Uruguay Announce World Cup Squad

Uruguay coach, Oscar Tabarez, has announced his provisional 25-man World Cup squad on Monday evening.

The spark of the squad is Uruguay’s forward line, which includes Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani and Diego Forlan, who won the Golden Ball at the 2010 World Cup.

Uruguay won the World Cup twice, including the first ever tournament in 1930 as host, defeating Argentina 4-2 in the final. They won their second title in 1950, upsetting hosts Brazil 2-1 infront of over 200.000 fans at the Maracana stadium.

They surprised many by reaching the semi-final in 2010 and will face Costa Rica, England and Italy in Group D this time around.

Fernando Muslera (Galatasaray/Turkey), Martin Silva (Vasco Da Gama/Brazil), Rodrigo Munoz (Libertad/Paraguay)
