Uruguay Squad For FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 And Players And Match List

Uruguay were fortunate enough to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup despite their poor performance and continuous loss of games, which led to the firing of their head coach. La Celeste appointed Diego Alonso, who guided the squad to World Cup qualification as the American giants finished third in the Conmebol qualifiers, behind Argentina and Brazil. Following the announcement of their squad, Uruguay will now prepare for the FIFA World Cup.

Uruguay hosted and won the first FIFA World Cup in 1930, beating Argentina 4–2 in the final. They won their fourth and last title in 1950, upsetting host Brazil 2–1 in the final match. The team have qualified for thirteen World Cups, reaching the second round in ten, the semifinals five times, and the finals twice. On 28 May 1928, the FIFA Congress in Amsterdam decided to stage a world championship itself. With Uruguay now two-time official football world champions and to celebrate their centenary of independence in 1930, FIFA named Uruguay as the host country of the inaugural World Cup tournament.

Diego Alonso has gathered a strong squad, and the country could be a surprise in this World Cup. Uruguay have been the World Championship twice, in 1930 and 1950. In 2018, they advanced to the quarter-finals before being ousted by eventual champions France. Veteran players Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, as well as the injured Ronald Araujo, have been named in the 26-man squad.
