World Cup 2022 Uruguay Group & Preview

Twice World Cup winners Uruguay is currently ranked second in their group as of this writing. They reached the quarterfinals in 2018 before losing to eventual winner France.

La Celeste had a dominant squad until falling in the Copa America quarterfinals in 2021.

France beat Uruguay in the World Cup quarterfinals. South American talent will continue to grow in Qatar. Forwards like Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani are still dangerous at 35 years old.

Uruguay defeated Chile 2-0 in late March and has since won four straight games. Concerns remain about the team’s age and ability to compete against more experienced opponents.

Portugal and Uruguay are in similar situations. It’s possible that their elderly band may make one more worldwide appearance. Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, are they passed their prime?

Uruguayans are known for their winning attitude and competitive spirit. This was seen during the 2010 Ghana meeting. Due to Luis Suarez’s late handball, the African team was denied a place in the semi-finals. The game was one of the most contentious in World Cup history. Soweto’s African ambitions were crushed when Ghana missed their ensuing penalty shootout.

Tim Vickery describes the momentous evening in South Africa. “The game’s most noteworthy feature was the pan-African support. Uruguay was far bigger than that. They captured an entire continent and took control of it. Uruguay enjoys being pushed to its breaking point. Uruguay has frequently put water into the champagne of the hosts or the side they support in recent years. A huge sidekick, perhaps resembling Joe Frazier, is virtually always included in action flicks. The more difficult it is to do anything, the better it is.”

The 2010 Uruguayan semifinalists, Luis Suarez, Diego Godin, and Fernando Muslera, are still in the competition. Edson Cavani is also well-known among soccer enthusiasts. Federico Valverde, Diego Rossi, and Lucas Torreira, the team’s most promising young players, will be critical to their progression to the next round.

Uruguay FIFA World Cup History

Uruguay has won the World Cup four times. They won the Olympic Committee’s first FIFA World Cup; previously, only European teams were able to compete. Uruguay won the FIFA World Cup twice, once in 1930 and once in 1950.

These competitions were held independently of the Olympics and included both professional and amateur athletes. Since FIFA began hosting major international football tournaments in 1924, Uruguay has won the title four times, earning them the right to display four stars on their shirts.

Prior to 1974, the FIFA World Cup was known as the Football World Championship, and the nine winners were awarded the Jules Rimet Trophy. Uruguay won the first World Cup in 1930, defeating Argentina 4-2. They won their final championship in 1950, defeating the host country Brazil 2-1.

The squad has reached the round of 16 five times, the semifinals five times, and the title game twice in ten World Cup appearances. They won Olympic gold in 1924 and 1928, prior to the World Cup. Uruguay won the Mundialito in 1980, which commemorated the 50th anniversary of the first World Cup. Uruguay has 15 Copa América titles and three Olympic medals.

Uruguay chose not to defend their championship in 1934 due to the low participation of European nations in the 1930 edition. South America objected to FIFA’s plan to hold the 1938 World Cup in France, believing that future tournaments would alternate between their continents.
