Uruguay Beats 10-man Russia 3-0 to Finish Top of Group A

Samara, Uruguay were comfortable 3-0 winners over 10-man Russia in Samara on Monday to finish top of Group A at the World Cup.

Scores from Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani sandwiched Denis Cheryshev's own goal in a match of previously unbeaten sides already qualified for the knockout stages, dpa reported.

Russia finished a man down after Igor Smolnikov was shown his second yellow card in the 39th minute. Uruguay will face the runner-up from Group B in the last 16, June 30 in Sochi, but the second-placed Russians will now remain in Moscow.

They will take on the Group B winner on July 1.

Beating all-losing Egypt 2-1 at the same time, Saudi Arabia ranked third of Group A but en route home.
