Uruguay outplay Russian Federation, top Group A

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 FIFA World Cup 2018 Live Score Streaming, Uruguay vs Russia Live: Starting lineups announced

Uruguay, controlling possession and playing the ball around confidently, exposed the hosts for what they are - the lowest-ranked team in this World Cup.

Russian Federation had won just two of nine World Cup matches before kicking off the most watched event on the planet with a 5-0 rout of the Saudis.

Suarez tossed aside his translation headphones, then smiled broadly in defiance and finally said: "What a waste of time".

But perhaps the biggest plus was the late goal from Cavani, who had been frustrated during the group stage.

"After winning the first two matches 1-0, our goal was to get another", Suarez said.

The country selected 11 host cities to be the venues for the matches of the 2018 World Cup and they are Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara. Uruguay prevailed in a shootout, and Suarez was marked as a dirty player.

Denis Cherysheu would have himself to blame for scoring an own goal in the 23rd minute to give Uruguay two goal lead after he was unable to clear a shot played by Lucas Torreira, but he instead netted into his own net.

The first half however ended with Uruguay leading 2-0 at the Samara Arena.

FIFA 2018: Brazil ease into last 16 with win over Serbia
A draw will just be enough for the Selacao to book the last round of 16 but they were not ready to take any chances. Brazil had an early setback when left back Marcelo was substituted in the 10th minute, limping off the field.

"But their fans instead of celebrating minutes after the game are responsible for cleaning their sector before leaving #Respect". Senegal's fans were not the only ones winning praise on social media for their sense of social responsibility.

Cavani scored in the 90th minute and was taken out a short time later.

But Cavani had the final word, prodding home in the last minute after a Godin header had been parried. Still, Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez sees the match as an opportunity to fine-tune the team for the next round.

"We wanted to score a goal, and we have chances to score".

There is consolation that this was not their full-strength team and that, when they play in the last 16, three key players will be relatively fresh.

The 6-1 win over Panama - England's largest-ever margin of victory at the World Cup - was watched by 14.1 million, which was nearly 83 percent of the TV audience in Britain. Both sides are already through to the knockout stages after collecting six points from six, although team Russian Federation boast a far superior goal difference.

"I am pleased with my players as, after we lost a player [full-back Igor Smolnikov, sent off for two bookings], we were aggressive and showed we were real men". "We were rather aggressive".

Uruguay have finished as first round group winners for the fifth time, having done so previously in 1930, 1950, 1954 and 2010.

Left-back Yuri Zhirkov is one player who could sit out, despite returning from a foot injury to keep Salah quiet in the 3-1 victory on Tuesday. The team did not say when he might return.
