Uruguay take nothing for granted against chastened Saudis

Russia 2018: Putin says he can’t wish Saudi Arabia success today

Al-Sheikh also personally apologised to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the heir to the Saudi throne, who watched the game with Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, in his private box.

The Saudi Arabia Football Federation have said they would punish three of their national team's players following their 5-0 drubbing by Russia at the 2018 World Cup.

Earlier it was reported that three players of the Saudi Arabian side including the forward Mohammad al-Sahlawi, defender Osama Hawsawi and goalkeeper Abdullah al-Mayouf will possibly be rebuked of the loss against the host nation.

But Cherchesov also made the right decisions with his subs as Villarreal's Denis Cheryshev came on for Dzagoev to score a brace, and Artem Dzyuba also scored off the bench, with Iury Gazinsky and Alexandr Golovin contributing the other goals.

Russia, however, were in total control and added a third when Dyzuba, totally unmarked, headed in Golovin's cross. Uruguay got 14 shot attempts overall, four of which were on target and it overcame 12 fouls in what was a physical match. Dzagoev would have to recovery quickly in order to play any further part in Russia's group games against Egypt on June 19 and Uruguay six days later. Saudi Arabia have historically fired coaches on a regular basis and have had five different people at the helm since 2013, reports Xinhua news agency.

Russia's players were significantly taller and heavier than the Saudis, a help when challenging for the ball and when the penalty area was crowded.

Russia's bench players had their day of glory. "You know our warm feelings for you, but I hope you understand that I can not hope for success for your team today and may the best team win", Putin told Prince Mohammed bin Salman. We need to keep doing that ... "You just rest well and prepare for the next game, we're fine", said Varela, whose team has travelled one of the furthest distances for the World Cup. "The opposing team did not have to make a huge effort to win".
