Russian Federation player did something very confusing during Luis Suarez's free-kick for Uruguay

Luis Suarez Uruguay World Cup 2018

Luis Suarez netted his second goal in as many World Cup games as Uruguay secured top spot in Group A with a comfortable 3-0 victory over hosts Russian Federation, who had Igor Smolnikov sent off.

Coach Stanislav Cherchesov had made two more changes but they also backfired spectacularly, with Igor Smolnikov sent off in the 36th minute after a second booking, and Fyodor Kudryashov equally overworked in defense.

Luis Suarez grabbed his second goal of the tournament to open Uruguay's account with a free-kick after 10 minutes when he struck a low free-kick into the bottom corner that should have been easy pickings for Russian Federation keeper Igor Akinfeev. Alexander Golovin had been the team's creative spark in midfield, but he was rested since another yellow card for him would have meant a one-game ban.

The hosts were rewarded with their best chances of the match, the first to Artem Dzuba, who fired wildly over the bar from inside the box, the second by Fedor Smelov, who dazzled to find space in behind the Uruguay defence but failed to pick out a team-mate with what looked to be an easy cut-back.

The host team achieved its minimum objective and already qualified from Group A along with their opponent.

Finishing second in Group A gives Russian Federation a game July 1 at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium, where it demolished Saudi Arabia 5-0, while Uruguay will have to play in the searing heat at the beach resort of Sochi. Midfielder Diego Laxalt's shot from long range deflected off Denis Cheryshev's foot and past goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev.

Elizabeth is reportedly scheduled to meet with Trump in the United Kingdom on July 13, though nothing has been finalized yet. Good Morning Britain reportedly paid Thomas £7500 (almost $10,000) for the interview.

But Cavani had the final word, prodding home in the last minute after a Godin header had been parried.

"It's clear that they have top notch players, while we have very good players, too", Cherchesov said. He will also break his nation's record for World Cup appearances, with 14. Kick with 11-meter mark al-Muwallad reflected the 45-year-old writer national team of Egypt, El-hadary.

Salem Aldawsari scored with nearly the last kick, shooting from a tight angle inside the Egypt penalty area and poking the ball past El Hadary. The decision was confirmed after a video review.

The result sees Uruguay top the group with three wins from three, five goals scored and none conceded, and they will now face one of Spain, Portugal or Iran from Group B in the last 16. The 2016 European champions will next face Uruguay on Saturday in the round of 16.

They will take on the Group B victor on July 1.
