Portugal defender Cedric Soares said the European champions are more concerned about results than style ahead of a last-16 clash against Uruguay at the World Cup.

Both teams were already assured of spots in the knockout round, but Uruguay's victory put it at the top of Group A and looking toward a match in Sochi on Saturday against the second-place finisher from Group B. Uruguay take lead in the 10th minute through a free-kick.

In the other Group A tie which was of little or no importance, Egypt surprisingly lost 1-2 to Saudi Arabia.

Portugal and Iran played out a one all draw.

A terrible mix-up between Andres Iniesta and Sergio Ramos had allowed Khalid Boutaib to stride through and give Morocco a surprise 14th-minute lead.

"Overall I think we can all agree that we wanted to do better", Bakhashwain told Arab News. Mohammed Salah scored a goal for Egypt [22]. "Not specifically for him but in general terms".

This week's night sky: Saturn shining with full moon
This is the closest to Earth that Saturn will be this year as Saturn's rotational axis will now pull the planet away. The full Moon is always a handsome sight in the night sky, but this month it is particularly useful as well.

Two goals in the first 23 minutes and a red card for Russian Federation a little later killed off the game early.

Late in the second half, Cavani nailed Russia's coffin with a third goal as Uruguay continued a ideal run that has seen them win all their group matches; scoring five and conceding no goal.

A draw would also be good enough to give Russian Federation first place, thanks to the eight goals from two matches that have made believers out of fans used to decades of World Cup futility.

Despite their star name strikeforce, the pragmatic South Americans demonstrated against Saudi Arabia that they are more than willing to merely sit back and soak up pressure before hitting on the counter attack.

Uruguay need to improve on their showings if they're to win and top the group here, but if they manage to click they should be able to edge out the hosts.

Match-winner against Egypt, Jose Gimenez is out for Uruguay, whilst Alan Dzagoev is still out with a hamstring injury.
