Fernando Muslera Thanks Lazio Ahead Of His Debut Start For Uruguay
After being tracked by the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United, it seems the commanding performances of Fernando Muslera between the Lazio posts have also been spotted by his national side, as the Uruguayan gets set to make his debut start for the La Celeste Olimpica.
“I believe,” Muslera declared to Lazialita.it, ahead of the crunch tie for the Charruas.
“The fact I am here is also down to Lazio. I have great that we will pick up points this evening, and either a draw or a victory would leave us with a golden chance to qualify for South Africa.”
With the South American round of qualifying set to conclude on Wednesday, Muslera remained focused on task after being handed the gloves from former no.1 Juan Castillo.
“The desire to play is massive and Uruguay have a number of top ‘keepers. However, all that matters is that we all focus on bringing the Celeste Olimpica to the World Cup. We are navigating a difficult moment in the Eliminatorias and we must be intelligent to come through in the best way possible.”
