Uruguay records third straight shutout with defeat of Russia

A fan of Team Russia waves the Russian flag ahead of a 2018 FIFA World Cup Group A football match between Russia and Uruguay at Samara Arena

Russian Federation showed greater solidity after the interval, with Artem Dzyuba wasting a chance for a consolation, but the damage was already done by the time Cavani got his first goal of the tournament in the 90th minute.

But after 23 minutes, Uruguay won the corner from which they doubled their lead when Diego Laxalt's strike, which looked to be off target, cannoned off Cheryshev and bounced past Akinfeev. "As for our team, we will do our best to fulfill our own potential and to overcome our own problems as we must not fail repeating the mistakes of the past".

Suarez should have teed his strike partner up for a simple tap-in only to overhit a square pass, but Cavani eventually got his first goal of the tournament when he poked home the rebound of Godin's header in the 90th minute.

"We wanted to score a goal, and we have chances to score". "It's a great opportunity for us to test improvements in the team". He made quite the impression coming off the bench in the last match against Saudi Arabia and in keeping his place for this game Torreira backed up that performance with another impressive display.

A massive deflection off Denis Cheryshev made it 2-0, and two quick red cards for Igor Smolnikov effectively killed the game as a contest.

Salem Aldawsari scored with nearly the last kick, shooting from a tight angle inside the Egypt penalty area and poking the ball past El Hadary. The decision was confirmed after a video review.

Another substitute, Morocco forward Youssef En Nesyri, headed in a goal in the 81st minute to give already-eliminated Morocco hope of a victory. Akinfeev couldn't get a hand to it and Suarez has his second goal of the World Cup.

Take a look through the gallery above to see how Russian Federation could line up for their World Cup Group A clash with Uruguay. The Russian offensive unit as a whole was a pale shadow of the attacking force that took them to the top of the goalscoring charts after two games.

The Round of 16 begins on Saturday, June 30. The 34-year-old midfielder responded to his first start of the tournament by producing one of the more aesthetically pleasing goals of group play.

Note that in the first half of Saudi Arabia has not implemented a penalty.

The South Americans outclassed the hosts in every department to cruise to a 3-0 victory, secure top spot in the group with three wins and send their hapless opponents back to the drawing board ahead of the knockout stage.

When Russia take on Spain on Sunday, Cherchesov will find out just how useful it was.
