Russian Federation player did something very confusing during Luis Suarez's free-kick for Uruguay

  • Uruguay's Luis Suarez and Uruguay's Martin Caceres arrive to Uruguay's official training on the eve of the group A match between Russia and Uruguay at the 2018 soccer World Cup at the Samara Arena in Samara Russia Sunday

Denis Cheryshev's own goal compounded Russia's misery 13 minutes later, with Smolnikov's dismissal - for a second yellow card issued after a foul on Edinson Cavani prior to half time - all but ending hopes of a comeback.

Russia's goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev (L) reacts as Luis Suarez celebrates Uruguay's second goal.

Godin was denied a goal to cap a fine individual performance when Akinfeev somehow kept out his 90th-minute bullet header, but Cavani was on hand to stab home the rebound and seal the win.

The coach rejected the notion that Smolov's presence alongside him guaranteed the striker would be starting, and suggested his yellow card when he did come on against Egypt could influence selection decisions, to avoid any potential suspensions for the second round.

Suarez looked determined to impress after his poor opening match against Egypt, and it was his clever low free-kick that set the tone for what was a very comfortable victory.

England fans are finally showing more interest in going to Russian Federation to roar their team on now that it's winning at the World Cup.

Luiz Suarez broke the deadlock in the 10th minute through a spectacular freekick, They doubled their lead through an own goal from Cheryshev in 23th minute.

But the Russian Federation keeper was beaten with 10 minutes gone after midfielder Rodrigo Betancur was tripped on the edge of the penalty area after Suarez had broken free down the left and crossed. "We did not marshal thoughts at the beginning of the match, but players rode roughshod over", Cherchesov stresses.

90' GOAL! Uruguay 3-0 Russia: There's the goal Cavani has been desperate for all afternoon!


Uruguay is making its 12th appearance at the World Cup, which it won in 1930 and 1950. He scored one goal in each tournament in South Africa in 2010, when Uruguay reached the semifinals, and in Brazil in 2014, when the South Americans were eliminated in the round of 16.

A 1-0 defeat of Egypt was mirrored against Saudi Arabia but Tabarez's side undoubtedly have more to prove in their last group game.

The Russian team took the second place in Group A, gaining six points, and the match of the 1/8 finals will be held in Luzhniki Stadium. Kick with 11-meter mark al-Muwallad reflected the 45-year-old writer national team of Egypt, El-hadary.

On a personal level I'm happy to move forwards, with the team we continue to make history. The decision was confirmed after a video review.

Yet the hosts are brimming with confidence having made it past the group stage of a World Cup for the first time since the Soviet Union lost to Belgium in the last 16 in 1986.

Portugal finished second in Group B after a draw with Iran.

Spain won the group after its 2-2 draw with Morocco.

Uruguay are the first side to win all three of their group games without conceding a single goal since Argentina in 1998 (seven goals scored, none conceded).
