Suarez's Goal Books Uruguay's Place in FIFA WC Knockout Rounds

Uruguay vs. Saudi Arabia live stream: Watch World Cup online

Uruguay for the first time since 1954, won two of the opening match at the world Cup, and Suarez became the first Uruguayan player to have scored at three different Federation Internationale de Football Association world cups.

In their last 10 World Cup games, Saudi Arabia have failed to score in eight matches.

Regardless of the lead, the openings still fell for the Saudis and the best one came on 28 minutes from a cross on the left but striker Hatan Babhr was unable to keep his effort down as he skied over the top.

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

Saudi Arabia's possession-oriented style looks good on the eye but the lack of support structures for optimal ball circulation that helps create chances once again proved to be their weakness.

Suarez's 23rd minute goal has booked Uruguay's place in the World Cup knockout rounds.

The 31-year-old was largely anonymous during Uruguay's opening win against Egypt, and though far from the effervescent figure that Premier League and La Liga audiences are familiar with, he remains a hard opponent to pin down over 90 minutes.

Saudi Arabia, still smarting from their opening day 5-0 drubbing by Russian Federation, could make wholesale changes as they desperately try to stay in the tournament.

One goal against Saudi Arabia will not be enough to convince the naysayers that Suarez is ready to lead his country to glory, but it should serve as a timely reminder of his ability.

Last November, he switched agencies from WME to CAA, as he started negotiations on a potential new overall deal with Fox TV. Calling it "fringe s--", MacFarlane claimed Carlson was asking his fans to "blindly obey" the network.

Suarez's goal was by no means pretty, but it did the trick.

"I think two years ago European football took off and they are far away from all the national teams", he said.

"The difference between this display and the first game was enormous, the change was obvious", said the Argentine, who took charge last November, after Saudi had secured a first World Cup berth since 2006.

To his credit, the Barcelona forward - who has received bans in his previous two World Cups - passed the test of temperament.

"We were ready to suffer and ready to compete and ready to try our chances to win the game".

Uruguay players have hit out at the way Suarez was subsequently treated by the footballing authorities, but their protests have garnered little empathy outside the country.

Suarez threatened with a free-kick which was theatrically repelled by Al Owais early in the second period, before Carlos Sanchez wasted a free header following a fine cross from Edinson Cavani.

They play at club level together and know each other's games inside out.
