This, really, isn’t what Saudi Arabia needed. After giving up five goals in its loss to Russia, the lowest-ranked World Cup team, next up for the Saudis is Uruguay, a South American power with stars Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. And, as if that weren’t enough, Uruguay figures to be testy after squeaking past Egypt, 1-0, on a late goal, after Suarez missed on three chances.
There is a bright spot, though. The second-lowest ranked World Cup team, Saudi Arabia has never lost to Uruguay, winning a friendly in 2002 and playing to a draw in 2014 friendly.
“We need to keep a cool head,” defender Jose Gimenez, who scored in the 89th minute against Egypt, told reporters (via Reuters). “We know that any game here is very hard, and we need to think of it that way.”
If you’re going to wager on this year’s Golden Boot winner (and want someone other than Cristiano Ronaldo in a desperate attempt to throw your money away at this point), Suarez might be a good place to park your money. That’s assuming he picks up the pace and fares better than he did in 2014 in Brazil, where he was barred from the tournament after biting an opponent, or in 2010 in South Africa, where he was crushed for drawing a red card in a victory.
