But Group A favourite Uruguay is still widely expected to clobber Saudi Arabia, the second-lowest World Cup team in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings at No. 67.

A win today means, Uruguay would get six points, and both Uruguay and Russian Federation would be six points clear of Egypt and Saudi Arabia with one game to be played ahead.

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.

La Celeste have won both their Group A games, haven't conceded yet and have their main striker among the goals.

Suarez scored the important goal of the match in the 23rd minute of the game, which proved to be the final breakthrough. Uruguay narrowly beat Egypt 1-0 thanks to an 89th-minute Jose Gimenez header. He fell back to defend and raced forward on the counterattack.

'It's not about being young or experienced it's due to the needs of the team for this game, and according to my information this is the line-up which will best suit us, ' said 71-year-old Tabarez.

"His sense of responsibility is remarkable", Tabarez said of Suarez. Remember in the past when we saw scoreboards of 10-1 in a World Cup?

Russian Federation leads Group A on goal difference after beating Saudi Arabia 5-0 on Thursday in the tournament's first match. Jose Gimenez scored the winning goal for Uruguay with a brilliant header in 89th minute of the match.

That was Neville talking about the two-time World Cup winners Uruguay, who can't go any further than they've been before because they've already reached the pinnacle of the tournament.

Cavani almost made it 2-0 on a solo run through the opposing defense but his attempt was blocked by Saudi Arabia goalkeeper Mohammed Alowais. Precisely because, as you rightly said, they have two players in attack who are world-class players.

"There are not many countries that can say football is part of their identity, but we are one of them".

Fernando Muslera had to tip over a long-range drive from Hattan Bahebri, who then missed a fine chance in the box, as Saudi Arabia responded well to falling behind.

Uruguay was the only South American team to win its opening match in a tournament where upsets have been commonplace. But they were outmatched by the Uruguayan defense and were under regular threat from Suarez and Cavani. He also has nine goals in his last nine starts for Spain.

The Sky Blue should have beaten Egypt by a wider margin than they did but Luis Suarez could not finish multiple chances.
