After shipping five goals against hosts Russian Federation - the lowest-ranked team in the World Cup, Saudi Arabia could probably do with facing a rival other than South American powerhouse Uruguay and its star forward Luis Suarez. World Cup 2018 Group A gets underway at 11 P.M.in Rostov Arena.
Barring any last-minute disasters, the Barcelona striker will reach his century of games for the Celeste tomorrow when they play Saudi Arabia in Rostov-on-Don in Group A's second round of matches.
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.
Uruguay need to keep pace with hosts Russian Federation, who saw off Egypt 3-1 yesterday evening to all but secure passage into the knock-out rounds of the World Cup.
The FIFA World Cup 2018 Uruguay v/s Saudia Arabia match will take place on Wednesday, June 20, 2018. "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?
After the end of first group matches of all the teams in the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, the remaining matches of the teams have started. He has scored 51 goals in 99 matches so far. All the teams out there are good we respect all of them. While Saudi Arabia goalkeeper Mohammed Al Owais miss-timed the ball, Suarez was on hand to knock it inside the nets and become the first Uruguay player to score at three World Cups.
Saudi Arabia also had to play most of the match without trusted midfielder Taisser Aljassam, who limped off before halftime with an injury after lunging forward for a challenge.
Uruguay as a team weren't particularly impressive, either, as their play was often slow and lacking in spark or intensity.
"That was a huge blow to us and I'm proud of how my players came back from it", Pizzi said.
