Uruguay and Russia have both clinched a spot in the round of 16 of the FIFA World Cup in Russia on Wednesday thanks to the a 1-0 win over Saudi Arabia by La Celeste in their second group stage match. A Luis Suarez goal in the first half off a corner kick proved to be difference, but it was a proud and positive performance from the Saudi Arabians, who gave Uruguay more trouble than expected.
The win means Russia and Uruguay both have six points in Group A, with Egypt and Saudi Arabia eliminated with zero points apiece. It wasn't the most compelling performance from Uruguay, which struggled in the attack yet again, but you can't argue with back-to-back clean sheets and two wins to start the tournament.
