FIFA World Cup 2018 Live Score Streaming, Uruguay vs Russia Live: Starting lineups announced

Uruguay's Luis Suarez and Uruguay's Martin Caceres arrive to Uruguay's official training on the eve of the group A match between Russia and Uruguay at the 2018 soccer World Cup at the Samara Arena in Samara Russia Sunday

Uruguay seal top spot in World Cup Group A with a 3-0 win over 10-man Russian Federation at the Samara Arena, with both Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani on the scoresheet.

That silenced a vociferous home crowd which had been in party mode after Russia's opening two victories and were not expecting their final group contest to be effectively ended in the 36th minute when Igor Smolnikov was sent off.

A clever free kick from Luis Suarez in the 10th minute opened proceedings before Denis Cheryshev deflected Diego Laxalt's long shot into his own net in the 23rd minute.

Godin was denied a goal to cap a fine individual performance when Akinfeev somehow kept out his 90th-minute bullet header, but Cavani was on hand to stab home the rebound and seal the win. Coach Oscar Tabarez is expected to make changes in midfield and could even alter their tactical system, due to the inclusion of Lucas Torreira.

"It is not an accident that we have two wins under our belt", Cherchesov said.

England fans are finally showing more interest in going to Russian Federation to roar their team on now that it's winning at the World Cup.

Diego Laxalt later put Uruguay up by 2.

With an eye on the next game, Cheryshev - easily Russia's best player on the pitch - was replaced by defender Mario Fernandes, who did offer some stability to the defence.


Cherchesov also says that Russian football players rode roughshod over the beginning of such hard matches as the one against Uruguay was.

"We have reached our goal to be first in the group", Suarez said in first television interviews. "We really wanted", says the coach, calling the team "psychologically strong".

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.

Cherchesov also bristled at the implications of reporters pointing out that Russian Federation had covered far more distance than any other team in their first two matches in the tournament.

Salman Alfaraj got the Saudis level with a penalty kick in first-half stoppage time after Ali Gabr brought down Fahad Almuwallad in the area.

But Uruguay - with Suarez and Cavani leading the line - proved too strong for the World Cup hosts, doubling their lead on 23 minutes.

Their opponents there will be Spain - with the 2010 World Cup winners secure their place as Group B winners with a draw against Morocco.
