Uruguay have booked their place in the knockout stages of the World Cup after beating Saudi Arabia 1-0 in Rostov.

Luis Suarez's goal proved to be the difference, with the forward hitting home from six yards out in the 23rd minute.

It was a match low on quality and action as both sides toiled in vain to add to the scoreline.

From Oscar Taberez's perspective, his men will need to raise their game in the coming weeks if Uruguay are to stand any chance of progressing into the latter stages of the tournament.

So how did the two teams fare? See the gallery above for our player ratings.
