Friendlies allow Uruguay's next generation a chance to shine

Uruguay fly home on Tuesday from their Far East jaunt to Japan and South Korea. Next month, they head to the Middle East to take on Saudi Arabia and Oman.

These fixtures reveal that, for South American national teams, we are in the silly season. For the first year after a World Cup, there are no competitive fixtures. The serious stuff doesn't get going until next June with the Copa America in Chile -- a title worth fighting for and also a preparation ground for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, which...

Oscar Tabarez's vision for Uruguay must now begin to bear fruit

Uruguay head coach Oscar Tabarez's team wrap up their World Cup preparation versus Slovenia.
Oscar Tabarez has always insisted his plan for Uruguay is a long-term one.

Uruguay coach Oscar Washington Tabarez is not with the team as they travel to the Far East to take on Japan and then South Korea. He is recovering from a spinal problem, and also his permanence in charge of the national team, though very close to being defined, is still not 100 percent confirmed.

But he has selected the squad, and, in one sense, the real value of his work with Uruguay might be judged from now on.

That might seem an extraordinary statement given the success Uruguay have enjoyed since...

Obdulio Varela: The wise champion

The ESPN FC team give their take on 1950 World Cup winner and former Uruguay captain, Obdulio Varela.

Who is the greatest captain of all time? From Aug. 18-29, ESPN FC will reveal its 10-man shortlist of the finest skippers to have graced the game before conducting a vote for the winner. The result will be revealed on Sept. 1.


"When we walk out onto the pitch, don't look up at the stands. On the pitch, it's 11 against 11." Reports claim that about 200,000 people were in the stands of the Maracana for the decisive match of the 1950 World Cup between Brazil and Uruguay, but Obdulio Varela wasn't going...

Suarez doing himself no favours at Anfield

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth reacts to Luis Suarez's apology.

So Luis Suarez has belatedly apologised to Giorgio Chiellini. He's also apologised to "the entire football family" and vowed to the "public" that it will never happen again.

- Hunter: Hidden agenda in Suarez apology?
- Report: Suarez apologises to Chiellini
- Report: Liverpool say more signings due

Presumably Liverpool FC, Brendan Rodgers and the fans who have all steadfastly stood behind him throughout all of his various problems are included under the umbrella of "the entire football family",...

Tactics Board: Dutch play long; Greek bombardment

Bruno Martins
This shows where Bruno Martins Indi was passing, with long, diagonal balls.

Netherlands 2-1 Mexico

The Netherlands have played different forms of direct football in this World Cup. For the group-stage games against Spain and Chile, they relied on swift counterattacking. When they were 1-0 down to Mexico, that wasn't an option, so they took more of an aerial route. You could call it a long-ball game.

Bruno Martins Indi's passing map in the final 40 minutes demonstrates their approach. The substitute came on as one of the centre-backs in a 5-3-2 system but ended up at left-back,...
