Luis Suarez of Uruguay celebrates after scoring his team's first goal during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group A match between Uruguay and Saudi Arabia at Rostov Arena on June 20, 2018 in Rostov-on-Don, Russia.

The South American's may have been expecting to win by more considering how disappointing the Saudi's were against the hosts Russian Federation on the opening day of the tournament, but they had to settle for just the one goal, but the most important thing was gaining the three points to seal qualification to the knockout rounds.
