Head coach Óscar Tabárez on Monday named a 25-man provisional list, plus three reserves, ahead of next month’s tournament in Brazil, making few changes from the squad that finished as semifinalists in the 2010 World Cup .
Diego Forlán (above), winner of the Golden Ball as the best player in 2010, will retake his place at the head of Uruguay’s fearsome attack after a winter move to Japan’s Cerezo Osaka. Also present are Liverpool striker Luis Suárez and Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani, making a tricky defensive proposition for La Celeste‘s three group opponents – England, Italy and Costa Rica.
