Suarez’s free-kick was fully acquired in the lower-right corner only in the 11th minute.

After this, after Igor Smolnikov of Russia got the red card, the team started to pressurize. Laxalt got a lucky deflection off his sixth goal of the tournament to achieve a 2-0 lead in the first half, which matches the record for his goals.

With this win, the South American team has become the first team of Group A to be included in the last 16.

Cavani’s tap-in completed the major scoreline on death, but it cannot be all bad for Russia.

The hosts tried a lot in the first 10 minutes but failed to stick to it, on the other hand, Uruguay felt comfortable at the ball and was awarded two times for their fantastic game.

The hosts have started the tournament by defeating Egypt and Saudi Arabia in their opening two matches, but the real test for hosts will be when they take the 14th ranking team in their final group stage encounter.

The host nation can play Spain or Portugal in the 16th round, but by eliminating the other, it could potentially escape from Brazil, Germany, Belgium and other big names by going on the opposite side of the bracket.

It seems that things work in their favour, but Russia should be happy to move forward and get the opportunity to see this film and try to make improvements.

We must know who will play next, Spain will face Morocco, on the other hand, Iran will clash with Portugal on the other hand.
