Luis Suarez scores victor as Uruguay and Russian Federation advance

Luis Suarez no doubt looked to rediscover his usual attacking verve on Tuesday as he trained in advance of Uruguay's second World Cup Group A fixture against Saudi Arabia.

At least Suarez, who missed three sitters in Uruguay's 1-0 opening win against Egypt, was his vintage efficient self with his 52nd global goal although he will not have dismissed fears he was not 100 percent fit.

It was the Barcelona striker's 52nd goal for his country in that century of games.

Suarez capitalised on a mistake by opposition goalkeeper Mohammed Al-Owais to net what proved to be the victor after 23 minutes, but it was far from the convincing display that Uruguay were expected to produce. By scoring Suarez became the first Uruguay player to score in three consecutive World Cups, once again highlighting his world class ability.

Griezmann pens Atletico Madrid extension
Barcelona had made Griezmann, the top scorer at Euro 2016, their top summer transfer target. We were together to watch the program, and clearly, I am very happy with his decision.

Uruguay would have been fortunate to score in the 80th minute when a long-range shot by Lucas Torreira found Edinson Cavani's head before going feet wide of the post.

Iran's opening victory over Morocco means they trail the two Iberian powers by a single point in Group B with all to play for against the European champions in Saransk next Monday.

Another alternative to watch Saudi Arabia vs Uruguay is to try out the FuboTV 7-day free trial.

Luis Suarez's goal for Uruguay was the 25th scored from a set-piece scenario at this World Cup tournament. "Today was another demonstration that it is so hard to win a game in a World Cup", said man-of-the-match Suarez.

"This World Cup is proving that what matters most is the result, and we're very proud to have reached the last 16 for the third time in a row".

Saudi Arabia faced host country Russian Federation in their opener and not only lost, but got blown out by a final score of 5-0.

"They've got a lot of good players with a lot of experience, and for a lot of them it could be their last chance at a World Cup".
