Plane carrying Saudi Arabia's World Cup team catches fire

Referee blows the whistles.

9': Saudi Arabia have come out with a plan to be aggressive and get upfront early on. Good intent after a awful start to their world cup campaign.

6': A free kick to Saudi Arabia just outside the penalty zone.

12 Mins: Al Dawsari makes a poor first touch on halfway and lunges at the ball as he tries to recollect; in the process, he clips Suarez and concedes a free-kick. Saudis are giving each other high fives but the short corner amounts to nothing.

A tenacious tussle in midfield for possession eventually sees Saudi Arabia end up with the ball and they spread it wide to the right as they look to breakdown the Uruguay defence. Some work for the Uruguayan defenders early on.

Muslera - Caceres, Godin, Gimenez, Varela - Rodriguez, Vecino, Bentancur, Nandez - Cavani, Suarez.

3': Patience seems to be the key word for both the sides. Slow and steady wins the race?

1 Min: We're underway in Rostov-on-Don as Saudi Arabia kick-off! Replays show that the Uruguay centurion has a point but the goal-kick stands and Saudi Arabia have possession. Saudi Arabia need at least a draw to stay alive in the competition.

Luis Suarez picks up his 100th cap for his country - the sixth man to do so - in a mostly unchanged starting XI from the side who edged Egypt on Friday. Congratulations to him on the milestone.

The national anthems have been completed and we're moments away from this Group A clash.

The duo showed glimpses of their quality against Egypt, both players will be targeting to open their World Cup account against a Saudi side who looked completely out of their depth in their opener.

As Uruguay fans whipped up a fervent atmosphere on the eve of their team's World Cup game against Saudi Arabia, supporters expressed their gratitude towards coach Oscar Tabarez whilst admitting their concern over the form of Luis Suarez.

Muslera will also tie Ladislao Mazurkiewicz as the player to have made the most appearances for Uruguay at a World Cup.

"There is no doubt that facing the Uruguayan team is hard and that it is known for its worldwide stars, but we are determined to improve our image from the previous match and the joy of the Saudi fans", said Saudi Arabia midfielder Taisir Al-Jassim.
