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

Luis Suarez booked Uruguay's place in the World Cup knockout rounds, marking his 100th worldwide appearance with the only goal in a 1-0 victory over Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia were devoid of ideas and simply could not find a response as Uruguay comfortably preserved their slender lead to ensure that both they and hosts Russian Federation secured their qualification to the knockout stages.

Their pressure eventually paid off in the 23rd minute as Suarez gave Oscar Tabarez's charges the lead with a left-footed strike inside the box following a corner, 1-0.

It was the Barcelona striker's 52nd goal for his country in that century of matches.

To be the best player in the world you have to aim high - you can not aim low - so just put no limits on yourself. England's first match of the 2018 World Cup drew the biggest TV audience of the year so far.

It was a momentous day for Luis Suarez - the forward earned his 100th cap for Uruguay and he crowned the occasion with a goal.

Uruguay would have been fortunate to score in the 80th minute when a long-range shot by Lucas Torreira found Edinson Cavani's head before going feet wide of the post. Muslera will also tie Ladislao Mazurkiewicz as the player to have made the most appearances for Uruguay at a World Cup.

Maybe Saudi Arabia isn't the worst team at the World Cup?

"We do want to score more but there are other positives: no yellow cards, no injuries", Tabarez said of this year's performances. You don't see 10-0 games at the World Cup anymore. "That is a cardinal rule for us".

The record amount for a World Cup is six in 1998. "Today we had 10 or 15 very bad minutes, that's why we lost", Cuper said. "I think he will be able to play".

Saudi Arabia were nowhere in the game despite having a ball possession of 57 per cent for they lacked the capability to crack through Uruguay's defence. But they were outmatched by the Uruguayan defense and were under regular threat from Suarez and Cavani.

"I do fancy them in this tournament", said Neville. "My aim is to stay on and to see this team grow". "We conceded a goal from a random play and didn't have the weapons or tools to try to equalize".

"We wanted to win and to progress to the knock-out stage and this game simply showed how hard it is".

Pizzi denied reports that Saudi officials had vetoed four players from the starting lineup on Wednesday.

Earlier this month, the southpaw was confirmed to be a part of the Winnipeg Hawks in the soon-to-begin Global T20 Canada League. The month-long CPL will also feature other Australians like all-rounder Shane Watson and Chris Lynn.

"The difference between the performance in the first game and this game is enormous", Pizzi said. "That's what I know".
