Uruguay's 23-Man Squad For The World Cup Has Been Released

Despite their relative lack of recent success in the competition, this summer in Russia may be their chance to make a serious statement on the world stage and make a deep run in tournament. They've both been prolific in front of goal in their respective domestic leagues this season with 46 goals between them.

La Celeste's enviable attacking capability was on full display throughout their route to Russia.

Portal "Transfermarket" seven players of the national team of Uruguay estimates at least 20 million Euro in this list in addition to the veteran team featured young Jose Jimenez and Lucas, Tarara.

Uruguay has been drawn into Group A alongside Russia, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia. The 70-year-old has used a wheelchair since he was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome in 2016.

Vladimir Putin spent billions to ensure his nation's gleaming new stadiums were finished on time, but even Russia's all-powerful leader is unable to address the key failing that threatens to humiliate Russian football fans over the next month-and-a-half. Provided they can keep Salah quiet and beat Egypt, they shouldn't have a problem topping their group. Stanislav Cherchesov's side were knocked out of the Confederations Cup early last summer which did little to enhance confidence in their chances, while their latest unimpressive showing came in a 1-0 friendly defeat to Austria where they failed to muster a shot on target. The only international trophy they've won together was the 2011 Copa América so a World Cup winners medal would certainly be a welcome addition to their relatively sparse international trophy cabinet.

In the group stage of the world championship the national team of Uruguay will play against Russia, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
