Samara - Uruguay burnished their World Cup credentials with a 3-0 victory over 10-man Russian Federation on Monday, finishing top of Group A with a flawless record while damping the hopes of the tournament hosts, who had to settle for second.

Russian Federation followed their Saudi thrashing by limiting Egypt's star striker Mohamed Salah - nursing a shoulder injury but always unsafe - to one goal in an impressive 3-1 win last Tuesday in Saint Petersburg.

Two goals in the first 23 minutes and a red card for Russian Federation a little later killed off the game early.

Uruguay waited for 12 long years before the national team could celebrate goals from Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani in the same match at a World Cup.

Egypt goalkeeper Essam El Hadary, who is 45, took the field for his team's final group match to set the record. "We wanted to play in the same way we did before", Suarez told reporters after the game.

Nearly every set-piece was delivered too long, and there were so many key sloppy passes - like Yuri Gazinskiy's to begin the passage of play that led to Suarez scoring from a free-kick - or Mario Fernandes' when for once early in the second half Uruguay looked like they might be opened up.

The 6-1 win over Panama - England's largest-ever margin of victory at the World Cup - was watched by 14.1 million, which was nearly 83 percent of the TV audience in Britain.

Coach Stanislav Cherchesov insists Russia's success at the World Cup is about much more than home-team advantage.

However, without detracting from Uruguay's performance, Cherchesov had some harsh words for his own side's undisciplined display - particularly Igor Smolnikov's dismissal for a second bookable offence in the first half.

"After winning the first two matches 1-0, our goal was to get another", Suarez said.

Salem Aldawsari scored with nearly the last kick, shooting from a tight angle inside the Egypt penalty area and poking the ball past El Hadary.

Saudi Arabia finished the tournament in third place in group A, scoring three points.

Salman Alfaraj got the Saudis level with a penalty kick in first-half stoppage time after Ali Gabr brought down Fahad Almuwallad in the area.

Seeing as the Russians' next match will be against Group B winners Spain in the round of 16 on Sunday, it's hard to disagree with their manager's assessment.

The Sampdoria midfielder has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks and on this basis it's easy to see why there has been such interest in Lucas Torreira.

Uruguay are the first side to win all three of their group games without conceding a single goal since Argentina in 1998 (seven goals scored, none conceded).
