Uruguay sealed first place in World Cup Group A, with a 3-0 win over 10-man Russian Federation. And it will no doubt get harder following the match against Luis Suarez and Uruguay because the top finishers in Group A go on to face the best two from Group B, which includes Portugal and Spain. It got worse for the home side when a Diego Laxalt effort from 25 yards was deflected in by Denis Cheryshev.
Russia, the lowest ranked team in the field at No. 70, went down to 10 men after right back Igor Smolnikov received a second yellow card in the 36th minute.
In the second half, Uruguay was in no hurry to kill the opponent, but in the end still brought the score to devastating - the first goal of the tournament scored by Edinson Cavani.

Written off as no-hopers before the World Cup, Russia head to the Volga River city of Samara for a game which will see the victor secure top spot in Group A following the elimination of Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
The coach rejected the notion that Smolov's presence alongside him guaranteed the striker would be starting, and suggested his yellow card when he did come on against Egypt could influence selection decisions, to avoid any potential suspensions for the second round.
Perhaps the fact that Russian Federation, the lowest ranked team here at 70 in the world, started this game having already qualified affected their approach.

Their defensive discipline paired with the attacking threat that Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani provide make Uruguay the trickiest opponent that Russian Federation has faced at the tournament so far. "We have good players too, some are better than theirs", the coach said.
Their struggles so far mean a shake-up in midfield is likely, with Sampdoria's Lucas Torreira a certain inclusion after impressing as a substitute against the Saudis.

Although the match was not crucial, we wanted to take the first place [in the group].
Uruguay doubled their lead when Diego Laxalt's shot took a wicked deflection off the leg of defender Cheryshev and flew past the despairing Akinfeev on 23 minutes.
Luis Suarez. Uruguay haven't looked terribly impressive at this World Cup but have managed to remain ideal in the group stages thanks to a miserly defence and the efforts of their talisman.
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. In 2026 in North America, the first 48-team World Cup, there will be potentially more Arab teams than ever before.
