After the victory of Uruguay over Saudi Arabia (1:0) has selected the first two participants of the 1/8 finals of the 2018 world Cup.

Apart from a Suarez shot getting palmed away following a free-kick, the Uruguayans were left dwindling for most of the opening 15 minutes of the second half.

"In this World Cup we have great strikers with important records".

After firing blanks in the opening game against Egypt, Suarez atoned for his unforgivable misses with a calmly taken goal on Wednesday. Defeat against Uruguay would nearly certainly see them eliminated from the competition, although they also play against Egypt in their final group game.
