Luis Suárez sends Uruguay through with victory over Saudi Arabia

Uruguay face Saudi Arabia in Rostov-on-Don

"We still have a game to play against Saudi Arabia and we will give our all in that game but our chances (of going to the second round) are minimal", Cuper said.

Saudi Arabia faced host country Russian Federation in their opener and not only lost, but got blown out by a final score of 5-0.

The Saudi Arabia national team, now playing in the FIFA World Cup 2018, survived a scare after their plane caught fire mid-air.

Luis Suarez marked his 100th global cap by sending Uruguay into the last 16 of the World Cup as the striker benefited from some poor goalkeeping to eliminate Saudi Arabia with a 1-0 win on Wednesday. However, a Saudi Arabia victory will make the final group game for them and Uruguay the determining factor for advancing.

Saudi Arabia, who suffered a minor scare when an engine on their plane caught fire before landing on Rostov-on-Don on Monday, instead have not found the back of the net in their last four World Cup outings.

Maybe Saudi Arabia isn't the worst team at the World Cup?

"They are an excellent team and they have many players but we need to focus on being competitive and think of ourselves", he said. With the "Fubo Premier" bundle, you will get access to all four of the World Cup soccer TV channels in most markets.

"Of course, we would have preferred if he had not been injured but it would have been especially good if he had been able to train with the team for the three weeks we had at the same intensity as the other players".

Rodriguez will make his 107th appearance for Uruguay on Wednesday while striker Luis Suarez will rack up a century of appearances for the national team and goalkeeper Fernando Muslera will reach 99 games.

Edinson Carvani almost finished the deal in the 86th minute but Al Owais stopped his shot after a Saudi defender lost the ball at the edge of the box. "Unfortunately we didn't create the opportunity we needed to equalize".
