Welcome to the club! Cavani joins Suarez in Uruguayan goalscorer record

Share

The South Americans outclassed the hosts in every department to cruise to a 3-0 victory, secure top spot in the group with three wins and send their hapless opponents back to the drawing board ahead of the knockout stage.

It went from bad to worse for Russian Federation as they were reduced to ten men before the interval. Both teams then face the likely prospect of going up against either Spain or Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal in the last 16 - although underdogs Iran are still in the running in a tight Group B.

Suarez was on target for Uruguay.

Oscar Tabarez's charges haven't been overly exciting in their first two matches, with two successive 1-0 victories against Egypt and Saudi Arabia confirming their place in the round of 16 prior to the final group match, but they were much better on Monday. We are satisfied with what the team did, we've already said this in previous press conferences.

Asked if his side "played like world champions", the 71-year-old replied: "Let me put the brakes on".

"It's obviously what we wanted".

With their talismanic forward Mohammed Salah struggling with his fitness following a rather hurried return from a left shoulder dislocation, Egypt have struggled in the two matches they played so far.

"We can begin to think about the next round".

Today, they come up against a nation that have not been outstanding but very efficient and effective with their plans - Uruguay. "When they feel comfortable is when they score goals, it's not a matter of being selfish it's quite simply because strikers contribute a lot to the team". All signs point to over two goals in this game.

"These players will be able to contribute for sure so I think that it's very important that both Cavani and Luis scored".
