  • Heading in the right direction

Russia's goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev (L) reacts as Luis Suarez celebrates Uruguay's second goal.

Uruguay got off to a positive start when Matias Vecino whistled a long-range effort just wide of Akinfeev's right post with less than two minutes gone as the South Americans served warning of their intent.

However, Uruguay nearly extended its lead in the 80th minute when Cavani and Suarez raced forward with only one defender to deal with. "When they feel comfortable or at home, they score goals".

There was plenty of noise from the stands - so Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera will have had many quieter games in terms of volume - but he had little work to do as he became his country's all-time leading appearance maker at the World Cup.

Group B concludes on Monday evening, with matches between Spain (4pts) and eliminated Morocco (0pts) in Kaliningrad, and Portugal (4pts) and Iran (3pts) in Saransk.

Uruguay's demanding coach Oscar Tabarez added: "We could have won by more goals, we lack experience so we didn't score on some counter-attacks when we should have", he said. Both sides are already through to the knockout stages after collecting six points from six, although team Russian Federation boast a far superior goal difference.

Cherchesov also criticised his players for not being well prepared mentally.

Not to mention, notes Recode , Amazon already collects sales tax in states around the USA when it sells directly to customers. The law calls for a one-tenth percent rate cut per $20 million in new state revenue from purchases through online retailers.

"I am pleased with my players as, after we lost a player [full-back Igor Smolnikov, sent off for two bookings], we were aggressive and showed we were real men".

Russian Federation were more enterprising in the opening 10 minutes of the second stanza but they lacked penetration in the last third to trouble the Uruguayan defence.

Saudi Arabia defeated Egypt 2-1 to finish Group A in third place with three points, while Egypt were last after losing all three games.

Defender Jose Maria Gimenez didn't play for Uruguay because of a right thigh injury.

She said that she cried when the two were reunited and that she is never going to be away from him again. However, she is also surprised that the message on her jacket "blew up in her face".

Nevertheless, Cherchesov did manage to gain some positives from his side's defeat against Uruguay, which many would regard as a reality check after easy wins over Saudi Arabia and Egypt. The team did not say when he might return. Uruguay were all over Russian Federation in this one but the hosts going down to 10 men killed any hope of a comeback altogether.
