Russia falls to Uruguay
Russia were finally put to the test today when they faced Uruguay in their final group stage fixture. Uruguay came out hot putting in two goals after 23 minutes. Uruguay always controlled the game, but Russia still played to avoid humiliation. Russia never gave up, even after being limited to 10 men after 36 minutes. Uruguay were more clinical today than Russia and time will only tell how that places them in the knockout stages. Uruguay will face the runner-up in Group B, as Russia will face Group B winner. One would suggest that Spain and Portugal will advance from Group B, but Iran could shock Portugal today and punch their ticket to the Round of 16. Uruguay finish the group stage without conceding a single goal, scoring 5 goals and collecting 9 points. An impressive match today from Uruguay after a couple of shaky 3 points in each of their previous matches. Uruguay has put themselves in the best possible position after the group stage. Russia and Uruguay await their fates at the end of today's Group B matches.
90'
Uruguay Substitution
Uruguay makes its final substitution of the game after taking out their most recent goal scorer, Edinson Cavani and replacing him with Maxi Gomez. Seems like a curtain call for the veteran striker.
90'
Uruguay- GOAL
Edinson Cavani puts in a rebound off of Akinfeev off from a corner! Godin wins the initial header from the corner that requires Akinfeev to make a diving effort, but gives up a rebound to Cavani in the six-yard box. Uruguay up 3-0 with only stoppage time remaining!

Host crowd gets louder!

85'
Smolov creates chance!
Fedor Smolov leads a Russian attack into the Uruguayan box. Smolov dribbles the ball to the end line to find a low cross into the six-yard box. Muslera gathers the trouble to end Russia's hopes in scoring before 90 minutes.
81'
Suarez: Unselfish
Luis Suarez leads a Uruguayan counter attack that stretches Russia's defenders to a point where Suarez creates space to find Cavani far post. Suarez's pass has too much on it misses Cavani's feet for a chance on goal.
79'
Russia's 2nd half
Russia has been the better side in the second half today. Uruguay has taken a calm, relaxed approach to the 2nd half that sees their side still yet to concede in the World Cup. Russia has pressed the defense to create turnovers, but the final product isn't there today for the hosts.
74'
Russia pressing!
Russia are forcing Uruguay's back four into some difficult decisions. Dzyuba's pressure on Muslera leads to a clearance straight to Russia's Alexander Samedov to catch Uruguay on the break. His distribution gives Dzyuba a chance in the box, where his left footed shot doesn't curl enough to the far post to find the frame.
73'
Substitution
Cristian Rodriguez (on). Nahitan Nandez (off). (Uruguay)
72'

Dzyuba, BIG MAN
Artem Dzyuba is working hard in every aerial battle this game. He's trying to give Russia some bit of hope and pride as they finish their last group stage game. He's getting called for fouls when he throws his size around amongst the Uruguayan defenders. Dzyuba and Godin is a great matchup to watch.
68'
Time wasting warnings
Fernando Muslera has been warned by Diedhiou for potential time wasting on the following goal kick.
64'
Opportunity Uruguay
Edinson Cavani finds space along the Russian backline inside the penalty box, but is closed down immediately by the defender who makes a little more contact that forces Cavani to his knees looking for the penalty. Referee remains unmoved and play continues.

Host crowd will not stay quiet!
Uruguay are in the driver's seat, but don't tell that to the Russian fans! These fans know that this team needs their passion and support to keep Russia believing.
50'
Second Half Game Plan
Uruguay are sitting in a good position with a 2-0 lead over the 10-man Russia with 40 minutes still to play. Uruguay seemed to have won the group, but finishing the game smart is key. Uruguay needs to put themselves in a good position in the Round of 16. Russia needs to also prepare for the knockout stages. Having used two substitutions already, Russia need to preserve their energy at times.
46'
Second half begins
Russia has made their second substitution of the game. Daler Kuziaev comes in the game for midfielder, Iury Gazinsky to start the second half.

HALFTIME: Uruguay 2, Russia 0
After the first 45 minutes, Uruguay lead the hosts by two goals. Suarez put Uruguay up after ten minutes from a simple free kick. After 22 minutes, Russia found themselves down by two after a deflection off a defender beat Akinfeev near post. But it didn't end there! Things got worse for the host country in the 36th minute. Defender Igor Smolnikov picked up his second yellow card of the first half to leave Russia to finish the game with only 10 men.
38'
Russia Substitution
Russia make the first substitution of the game with Denis Cheryshev coming off for Mario Fernandes in the 38th minute. Uruguay are in control as the first half comes to an end. Switching the ball and keeping possession slows the game down forcing Russia to chase at certain moments. Dzyuba is set to run a lot today if he plays up front for the rest of the game.

Roar of the crowd!
The roar is infectious! Russia have found themselves finding little moments to break on the counter attack. They've found a couple of shots, but nothing more than a corner. Dzyuba recorded a shot off-target with a header from a corner. Dzyuba got away with a slight push in the back on the defender in front, but no whistle. Goal kick.
13'
Russia threatening
Artem Dzyuba is an excellent target up top. Winning the aerial battles has put Russia in a fantastic opportunity. Denis Cheryshev takes a quick shot straight to Muslera on a quick reaction. Dzyuba was vital in creating that chance for Cheryshev.
