Portugal's forward Cristiano Ronaldo sticks his tongue out during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group B football match between Portugal and Morocco at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on June 20, 2018.

Ronaldo heads home his fourth goal of the tournament.

Luis Suarez marked his 100th worldwide cap by sending Uruguay into the last 16 of the World Cup as the striker benefited from some poor goalkeeping to eliminate Saudi Arabia with a 1-0 win.

The Atlas Lions, who lost 0-1 to Iran in their first game, lie bottom of the group without a point.

"I think we deserved a lot more". Bernardo Silva chose to take a short corner with the help of Joao Moutinho, who crossed a teasing ball to the six-yard box.

For Portugal, a win today puts them in a good shape for qualification to the next round whilst Morocco must win today in order not to suffer the same fate as Egypt who virtually got kicked out yesterday.

Homeland Security chief slams 'irresponsible' reports of separating migrant families
Technically, Nielsen's correct: families are separated not at the US-Mexico border, but near the border, at a sorting centre. That was the rule, Kraft said she was told: They're not allowed to touch the children.

Ronaldo's 85th global goal made him Europe's all-time leading worldwide goalscorer as he broke Hungary legend Ferens Puskas's 62-year-old record.

The goal - Ronaldo's fourth in two games - made him the top-scoring European in worldwide football to dump Herve Renard's Morocco out of the World Cup.

Suarez tapped in midway through the first half after keeper Mohammed Al-Owais failed to grab the ball on a corner.

The Real Madrid forward threatened a second soon after, swivelling on the edge of the area and scuffing just wide after a powerful run from left-back Raphael Guerreiro.

Portugal will play their last group game against Iran while Morocco face Spain, both on June 25.

Morocco did well to insert its presence in the match following the early goal, but various chances from Medhi Benatia and Hakim Ziyech weren't enough to break past Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio.
