Uruguay has unveiled their 26-man squad for the World Cup tournament in Qatar, and they will be aiming for a great campaign given Suarez and Cavani’s experience.

Coach Diego Alonso announced his squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup on the 10th of November 2022.

Alonso has given his team great hope ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, while experienced attackers Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani have been selected for their fourth straight World Cup, which was the highlight of Uruguay’s squad announcement on Thursday.

Cavani, 35, was considered in doubt due to a recurring ankle injury, which has seen him complete a full 90 minutes just once this LaLiga season for Valencia.

Following that 90-minute performance, he was withdrawn just 18 minutes into Valencia’s following game against Barcelona on October 29 and is yet to return.

Suarez, who is also 35, played in both September friendlies, contributing an assist in a 2-0 win against fellow World Cup qualifiers Canada to indicate he is still at the required level, despite playing his club football for Nacional in the Uruguayan First Division.

The Uruguayan team boasts a great mix of younger, developing talent, led by 24-year-old Real Madrid player Federico Valverde, who will add experience to the attacking partnership.

Centre-backs Ronald Araujo from Barcelona and Jose Gimenez from Atletico Madrid are among the impressive group that has joined the squad from La Liga. Cavani and Valverde are at the front of this group.

Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez, Tottenham’s Rodrigo Bentancur and Manchester United’s Facundo Pellistri are the squad’s only Premier League representatives, while Napoli’s Mathias Olivera, Roma’s Matias Vina and Lazio’s Matias Vecino represent Serie A.
