MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay -- Goals by Edinson Cavani and Christian Stuani lifted Uruguay past Slovenia 2-0 in a World Cup warm-up on Wednesday night.
With the exception of star Luis Suarez, who is recovering from knee surgery, Uruguay were at full strength for the match. Uruguay hope to at least repeat their performance at the World Cup four years ago, when they made the semifinals before losing to the Netherlands.
Cavani opened the scoring in the 36th minute with a strong header off a perfect pass from playmaker Diego Forlan.
Forty minutes later, Stuani clinched the win after Cavani set him up for an easy shot into an unguarded net.
Uruguay opens their World Cup play against Costa Rica on June 14.
