arabia had lots of the ball but didn't press forward enough to hurt Uruguay and it was a fairly comfortable victory in the end. "Unfortunately we didn't create the opportunity we needed to equalize". But they were outmatched by the Uruguayan defence and were under regular threat from Suarez and Cavani.
