Fifa World Cup - Russia 2018

Uruguay beat Saudi Arabia 1 – 0 #worldCup

Full time:¬†Uruguay 1 Saudi 0¬†Uruguay are through to the next round, the Saudis are out. Can’t say I am especially sorry to see the back of the Saudi Arabian side, very limited. Uruguay surely can do better than that, a grinding performance, set piece goal and to be honest I think we should all just move on as quickly as possible!

Uruguay World Cup

Sanchez misses. Uruguay catch RSA by surprise by releasing Cavani down the left with a quick freekick. The striker takes his time and swings in a perfect ball into the box right onto the head of Sanchez who can’t find the target. Great cross from Cavani!!

Just not Edinson’s day. He does the hard part of driving through the middle from midfield and finds his way into the box after evading the last-ditch tackles. He is, however, unable to beat the keeper with his shot.

After hosts Russia, Uruguay makes it 2 in 2 to book their place in the Round of 16. With back to back defeats, Saudi Arabia follows Morocco out of the tournament. Egypt, the other team in Group A are also knocked out of the World Cup.
