Luis Suárez leads way for Uruguay to spoil 10-man Russia’s party

Uruguay spoiled Russia's feel-good start to the World Cup on Monday with a comfortable 3-0 to finish top of Group A.

Sadly for the home fans, who had created a deafening din in the opening minutes, Akinfeev inexplicably vacated his bottom left corner, moving back to the side of the goal his wall was guarding and leaving space for Suarez to stroke the ball home.

The lead was quickly doubled in the 23rd minute, when Diego Laxalt unleashed a shot from distance that took a wicked deflection and went beyond goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev.

Oscar Tabarez's charges were dominating the encounter, while Russian Federation were all over the place at the back as they failed to recover from a poor start.

Coach Stanislav Cherchesov had made two more changes but they also backfired spectacularly, with Igor Smolnikov sent off in the 36th minute after a second booking, and Fyodor Kudryashov equally overworked in defense.

Edinson Cavani became just the second player to score a goal in three separate World Cup tournaments for Uruguay (2010, 2014 and 2018) after his strike partner Luis Suarez. Not because of selfishness, but because they contribute a lot.

If those options are exhausted, authorities must find the "least restrictive" setting for a child who arrived without parents. Trump's said the order does not alter the "zero tolerance" policy itself that the administration put in place in April.

The Russian defense constantly struggled with the speed of Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez, proven talents on the world stage as opposed to the Saudi and Egyptian players the Russians had put eight goals past.

It was Suarez's seventh goal in three World Cups, while it was only a third for Cavani. Sebastian Coates comes in for the injured Jose Gimenez in defence as Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez makes four changes for the clash. "We wanted to play in the same way we did before", Suarez told reporters after the game.

Cavani scored the third of the game at 90 minutes- the game finished 3-0 in favour of Uruguay. "I like how my team played after we lost one player". Tomorrow's match will decide on the victor of their Group A, which also enrolls the teams from Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

As winners of Group A, Uruguay go on to face the Group B runners-up in the round-of-16, which at this time of writing could be any of three teams: Spain, Portugal and Iran. That game will take place on Sunday in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

There was very little doubt about who would win this game after an early period in which Russian Federation were blown away.
