With both sides already qualified for the last 16 of the tournament, Uruguay finished top of Group A after a 3-0 win over Russia on Monday, helped along by a first-half red card to Igor Smolnikov.
The Uruguayans were already two goals to the good by that point, but were then even better placed to stroll to their third victory out of three World Cup matches.
Luis Suárez opened the scoring from a free kick, with an own goal from Denis Cheryshev completing the scoring before Edinson Cavani’s first goal of the tournament.
These were the best jokes from Uruguay 3-0 Russia:

Found myself humming Russia's national anthem, which forced me to ask: "How do I know this?"…then it dawned on me…Rocky IV #URURUS

Nothing looks more awkward and embarrassing than a face-painted fan whose team is being thumped. #URURUS

If anything this first half shows the dosing needs some adjustment against higher ranked teams #URURUS

If Russia doesn't score soon the players might discover that their families have been #Putin prison.
