Uruguay: Suarez's shame

Team Assessment

Bite-Gate revisited

A week's worth of watching the international 'week of football'

The ESPN FC team discuss Tuesday's international friendlies, including Scotland's loss at home to England and what the United States need to do to get back on track.

With the novelty of the "Week of Football" wearing off, ESPN FC asked Iain Macintosh to watch as many games as he possibly could and tell us whether he still thought it was a good idea at the end. Here's what he made of it all. -- FC editors

Turkey vs. Brazil

For some reason impossible to comprehend, British broadcasters have no interest in a relatively meaningless exhibition game between two foreign nations, but we are made of sturdy stuff at ESPN FC, and lights are cast upon...

Stakes are high in South American friendlies as players look to impress

Brazil's Rafael Cabral, Uruguay's Giorgian De Arrascaeta and Peru's Carlos Ascues all have the chance to stake their claim for a national team spot in the coming weeks.

As the Copa America (next June and July in Chile) draws nearer, the stakes rise for South America's national teams. For the moment, the teams are just playing friendlies, but the competitive matches are coming closer: the next set of World Cup qualifiers get going soon after the Copa.

In 2015 there is only one set of FIFA dates before the real stuff starts. Over the next few days, then, some interesting experiments will be carried out with coaches wanting to take a long, hard look at some of their...

Next game between historic rivals Nacional and Penarol has title weight

The chance for Nacional to win the title on Sunday adds extra spice to their fiery rivalry with Penarol.

Battle resumes on Sunday in the oldest derby outside the British Isles. Since June 1900 the big two clubs in Montevideo, Uruguay, Nacional and Penarol, have been fighting out a bitter rivalry.

At the start, though, Penarol went by another name: Central Uruguay Railway Cricket Club, which rather gives away the English origins of the institution. Soon, though, the identity of the club was transformed; as Penarol they attracted a following among poor Italian immigrants flooding into Uruguay, people...

Reviewing the results of CONMEBOL teams since the World Cup

With his comeback from suspension close, Luis Suarez has come to terms with his actions, which saw him sent home from the World Cup in disgrace.

After the FIFA dates of September and October, how have the South American national teams progressed as they warm up for next year's Copa America followed by the 2018 World Cup qualifiers?

ARGENTINA: Won 4-2 away to Germany, lost 2-0 to Brazil and beat Hong Kong 7-0

New coach Gerardo Martino has built on the work of predecessor Alejandro Sabella but has also made a tweak. The base formation remains 4-3-3 (which Sabella's Argentina abandoned in the World Cup due to injuries), but with a difference.

Luis Suarez's return brings another dynamic for Uruguay's offense

Luis Suarez improved the versatility of Uruguay's offense in his two friendly appearances for the team.

Playing for Uruguay for the first time since the infamous biting incident against Italy in the World Cup may have proved a little too much for Luis Suarez.

Just over half an hour into Friday's match against Saudi Arabia, he had to leave the field for a quick toilet break. Once he had relieved himself, he soon showed why Uruguay coach Oscar Washington Tabarez was so keen to have him back. Suarez showed few signs of ring rust against the Saudis or in Monday's meeting with Oman.

He could not claim...

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...
