Luis Suarez makes history with victor over Saudi Arabia as Uruguay progress

Saudi Arabia will face Luis Suarez and Uruguay in its next match. More

It's been more than 60 years since La Celeste have began a World Cup by winning their opening two matches, yet that's exactly what they've achieved in Russian Federation.

FC Barcelona superstar Luis Suarez scored the only goal of the game as Uruguay defeated Saudi Arabia 1-0 to advance to the 2018 World Cup round of 16.

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

It made Suarez the first Uruguayan player to score in three different World Cups as he sealed legendary status for his country.

Saudi Arabia will face Luis Suarez and Uruguay in its next match.

"It's spectacular, we are more than proud that Uruguay has [played] three consecutive World Cups qualifying for the round of 16", he said.




Facing elimination, the Saudis fought hard for a goal with Hatan Bahmi getting several early chances. Given Uruguay's superior talent level, manager Oscar Tabarez could opt to rotate his squad and prevent any key players from picking up any injuries.

"We are not playing the way we like, but as we have seen in the World Cup, what counts are the results". We were very, very below our potential", said the 71-year-old "We managed to qualify for the knockout stage, that's what we wanted and really that's what we needed and Saudi Arabia could have made it hard for us.

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.

"We forgot about it as soon as we got to the hotel", Saudi Arabia midfielder Taisir Al-Jassim told a news conference on Tuesday.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani started alongside Suarez as the pair look to add to their combined tally of 93 global goals. "That's what I know".
