Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia 1-0 Highlights Download 20 June 2018 World Cup
Saudi Arabia will certainly be looking to deliver a monumental upset at Rostov Arena; in their two previous meetings, they are undefeated against their opponents, though both of those fixtures were home friendlies. Having gone down 5-0 against Russia in their opening game, Juan Antonio Pizzi faces the unenviable task of restoring confidence to his side against a World Cup dark horse – and he will take motivation from the knowledge that only a win can keep them from boarding an early plane home.
Oscar Tabarez’s side left it until the last to start off with a win against Egypt in the second game of Group A; Jose Gimenez’s strike in the 90th minute was the latest winner in a World Cup for Uruguay since Daniel Fonseca netted against South Korea at Italy 1990. Against the second-lowest ranked nation in the tournament, they will be hopeful of a more comfortable margin of victory – but one thing Russia 2018 has shown is to never write off the underdog.
