Uruguay and Saudi Arabia clash with each other in a Group A encounter at FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia.
Two-time World Cup champions Uruguay had to scrap the three points from Egypt after a hard-fought game. They created the majority of chances but couldn’t finish them, and this will be a troubling stat for their coach Oscar Martinez.
Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani did work well in tandem but sometimes appeared frustrated whenever their team lost balls in the midfield.
However, they were solid in defence and the partnership between Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez were formidable and didn’t allow their opponent much space.
Saudi Arabia, on the other hand, was humiliated by Hosts Russia by thumping scoreline of 5-0. None of their players turned up to play and they were outplayed by their opponent in every department.
Maybe the stage was a bit too big for the players to get around or the nerves got the better of them, but these excuses can’t be used when your team is playing the FIFA World Cup, and the entire nation is watching.
Regardless of the scoreline, Saudi Arabia needs to redeem themselves and show that they did deserve to earn their spot in this tournament.
