Uruguay Squad Named For Ecuador & Argentina World Cup Qualifiers
Oscar Washington Tabarez, the coach of the Uruguayannational team, has announced his squad to face Ecuadorand Argentina in two crucial 2010 World Cup qualifiers next month.
Uruguay will count with all of their stars, including Diego Forlan of Atletico Madrid, Cristian Rodriguez of FC Porto, Diego Lugano of Fenerbahce and Luis Suarez of Ajax Amsterdam.
The newcomers are Maurico Victorino of Universidad de Chile, Diego Arismendi of Stoke City and Maximiliano Pereira of Benfica.
The two-time world champions still have good possibilities of reaching South Africa, but a defeat to Ecuador in Quito will eliminate them from the running.
However, if they win or draw that match a victory over Argentina in Montevideo four days later will see them qualify for their first World Cup since 2002.
