Five of those have come in the World Cup, and despite a sluggish start in Uruguay's 1-0 opening game win against Egypt, the match against a weak Saudi Arabia side may offer him the chance to celebrate his centenary in style.

Saudi Arabia gave a far better performance than it produced in its 5-0 loss to the host but a poor mistake from replacement goalkeeper Mohammed Al Owais handed the South American side the victor in Rostov-on-Don on Thursday (AEST).

Suarez, who was kicked out of the last World Cup for biting an opponent during a match, knocked in a corner kick from Carlos Sanchez in the 23rd minute for his 52nd goal for his country.

Saudi Arabia have now failed to win any of their previous 12 World Cup matches (D2 L10), failing to score in nine of those games.

Another alternative to watch Saudi Arabia vs Uruguay is to try out the FuboTV 7-day free trial.

With a single goal, Luis Suarez settled the fate of four teams in the group stage of the World Cup.

Despite taking the lead, Uruguay were far from impressive and goalkeeper Fernando Muslera had to be alert to tip over a dipping effort from Hattan Bahebri.

Uruguay as a team weren't particularly impressive, either, as their play was often slow and lacking in spark or intensity.

"We are not happy with the way the first match went, but will trust in our ability to go out and win the next game", Pizzi said.

That goal served to halt Belgium's early dominance, but they did grab a third with nearly the last kick of the half. England (three points) face Panama (none) on Sunday in the same group.

Saudi Arabia, thrashed 5-0 by Russian Federation in their opener, offered more resilience against Uruguay but rarely threatened an unlikely draw.

Uruguay continued to be wasteful in front of goal, as Martin Caceres sent a header flying off target from 33-year-old Sanchez's free-kick.

"We think it is a good route for the Saudi league have taken to promote the experience for Saudi players and I hope they continue doing so, because I think it will be reflected in the performance of the players and the national team", he commented.

"But we'll still represent our country, and we'll make Saudi Arabia proud even though we are out of the tournament".

Despite securing progress to the last 16, long-serving boss Tabarez, who has now guided the two-time world champions past the group stages at the last three World Cups, admitted his team were below par.

His side play Egypt in their final Group A game next Monday, when only pride will be at stake as the north African side are also heading home after losing twice.

Strikers: Cristhian Stuani, Maximiliano Gomez, Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez.

In 2026 in North America, the first 48-team World Cup, there will be potentially more Arab teams than ever before.
