Carlos Sanchez 6.5 

Made to work down the wing, an area where his lack of pace at times appeared to work against his side’s attacks. The diminutive midfielder found more positive moments as he drifted in to midfield, intensely pressurising the Saudi players to reclaim possession for his team.

Matias Vecino 5.5 

Shaky at times with the ball but was impressive with his distribution. Replaced by Lucas Torreira.

Rodrigo Betancur 6 

Constantly involved in the build-up and looked to get on the ball to allow his team to move forward. Rarely took full control of the game though.

Cristian Rodriguez 7 

Several of Uruguay’s successful chances were conjured by the former Atletico Madrid man, as his runs in behind Al-Berik created trouble for the Saudis.

Edinson Cavani 6 

Provided some magical creativity at times and defended from the front relentlessly.

Luis Suarez 7 

Looked significantly sharper from the offset in comparison to his side’s opening match and earned a goal due to some truly poor goalkeeping.


Diego Laxalt 6 

Immediately looked to get on the ball and work it into key areas for his side.

Lucas Torreira 6 

Given time to impress on the world stage after a fantastic season with Sampdoria in Serie A.

Nahitan Nandez N/A 

Not given enough time to impress.
