Kick-off: 6.00pm local Uruguay v Russia was Match 33 of the FIFA World Cup 2018 Refereeing team: Referee: Malang Diedhiou (Senegal) Assistant Referee 1: Djibril Camara (Senegal) Assistant Referee 2: El Hadji Samba (Senegal) Fourth Official: Bamlak Tessema (Ethiopia) Reserve AR: Hasan Al-Mahri (United Arab Emirates) VAR: Clement Turpin (France) Uruguay finished at the top of Group A with Russia as runners-up. Uruguay became the first nation to win all of their three group games at the World Cup finals without conceding a goal since Argentina in 1998, and the fifth to do so since four team groups were introduced. Russia became the first European nation to fail to top their group as the World Cup finals host since Spain in 1982. With 30 games still to play, Denis Cheryshev's own goal was the sixth own goal at this World Cup finals to equal the record for a completed tournament (also 1998). Igor Smolnikov became the first outfield player to be sent-off for the host nation at the World Cup finals since Marcel Desailly for France in 1998 against Brazil. On the day he became a 21 year-old, Rodrigo Bentancur became the second-ever player to receive a card on his birthday at the World Cup finals; also Italy's Gianfranco Zola received a red card on his 28th birthday against Nigeria in 1994. Fernando Muslera made his 100th appearance for Uruguay in this game.
