    Greg: Group A has been very weak. Russia exposed against a top-shelf team. Uruguay looked half-hearted in three games yet won them all. Mohamed Salah hype means nothing for Egypt who finish bottom of the group.

  5. 'Uruguay are the real deal'

    It is the right result because the better team won. It would have been better 11 against 11, but Uruguay are the real deal. You would not be surprised if they go a lot further in this campaign. We have found out what level Russia are at.

  6. Post update

    All five of Uruguay's World Cup goals in 2018 have come via set-pieces.

  7. Post update

    Uruguay are the only team to have scored three or more goals against a home nation in a group stage game - and have done so twice, beating South Africa by the same scoreline in 2010.

    The hosts that day also had a player sent off.

    Yasman: Uruguay trashing the Russians is an indication of what we will witness in the second round when the men are separated from the boys.

  9. Post update

    Uruguay have won their last three World Cup matches against European sides (Russia, England and Italy), having failed to win any of their previous 15 (D6, L9).

  10. Good company

    Uruguay 3-0 Russia

    Edinson Cavani has become the second player to score a goal in three separate World Cup tournaments for Uruguay (2010, 2014 and 2018) after his strike partner Luis Suarez.

    They had lost those previous two games Cavani had scored in, so this is the first World Cup win he has scored in.

    They have won all five World Cup matches when Suarez has notched.

    The pair have 96 international goals between them now.

    A reality check for Russia today? It did feel like people were getting carried away a bit. Saudi Arabia and Egypt were terrible.

  17. Group A table

    So this is what Group A looks like.

    Uruguay play the runners-up in Group B - who could be Portugal. But could also be Spain. And Russia play the winners of that group. Who could be Spain. But could also be Portugal.

    Spain and Portugal are only separated by fair play, so it could still go either way. Iran could also qualify.

    Johnny Magrinho: OK so at least we know Russia are only good enough to beat teams of similar quality to Egypt and Saudi Arabia. They aren’t going to score again at this World Cup. At least the journey home won’t be that long for them.
