Suarez celebrates after scoring his team's first goal during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group A match against Saudi Arabia at Rostov Arena in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Like Egypt, the Green Falcons lost 1-0 to Uruguay on June 20.

The game against Uruguay will give Saudi Arabia a chance to move on from their 5-0 defeat to Uruguay on Thursday.

Juan Antonio Pizzi's Saudi Arabia continued to look far more assured on the ball than it did in the 5-0 drubbing by Russian Federation on the opening day of the tournament, with Hatan Bahbri firing a wild volley over shortly after seeing a long-range effort tipped away by Fernando Muslera.
