Plane carrying Saudi Arabia's World Cup team catches fire before landing safely in Rostov

Uruguay play Saudi Arabia in a Group A match in Rostov-on-Don on Wednesday.

The result, though, had a domino effect in Group A. It also put host Russian Federation into the next round while eliminating both Saudi Arabia and Egypt at the same time.

Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez paid tribute to Luis Suarez as the team prepared for Wednesday's World Cup match against Saudi Arabia - the 100th global appearance for the Barcelona striker.

Luis Suarez scored the only goal at the Rostov Arena, sweeping in from close range on his 100th worldwide appearance.

It was a momentous day for Luis Suarez - the forward earned his 100th cap for Uruguay and he crowned the occasion with a goal.

Suarez, who became the sixth Uruguay player to reach the century mark, tallied the only goal for La Celeste in the 23rd minute in front of 42,678 fans at the Rostov Arena. He fell back to defend and raced forward alongside Edinson Cavani on the counterattack.

Trump says he'll be 'signing something' on detained children
But the implementation of "zero tolerance" by the Trump administration has led to more prosecutions and, thus, more separations. Neither, though, did it require parents to be kept in detention, apart from their children.

"That's not the best game we've seen at this World Cup", admitted Drogba.

"We have other priorities, more important than worrying about Cavani and Suarez". Remember in the past when we saw scoreboards of 10-1 in a World Cup? We lack the depth and skill required to win these games. Unlikely to concede at the back, they also have a forward line that is the envy of nearly every other nation at the World Cup.

Facing a very compact Iranian team that came out to defend, Spain pressed high and controlled much of the game but found it hard to threaten against Iran's 10-man defense. Saudis were unable to get real chances, let alone a goal in their first two matches. If Suarez is on form he lifts the whole team and they can be a match for anyone.

Oscar Tabarez's side missed plenty of opportunities to add further goals, but a toothless Saudi Arabia outfit never seriously looked like snatching a point.

Efficiency is something Saudi Arabia will have to massively improve on for the 2019 Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates but at least, in one game against Uruguay, they showed pride. Abdullah Otayf also makes a start.

The fact that Luis Suarez has got off the mark is a welcome bonus that only makes them more unsafe. This World Cup has summed up Suarez - a striker who scores enough goals to hide his shortcomings in finishing.
