Luis Suarez celebrated winning his 100th cap with Uruguay with a goal as he scored the winner in a 1-0 victory over Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.

The Barcelona star fired home at the back post after being left unmarked at a corner midway through the first half.

It was his 52nd international goal and saw him become the first Uruguayan to score in three different World Cups.

Uruguay were expected to win the game a bit more comfortably than they did, but they did enough and qualify for the knockout stages along with Russia.
