Depressed Egypt team back to Grozny for prepare for Saudi Arabia game

Plane carrying Saudi Arabia's World Cup team catches fire before landing safely in Rostov

After sneaking past Egypt in their World Cup opener with a stoppage-time victor, Uruguay will field a veteran side containing seven players aged 31 or over against Saudi Arabia as they seek a victory that would seal their place in the last 16.

The controversial striker, who was making his 100th appearance in his national team's light blue, scored Wednesday to give Uruguay a 1-0 victory over Saudi Arabia and a spot in the round of 16.

On his 100th global cap, the Barcelona striker tapped home the winning goal from close range in the 23rd minute - his first of the tournament. While Uruguay might score three goals, two is more likely, with Saudi Arabia possibly adding one.

But Group A favourites Uruguay are still widely expected to clobber Saudi Arabia, the second-lowest World Cup team in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings at No. 67. Saudis were unable to get real chances, let alone a goal in their first two matches.

"We were ready to suffer and ready to compete and ready to try our chances to win the game".

"We have to fine tune a few things, we have to work on a few aspects".

Luis Suarez won his 100th cap for Uruguay, starting up front with Edinson Cavani. Remember in the past when we saw scoreboards of 10-1 in a World Cup?

There was, nevertheless, plenty for Serbia to be pleased about, with Mitrovic particularly impressive in the air. Albania's national flag was at the center of Switzerland's 2-1 victory over Serbia on Friday at the World Cup .

"We had a lot of ball possession and were able to impose our style of play and distribution", Pizzi said after their defeat, quoted by Arab News. All the teams out there are good, we respect all of them.

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. The 1930 and 1950 champions reached the semifinals in 2010. "That is a cardinal rule for us".

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.

"Now that we have come to the hotel we have forgotten all the events that took place", he said.

Phil Neville was also on BBC's commentary team for the match, and he fancies Uruguay to go far this year. But he was back to his clinical best yesterday as he opened his account in this year's competition.

The corner is whipped in from the left, Alowais comes out to punch it out, but the ball flies past him, Suarez taps it in with his left from three yards out.
