"It's a World Cup". Saudi Arabia battle Uruguay the following day in Rostov.

Midfielder Yuri Zhirkov said: "We played well, controlled the ball".

The problem is, BeIN Sports has been unable to shut down the BeoutQ signal, and the pirate network has continued to operate during the World Cup, which started on Thursday with the Russia-Saudi Arabia opener.

The Middle Eastern nation had a disastrous display and were widely labelled as one of the worst nation to ever perform at the World Cup finals. "I have the philosophy that in my job I always try to do my best", Pizzi told a press conference after the match at Luzhniki Stadium on Thursday. "I will continue working as I am".

Saudi Arabia was the biggest disappointment in the first matches of the World Cup, as it lost 5-0 to Russian Federation in the opening match of the tournament. "This result is totally unsatisfactory, because it does not reflect the true level of our preparedness", a local media, Al-Youm Assabaa newspaper quoted the FA President as saying.


'Several players will face a penalty - goalkeeper Abdullah Al-Mayouf, striker Mohammad Al-Sahlawi and defender Omar Hawsawi'.

Turki al-Sheikh, the country's sports authority chief, also hit out at the players, complaining in a video posted on Twitter that the players put in "less than five per cent effort". Once again, I could feel the energy that inspired me for many years.

After Uruguay's first winning start at a World Cup in almost half a century and Saudi Arabia's disastrous opener, the South Americans are guarding against complacency before Wednesday's second Group A clash.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt imposed a boycott on Qatar in June 2017, severing diplomatic and transport ties with Doha.

"I have never done anything like this", Cheryshev said.
