Team: Uruguay

Nickname: Charrúas or The Olympic Sky Blue

World Cup appearances: 12 (Winners in 1930 and 1950)

World ranking: 14

Coach: Oscar Washington Tabarez

Captain: Diego Godín

Player to watch: Luis Suárez
He is Uruguay’s all-time leading goal scorer, and won European and world club honours with Barcelona. Has a knack for scoring in the FIFA World Cup with 5 goals.

NowUC predictor:
Should easily progress through the group stage but will most likely meet Spain or Portugal who will really test them. This World Cup possibly be the last one for a few noteworthy players including the skipper Godin, so there is plenty of incentive to prolong the tournament for the South Americans.
