Tabarez hails `crucial´ Suarez after Uruguay beat Saudi…

Luis Suarez marked his 100th cap with the victor as Uruguay qualified for the World Cup knockout stages with an unconvincing victory which eliminated opponents Saudi Arabia. While Uruguay might score three goals, two is more likely, with Saudi Arabia possibly adding one.

Today's Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia 2018 FIFA World Cup soccer game result could determine who advances in Group A and who goes home. We lack the depth and skill required to win these games.

Suarez receives his 100th cap to become this sixth highest appearance maker in Uruguay's history.

"The goal we conceded was unfortunate, but we didn't have the tools they had".

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

And there were also moments of promise from Fahad Al Muwallad and Mohamed Kanno without there ever quite being enough thrust or accuracy to trouble their South American opponents or deliver a first victory in 12 World Cup matches. "We still haven't hit our stride so we need to tweak some things".

Cavani almost made it 2-0 for Uruguay with a solo run through the opposing defense but his attempt was blocked by Saudi Arabia goalkeeper Mohammed Alowais.

The South American's may have been expecting to win by more considering how disappointing the Saudi's were against the hosts Russian Federation on the opening day of the tournament, but they had to settle for just the one goal, but the most important thing was gaining the three points to seal qualification to the knockout rounds. "He lives under enormous pressure, but he lives with it".

Facing elimination, the Saudis fought hard for a goal with Hatan Bahmi getting several early chances.

Uruguay: Muslera - Varela, Gimenez, Godin, Caceres - Sanchez (Nantes, 82), Bentancourt, Vecino (Torreira, 59), Rodriguez (Laxalt, 59), Suarez, Cavani.

Saudi Arabia, however, were competitive throughout, playing neat football and enjoying most of the possession at the Rostov Arena. "We were happier after the match against Portugal, but we only had one point".

A lot of work remains to be done for Tabarez and his staff to ensure La Celeste return to their fluid best.

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.
