FIFA World Cup 2014: Uruguay 23 Man Squad

Uruguay coach, Oscar Tabarez, has selected his 23 man squad for FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil.

The Uruguayan team, which won the first ever World Cup in 1930, and was also victorious in 1950, will be looking to follow up a hugely impressive 2010 campaign which saw a Diego Forlan inspired Uruguay finish fourth.

Forlan returns from the 2010 squad, though he now plies his trade in Japan. Perhaps more attention will be on Louis Suarez, who has been in scintillating form for club side, Liverpool, this season. His goalscoring talents are just the sort of threat a team needs if it is to do well in tournament football.

If Uruguay are to repeat their strong showing last time around, they will need a good performance in Group D, where they will face England, Italy and Costa Rica: a big name is going out at the first hurdle in this group.
