Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

Luis Suarez marked his 100th global cap by sending Uruguay into the last 16 of the World Cup as the striker benefited from some poor goalkeeping to eliminate Saudi Arabia with a 1-0 win on Wednesday.

Luis Suarez put both Uruguay and host Russian Federation into the second round of the World Cup while eliminating Saudi Arabia and Egypt at the same time.

Suarez scored the winning goal in his 100th global appearance for Uruguay, knocking in a corner kick from Carlos Sanchez in the 23rd minute to give the two-time champions a 1-0 victory over the Saudis on Wednesday.

Suarez scored the only goal after 23 minutes of his 100th global appearance to clinch qualification for the round-of-16 with a game to spare.

Iran had relied nearly entirely on their steely defence to keep them in the match for the first 54 minutes and it was only after the ball had deflected off Costa's knee and into the net that they took the game to the Spanish. By scoring Suarez became the first Uruguay player to score in three consecutive World Cups, once again highlighting his world class ability.

The contest continued in similar fashion after halftime as Saudi Arabia pressed forward in search of the equaliser, while Uruguay were content to sit back and pump balls forward in hope that either Suarez or Edinson Cavani could capitalise.

The 31-year-old Suarez, whose previous two World Cups both ended in bans after his infamous 2010 handball against Ghana and bite on Italy's Giorgio Chiellini four years later, took advantage of a goalkeeping error by Mohammed Al-Owais to put Uruguay ahead midway through the first half. "Football is not like this but it is fair to say we deserved a better result", said Queiroz.

Luis Suarez's goal for Uruguay was the 25th scored from a set-piece scenario at this World Cup tournament.

The result officially knocked out both Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

The Pharaohs, who have lost hopes of proceeding in the world's most prestigious football tournament, from which they had been absent for 28 years, have made a decision to cancel a scheduled training session on Wednesday to rest the players. "It's a further demonstration of how complicated it is to win a World Cup match, and World Cups are like that". You don't see 10-0 games at the World Cup anymore.

Iran coach Carlos Queiroz knows they now face Spain and Portugal in their next two games, but insisted his team can "make the impossible possible".
