    FT: Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

    Rio Ferdinand

    Former England defender on BBC One

    Uruguay will be reliant on being hard to play against, being compact and being hard to beat - knowing that they have two world-class strikers at the other end, who they will back to take their chances.

    Uruguay aren't bothered about the performance, not the players or the coach, they're just result driven.

  4. 'Two of the poorest teams we've seen'

    FT: Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

    Cesc Fabregas

    Chelsea and Spain midfielder on BBC One

    Saudi Arabia play very well from the back, they have a few decent players, but they didn't want to get the ball in the box for some reason.

    Saudi Arabia and Egypt are two of the poorest teams we've seen at the tournament.

    Sam Cross: Saudi Arabia vs Egypt next Monday anyone? Surely the deadest of dead rubbers.

    Lee Fergusson: Saudi Arabia and Egypt are the first two teams out. No great those two - both pretty poor.

  6. 'Uruguay are my dark horses'

    Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

    Stephen Warnock

    Ex-Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Uruguay are very resilient in the way they play. With Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez they can score goals.

    They are my dark horses for the competition. They have put in a real strong performance, but it was a disappointing performance from Saudi Arabia.

    Saudi Arabia had a lack of drive and an acceptance they were going home.

    It was a nice finish from Suarez on his 100th cap for Uruguay and they also look strong in defence.

  8. 'Not the best game'

    FT: Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

    Didier Drogba

    Phoenix Rising and former Ivory Coast striker on BBC One

    That's not the best game we've seen at this World Cup. I think Uruguay were happy to win 1-0 today, but I think they will improve.

  9. FULL-TIME

    Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

    All over, Luis Suarez's first-half goal wins it.

    Uruguay and Russia into the knockout stages, Egypt and Saudi Arabia heading home.

    Luis Suarez
  10. Post update

    Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

    Saudi Arabia have a free-kick down the right, time to lump it into the mixer.

    Instead, they play a cross-field ball towards the left back.

    They deserve to go home for that alone.

  11. 'Uruguay's success will be built on their two centre-halves'

    Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

    Phil Neville

    Former England & Man Utd defender on BBC One

    Uruguay's success will be built on their two centre-halves. They're one of the best defensive partnerships in world football in Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez. They compliment each other really well.

    Diego Godin

    Anthony Pletin: This Uruguay team is criminally overrated.

  13. CLOSE!

    Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

    This could have flown in!

    Yasser Al Shahrani works some room then strikes a right-footed shot which is heading wide, but takes a deflection off Diego Godin.

    Thankfully for Fernando Muslera, the pace is taken off the ball and he can re-adjust to collect.

  14. INJURY TIME

    Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

    FOUR more minutes for us to endure.

  15. Post update

    Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

    Salman Al Faraj clips in the corner which Mohamed Kanno rises highest to meet, but again it is comfortable for Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.

  16. Post update

    Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

    Saudi Arabia have a late corner.

    The goalkeeper is not going up for it.

  17. 'They're almost happy to lose 1-0'

    Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

    Phil Neville

    Former England & Man Utd defender on BBC One

    You feel like Saudi Arabia have played just for pride today, just to not get hammered again, because they came under some heavy criticism after that 5-0 defeat to Russia. They're almost happy to lose 1-0.
