Uruguay are aiming become the final team to reach the World Cup finals after 5-0 win over Jordan in the first leg of the play-offs.
Uruguay had a disappointing qualifying campaign so far, but they are close to putting that behind them due to the incredible quality at their disposal. Even before the match against Jordan started, they were the favourites to go through and they lived up to this expectation by securing this comfortable victory. Ahead of the second leg, Uruguay manager Oscar Tabarez has said that the players should not allow this result to distract them.
Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani has said that the nation should be treating all the remaining World Cup qualifiers with the greatest amount of importance because only then they will be able to reach the 2014 World Cup.
Uruguay come on the back of the 2-1 victory over Peru in the first World Cup qualifying match of September. They will be taking on Columbia, which will be an extremely difficult match on Wednesday. Ahead of this match, Cavani has spoken about the importance of taking a victory from this match in order to confirm they are berth in the World Cup 2014.
Edinson Cavani is regarded as one of the best footballers in Uruguay at the moment. He recently proved this by making a £ 55 million move to French club PSG. Prior to the move to PSG, Cavani was wanted by a number of high-profile clubs like Chelsea and Real Madrid.
The move to PSG has made him one of the best paid footballers in the world. The player, though, did not want to move away from Napoli according to his father. The player moved to Napoli back in 2010 from Palermo. Even though he was not extraordinary at Palermo, he become one of the best footballers in the world at Napoli.
The Chief Executive of the Professional footballers Association, Gordon Taylor, has said that Liverpool striker Luis Suarez deserves his place in the PFA nominations after a fantastic season.
The Uruguay striker is one among the six candidates for the PFA player of the year award. He has managed to score 20 league goals this season. Even though it has not helped Liverpool get into the top four, it has been extremely important in the club finishing in the top 10 of the table. Suarez, though, has been involved in several controversies recently.
After suffering yet another defeat in the World Cup qualifying matches, Uruguay are in danger of missing out on the FIFA World Cup 2014 despite having a star studded squad that includes the likes of Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez.
After the recent 2-0 defeat against Chile, manager Oscar Tabarez said that he is still hopeful that the team can qualify for the showpiece event, which will take place in South America after a long time. Only the top four teams from the South American region qualify automatically for the World Cup, while the fifth placed team has to go through a play-off.
The Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has revealed that he is ready to talk with Liverpool over the possibility of a new deal after insisting that he is extremely happy at the club.
Oscar Washington Tabarez, who is the manager of the Uruguay national team, has said that he is extremely glad that Uruguay are taking part in the Confederations Cup. After winning the Copa America recently, Uruguay will have the opportunity to make a mark on the international stage once again.
The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has expressed his confidence that the Uruguay striker Luis Suarez will not leave the club amidst rumours that he is extremely discontent with the abuse he is getting from the media and the fans of the opposition.
He was also said that Luis Suarez is extremely motivated by the abuse he gets from these sources. Luis Suarez is undoubtedly one of the best players at Liverpool, and he has been responsible for helping the team at least be close to the top half of the table. It has been one of the worst starts to new season by the Merseyside club.
The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that there is a real danger of the Liverpool players being converted into divers if they are to get any refereeing decisions correct.
The Uruguay national team manager Oscar Tabarez has said that he expects his team to improve a lot in the upcoming games at the London Olympics 2012. Uruguay only managed a close win over United Arab Emirates in the opening match of the tournament.
Speaking after the close 2-1 win, the Uruguay manager Oscar Tabarez said that he is not a special manager when it comes to dealing with the opening matches of the tournament. As a result, he expects his team to improve drastically in the forthcoming matches. Uruguay are one of the favourites to win the gold medal at the London Olympics 2012.
