Tabarez undaunted by injury crisis

Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez says that he wants to concentrate on what the Copa America champions do have on the pitch, as they face an injury crisis ahead of Friday's 2014 World Cup qualifier against Chile.

The 2010 World Cup semi-finalists are without strikers Diego Forlan and Abel Hernandez, midfielders Alvaro Fernandez and Walter Gargano and defender Jorge Fucile. Maximiliano Pereira is also suspended, leaving Tabarez with few options.

"It's time to think about what we have and a little less about what we don't have, even though the latter is significant," Tabarez told reporters. "Otherwise, we would be dwelling on the problems and not the solutions.

"We will try to field a team which can put into practice the ideas we have from a tactical point of view."

Uruguay are a point ahead of Chile in CONMEBOL qualifying with four points from their first two games.
