2018 FIFA World Cup

Uruguay has a chance to make it out of the group stages for the third straight World Cup.

When a team loses the ball, players must be able to track back into defensive positions and apply pressure to the opponents to try and win back possession.

The Opening Match of the global sports event took place in Moscow and resulted in victory of the Russian national team over Saudi Arabia.

As Russia made a dream start to the World Cup at home, courtesy Yury Gazinsky and Denis Cheryshev, Pizzi conceded that they actually did not have to make a huge effort against Saudi.

Cherchesov's team entered the match at Moscow's 80,000-seat Luzhniki Stadium under intense pressure to put on a worthy performance.

Three Saudi Arabia players will face punishment after their disastrous opening-day World Cup defeat by hosts Russian Federation. "I can't worry about decisions that are out of my control".

Speaking to Al-Youm Assabaa newspaper, the Saudi FA chief said; 'We are very disappointed by the defeat.

'This result is totally unsatisfactory, because it does not reflect the true level of our preparedness, ' Ezzat said. The other standout performer for Russian Federation was Denis Cheryshev, who scored twice, with the second a wonderful shot with the outside of his left boot that arced over the head of the Saudi Arabia goalkeeper, Abdullah al-Mayouf, and into the top corner.

In addition, Chairman of the General Sport Authority, Turki bin Abdulmohsen Al-Sheikh, described the game as a 'total fiasco'.

"But Saudi Arabia are still strong".

After Uruguay's first winning start at a World Cup in almost half a century and Saudi Arabia's disastrous opener, the South Americans are guarding against complacency before Wednesday's second Group A clash. "I'm just grateful to be alongside Luis", Varela said. He then scored two goals.
