As a team, we’re thinking about what’s best for the squad as that’s what’s most important.”“I also want to recognise all the Uruguayans who have made the effort to come out here and we’ve been able to return that effort with today’s result.”By defeating Russia, Uruguay sealed their spot in the last 16 as group winners and now await a draw against either Portugal or Spain. #URURUS | @Uruguay le ganó 3-0 a @TeamRussia, en el Arena Samara, y clasificó a octavos de final en la primera ubicación del Grupo A con 9 unidades. https://t.co/4ADSDv1Pix pic.twitter.com/HNpAGOzciL— Selección Uruguaya (@Uruguay) June 25, 2018Scotland needs a hero: Billy Dodds Manuel R. Medina – September 10, 2019 According to former striker, Billy Dodds his country needs a hero to inspire future generations as the team’s hope to qualify to the EURO 2020 is small.Suarez opened the scoring today before an own goal doubled their lead and Edison Cavani tapped home late on to complete a comfortable victory over the tournament hosts.The Barcelona striker added: “It’s obviously what we wanted, we wanted to keep growing throughout the World Cup and after winning two matches 1-0, today we wanted to do even better. We wanted to play in the same way we did before,”Uruguay seems to be hitting their stride just at the right time and have yet to concede a goal in Russia. Although they will face a tougher test in the next round, they have proved they will be extremely difficult to beat and could be dark horses for the trophy if they get through.
