After an intense match, Saudi Arabia loses 1-0 to Uruguay.

Salah was always a doubt to replicate his Liverpool form for Egypt at the World Cup after he suffered a shoulder injury at the hands of Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos in the Uefa Champions League final last month.

They are expected to struggle again on Wednesday, with Uruguay eyeing up a second win after securing a late 1-0 victory over Morocco in their first game.

But Pizzi claimed Saudi Arabia had been given no clarification over what happened.

"What we wanted was to win and move on to the next phase".

The win gives Uruguay six points from two matches, trailing leaders Russian Federation - also with six points - only on goal difference.

Footage that showed fire shooting from the engines underneath the wings was uploaded to Twitter after the plane had landed.




Chelsea star Cesc Fàbregas has criticized Egypt and Saudi Arabia's performances at the 2018 World Cup.

Carlos Sanchez - who plays his football in Mexico - and Cristian Rodriguez - who plays for Penarol in Uruguay - are in.

Saudi Arabia are set to face Uruguay on Wednesday at the Rostov Arena before finishing the group stages with a clash against Egypt next Monday.

The stadium burst into life in the 23rd minute however, when an unmarked Suarez coolly tapped into an empty net from a corner kick after keeper Al-Owais came out but misjudged his jump and couldn't reach the ball.

It was a fitting way for the Barcelona forward to mark his 100th worldwide appearance and he will be hoping to go further in the World Cup after exiting the last two in disgrace after being sent off for a goal-line handball against Ghana in 2010, and infamously biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in 2014.

The Saudis continued to move the ball around but barely threatened the typically gritty Uruguay defence.
