Uruguay has won Group A at the World Cup with its third straight shutout of the tournament, beating host Russia, 3-0 in Samara.

Russia fell behind, 2-0, then lost all chance when it was reduced to 10 men after Igor Smolnikov got a second yellow card.

Both sides are safely through to the knockout stages after two wins from two and are aiming to finish top of the group.

Edinson Cavani scored the third goal for Uruguay at the 90th minute.
