On Wednesday, Luis Suarez, who was in limelight several times in the World Cup, will try to make Uruguay win in the 100th worldwide match in Saudi Arabia and try to tighten their place in the knockout of FIFA World Cup 2018. World Cup 2018 Group A gets underway at 11 Rostov Arena.

La Celeste snuck past Egypt 1-0 on Friday, a day after Saudi Arabia had been thrashed 5-0 by hosts Russian Federation in the opening match of the tournament.

Russian Federation and Uruguay can now look forward to a likely second-round meeting against either Portugal or Spain, depending on the outcome of Group B's remaining contests.

The last two World Cups have seen Suarez exit in ignominy. "And he has that enormous capacity to score goals", Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez said. The Saudis only in the end of the match tried to leave from defeat, but the powerful defense of Uruguay quietly strayed from the worst team in the world Cup.

Where is FIFA World Cup 2018 Uruguay v/s Saudia Arabia match? "We still haven't hit our stride so we need to tweak some things."Uruguay and Russian Federation both have six points from their opening two matches, putting them into the round of 16 with a match to go".

"We think it is a good route for the Saudi league have taken to promote the experience for Saudi players and I hope they continue doing so, because I think it will be reflected in the performance of the players and the national team", he commented.

The Saudis were crushed 5-0 by hosts Russian Federation in the opening game of Group A before a goalkeeping blunder from Mohammed Al-Owais handed Uruguay their place in the last 16 and eliminated the Green Falcons.

Despite the ever-present controversies, the 31-year-old is Uruguay's record goalscorer, scoring 51 times in 99 matches.

"It's spectacular, we are more than proud that Uruguay has [played] three consecutive World Cups qualifying for the round of 16", he said. Unfortunately we didn't create the opportunity we needed to equalize."Pizzi denied reports that Saudi officials had vetoed four players from the starting lineup on Wednesday".
