Group A Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia (KO 16:00 BBC1)

Recommended Posts

This is either going to be a boring 2-0 or a trouncing, I will go with the latter and say 4-0 - Cavani x2, Suarez and one of those other fellas to pop up with one.

Phil inducing me to go for the 5 live option again.

Think Uruguay will only get a couple tbh.

I still can't figure out in which universe Bentacur offers anything Torreira doesn't.

Especially against a team like Saudi Arabia.

It'll never be clear to me why is always Cavani that's pulled to the wing to cross the ball to Suarez when all logic say it should be reversed

As if you haven't seen them play before.

Uruguay-Portgual matchup would be a proper football game. :D

The odd Copa America match and qualifier but nothing compared to the tedium of this :eek: 

I guess the dark horse tag is a curse.

Mesmerising that Saudi's have 56% of the possession, possibly the worst team at the tournament and Uruguay are being outplayed, laughable.

You and your outplayed, in stereotypical Arsenal fan fashion.

All you do is complain about undeserved wins and teams being outplayed.

On which account? How many clear cut chances did Saudis created?

No, they're basically a NT version of Atletico.

Struggle against defensive opposition as they have no real creator in midfield, but are really dangerous against stronger teams. Their defense is among the best if we talk national teams only.

They had 59% possession against Russia. Lost 5-0 with 0 shots on target.

Barely paid any attention to this game. It just seems to keep dragging on and on.

Saudi's were of course the better side that first half outside the scoreline, they controlled the game and Uruguay looked turgid. They just lead through individual insanity, it is what is, I'm not saying Saudi's should have been 1 up. I'm just disappointed Uruguay can only muster up this pathetic showing vs. this quality opposition. 

In fairness, I am a bit of broken record in my rants this world cup. Ranting about the poor quality of the bigger teams, games in general and referees. This game has been very apt in that regard :brock:

One thing I cringe at with commentators is when they try to add that twang to foreign players' names. 

Gimenez is now 'Gimeneth'. 

Eurgh.

Me too, but looking at the schedule, this was probably is worst day of the WC.

Starting tomorrow, things should really pick up.

Alan Parry and David Pleat used to do that with David Villa as they'd call him "Davide Vijja"

I don't think Saudi Arabia have ever been the better team, it's quite easy to pass the ball round midfield if no-one is pressing, but they haven't created any chances unlike Uruguay.

I remember the 2010 group stage having a lot of poor matches, but this tournament is 'outdoing' that. It's becoming harder to focus on matches when we're served with such dirge so regularly.

You should've seen Portsmouth legend Prosinečki trying to pronounce Maguire on Croatian TV. :lol:

These commentators have been pronouncing it both ways in this game, one minute its 'Gimenez' the next its 'Gimeneth' 

They just sound like complete fools.

I actually prefer it when commentators try to pronounce foreign names 'properly' (e.g. Héctor Bellerín becomes 'Beyerin' or 'Beyereen', not 'Bellerin').
