Do you know the Uruguay squad? There is another star player in the team, his name is Suarez! He is topscorder in the Dutch Eredivisie at Ajax Amsterdam.. Some reports says: Manchester United want to buy him! Anyhow there are more talents in the squad like Lodeiro, also a player of Ajax Amsterdam ;)

And sorry, but Group A is easy for Uruguay.. France is not at their strongest ever so they can draw or win! South Africa and Mexico should be won!

I have seen some matches during the south american qualify. dont think they would make it to the WC without Forlan. But, sure, they have more than one player- but I think a big resposibilty has been laid on Forlans shoulders. And Forlan has played excelent with the pressure!

They did not play well on their way to WC. Dont think they have any chances. With or without Forlan.
