The Uruguay national football team announces the squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia with the following players:
Goalkeepers: Martin Campana (Independiente), Fernando Muslera (Galatasaray), Martin Silva (Vasco da Gama).
Defenders: Diego Godin (Atletico), Sebastian Coates (Sporting), Jose Gimenez (Atletico), Maxi Pereira (Porto), Gaston Silva (Independiente), Martin Caceres (Lazio), Guillermo Varela (Penarol).
Midfielders: Nahitan Nandez (Boca Juniors), Lucas Torreira (Sampdoria), Matias Vecino (Inter), Rodrigo Bentancur (Juventus), Carlos Sanchez (Monterrey), Giorgian de Arrascaeta (Cruzeiro), Diego Laxalt (Genoa), Cristian Rodriguez (Penarol), Jonathan Urretaviscaya (Monterrey).
Forwards: Cristhian Stuani (Girona), Maxi Gomez (Celta), Edinson Cavani (PSG), Luis Suarez (Barcelona).
Uruguay is an obvious favourite of Group A and, by certain circumstances, quite capable to fight for the World Cup medals.
In the defensive line of Uruguay there are well playing together Godin and Gimenez from the Atletico Madrid. The representatives of the Italian Serie A Matias Vecino and Rodrigo Bentancur set the tone in midfielders. The main force of Uruguay is attack. The star trio of forwards Gomez-Suarez-Cavani scored over 90 goals during the season. Perhaps, the names of the attacking line of the Uruguay national team make up the five strongest in the World Cup. The fourth forward of Uruguay Christian Stuani is also enters the five top scorers of the Spanish La Liga.
Another best card of the team is its head coach. The most experienced Oscar Tabarez has headed the Uruguay national team for over 10 years and knows perfectly both possibilities of his footballers and the Uruguayan football in general.
