Uruguay’s starting XI
Darwin Nunez (LW/ST) – Darwin Nunez has scored some goals for Liverpool of late. But he still needs to give his skills to get the best out of himself.
Luis Suarez (ST) – The former Catalan may have downgraded in terms of league competition, but he still has the mad skills. He can lead Uruguay as captain in the upcoming tournament.
Edinson Cavani (RW/ST) – Valencia has not had a good season, not to mention Edinson Cavani has yet to show what he is capable of at his new club.
Rodrigo Bentancur and Lucas Torreira (LM/CM) – Tottenham Hotspur are third in the Premier League points table thanks to Bentancur’s big help. He and Fede Valverde will be supported by Galatasaray’s Lucas Torreira.
Fede Valverde (AMF/CM/RM/CDM) – Looking at his recent performances, the Real Madrid midfielder is undoubtedly the top 5 midfielder in the world right now. He has scored seven goals and two assists this season.
Ronald Araujo (CB) – Barcelona are doing well in La Liga. Ronald Araujo’s presence in the team’s support has helped the defense a lot as he has improved a lot in the last few months.
