Saudi Arabian World Cup team's plane catches fire in midair

Saudi Arabia plane's engine catches fire

The national anthems have been completed and we're moments away from this Group A clash.

Our man on the scene Tancredi Palmeri gives us the rundown of the sides!

Uruguay beat a 48-year curse of failing to win a World Cup finals opener on Friday, but needed an 89th-minute header to do so.

Uruguay looked compact and composed in their opening game against Egypt, and will be quietly confident of picking up the second win of the tournament.

Suarez will hope to make amends for that thoroughly underwhelming display on Wednesday, when Uruguay's all-time leading scorer and sixth most-capped player will make his 100th senior worldwide appearance in Rostov-on-Don against a lowly Saudi team that looked woeful as they were thrashed 5-0 by hosts Russian Federation on the opening day of the tournament. Godin and Gimenez combine to clear the threat.

3': Patience seems to be the key word for both the sides.

The duo showed glimpses of their quality against Egypt, both players will be targeting to open their World Cup account against a Saudi side who looked completely out of their depth in their opener.

"There is no doubt that facing the Uruguayan team is hard and that it is known for its worldwide stars, but we are determined to improve our image from the previous match and the joy of the Saudi fans", said Saudi Arabia midfielder Taisir Al-Jassim.

Despite only 3.4 million people to choose from, Uruguay have long punched above their weight in worldwide soccer, lifting the first ever World Cup in 1930 and producing the infamous "Maracanazo" by beating hosts Brazil to win it again in 1950.

Simply put, Saudi must improve defensively especially at set-pieces. The winger enjoyed a brief stint in La Liga with Levante during the second half of the season and could be given the nod against the La Celeste. Uruguay in black and blue, Saudi Arabia in whites.

9': Saudi Arabia have come out with a plan to be aggressive and get upfront early on.

In the United States (US), the game can be watched live and on-demand with fuboTV (7-day free trial).
