Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia Team News
Suarez will be waiting to take part in his 100th cap for Uruguay, I do not expect any changes in the squad.
Muslera , Caceres, Godin, Gimenez, Varela , Rodriguez, Vecino, Bentancur, Nandez , Cavani, Suarez.
Saudi Arabia could make some changes following their dreadful opener, but captain Osama Hawsawi will remain at the back for them, and it’s unlikely that top scorer Mohammad Al-Sahlawi will relinquish his place up front.
