Uruguay reached the knockout stage with a 1-0 victory over Saudi Arabia on Wednesday as Suarez scored the only goal of the match.Despite the ‘ugly’ win manager Oscar Tabarez was unapologetic.“The only thing that surprised me was the low level of my team in the first half, we were very far from our usual level, and you could say that’s because Saudi Arabia made it hard for us,” Tabarez told reporters.“Some people might think that winning these matches is easy. People were talking about Russia, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia without really knowing.“I believe that in this World Cup we’ve seen so many surprises so far that we can’t take things for granted. Remember in the past when we saw scoreboards of 10-1 in a World Cup? You don’t see that very much anymore.”
