Luis Suarez scored the only goal and Uruguay edged Saudi Arabia 1-0 in FIFA World Cup Group A play in Russia's southern city of Rostov-on-Don on Wednesday, attended by 42,678 fans.

With a single goal, Luis Suarez settled the fate of four teams in the group stage of the World Cup.

Uruguay will lock horns with Saudi Arabia in Group A match at Rostov Arena Rostov-On-Don on Wednesday.

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. When Saudi Arabia could not survive against Russian Federation, to whom they lost 0-5, in the upcoming match, they are up against a stronger side like Uruguay.

The last two World Cups have seen Suarez exit in ignominy.

"What we wanted was to win and move on to the next phase".

The Saudis were crushed 5-0 by hosts Russian Federation in the opening game of Group A before a goalkeeping blunder from Mohammed Al-Owais handed Uruguay their place in the last 16 and eliminated the Green Falcons.

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. We couldn't equalize, but we controlled the play.

"We'll make Saudi Arabia proud even though we are out of the tournament".
