The Saudis gave Carlos Alberto Parreira the chop after a 4-0 loss to hosts France in the group stages in 1998 - even though four years earlier he had won the World Cup with his native Brazil.

Suarez's 52nd worldwide goal means that Uruguay and Russian Federation have both qualified for the knockout stages of the competition, while Saudi Arabia and Egypt are eliminated with one group match still to play.

A victory may cement Uruguay's position as the group's leaders, lining them most probably for a tough second-round clash against Spain or Portugal.

"We are more than proud because we've reached the knockout stage at three successive World Cups".

"What we wanted was to win and move on to the next phase". "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".

Where is the World Cup 2018 Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia match? You don't see 10-0 games at the World Cup anymore.

"The goal we conceded was unfortunate, but we didn't have the tools they had".

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.

Uruguay: Muslera - Varela, Gimenez, Godin, Caceres - Sanchez (Nantes, 82), Bentancourt, Vecino (Torreira, 59), Rodriguez (Laxalt, 59), Suarez, Cavani.

If history is anything to go by, Saudi Arabia's Argentine-born coach Juan Antonio Pizzi could become the next coaching casualty if Saudi authorities react with the anger displayed after past defeats. We couldn't equalize, but we controlled the play.
