The first day of Matchday 3 brought concurrent matches in Groups A and B, and thus double the excitement. Uruguay won the race for first in Group A against Russia, thanks to Edinson Cavani and company, while Egypt and Saudi Arabia brought life to what essentially was a third-place match with an exciting 2-1 win for the latter. Portugal somehow ended up with second place in Group B with a 1-1 draw against Iran, while Spain stole first with a late equalizer to make it 2-2 vs. Morocco.
Russia’s confidence was brought down a peg by visitors Uruguay, as the host nation was trampled, 3-0. Luis Suarez started the scoring early and Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani topped it off with a 90′ minute goal. Cavani goes from 89 up one to 90 overall. Saudi Arabia came from behind to win it against Egypt, thanks to a late, late goal from Salem Al Dawsari in the 94′ minute. Al Dawsari sees a huge jump from 70 overall to 78 in his last World Cup mode bump with his team eliminated.
Iranian goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand saved a penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo, who failed to capitalise after a wonderstrike from Ricardo Quaresma, and Iran scored a late one to make it 1-1 against surprise Group B runners-up Portugal, who had the group seemingly locked up until VAR awarded a late penalty to Iran. Spain tied it up very late to make it 2-2 against a hearty Moroccan team, as Dani Carvajal queued it up on a silver platter for Celta de Vigo’s Iago Aspas, who ensured entry to the knockouts as the top seed for Spain after a contentious VAR situation of their own involving an overrule of an initial offsides call on Aspas’ goal.
Beiranvand’s second FUT World Cup Man of the Match, a first in this year’s game mode, sees him go up to a final rating of 84 overall from 82 (after initially starting out a base 75) with Quaresma jumping from 83 to 85. Aspas’ also increases from 83 to 85 overall.
