Uruguay makes knockout stage, ousts Saudi Arabia

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

Suarez struck from close range in the 23rd minute for his 52nd worldwide goal, and Uruguay hung on for a 1-0 win over the Saudis.

Fellow Uruguay supporter Juan Martin Di Pascua, 22, draped in a national team flag, said: "It makes us a bit anxious as he's the key for the team along with (Edinson) Cavani so I pray to God he starts playing well again soon".

Depending on the result of their last group game against Russia, Uruguay will take on either Spain, Portugal or Iran, who are still on course in Group B for a place in the quarter-finals.

"What we wanted was to win and move on to the next phase". "It's not about being young or experienced it's due to the needs of the team for this game, and according to my information this is the line-up which will best suit us", Tabarez told a news conference on Tuesday.

Maybe Saudi Arabia isn't the worst team at the World Cup? "That is a cardinal rule for us".

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani started alongside Suarez as the pair look to add to their combined tally of 93 worldwide goals.

According to BBC, it was hard on the Green Falcons, who were knocked out despite a vast improvement from their 5-0 defeat by Russian Federation in the tournament's opening game.

"I do fancy them in this tournament", said Neville. "My aim is to stay on and to see this team grow".

"All my players are available for all the matches", Pizzi said. Tonight we showed a lot of the things that we are capable of doing ... "That's what I know".
