Back to Team Injury Analysis

 

Uruguay

TEAM ANALYSIS: The always controversial Luis Suarez leads Uruguay’s attack alongside Edinson Cavani, and both players carry a Low Injury Risk. This teams entered the World Cup with very few injury concerns and should have all of their best players fully fit for the Knockout Round. Centre-back Jose Maria Gimenez has already returned to training after missing their last game with a muscle injury. If Suarez can continue to make it through the tournament without a suspension, this team has the talent to win a few more games. This is a complete team from top to bottom, so even if they do lose a player along they way they should be able to overcome the injury.
