Watch: Russia Player Inadvertently Helps Luis Suarez To Score A Free-Kick

Luis Suarez bagged his second goal of the World Cup thanks to some bizarre tactics from his Russian counterparts.

Uruguay made it three wins from three matches courtesy of a 3-0 victory over the tournament hosts.

Denis Cheryshev scored an own-goal with Edinson Cavani sealing the three points in the 90th minute, while Suarez netted the opening goal in the first-half.

He converted a superb free-kick, firing into the bottom corner to give his side the lead.

But a second glance at the free-kick shows a peculiar Russian manoeuvre which actually helped the Barcelona striker to find the back of the net.

As Igor Akinfeev assembled his defensive wall, a Russian player was floating on the end who eventually pushed two Uruguay players out of the way which created an opening for Suarez.

Twitter was left confused and baffled.

Meanwhile, Uruguay's 100% record means they've booked a spot in the next round, and will now play Portugal in a tasty World Cup fixture for a place in the quarter-final.
