Egypt WC opponents: Uruguay begin preparations with win over Czech
The South American side are taking part in the China Cup friendly tournament alongside Wales, the Czech Republic, and hosts China in order to assess their squad ahead of the World Cup next June.
Manager Óscar Tabárez named a strong starting XI, which saw key men Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani, Diego Godin, and goalkeeper Fernando Muslera starting from the beginning.
Barcelona forward Luis Suarez opened the scoreline after only 10 minutes with a penalty after he was fouled by the goalkeeper, before Cavani doubled his side’s lead through a brilliant bicycle kick in 37th minute, sealing a 2-0 victory.
Uruguay will now face Wales in the China Cup final, after the European side thrashed China 6-0 in the other semi-final, thanks to a Gareth Bale hat-trick.
They will also face Uzbekistan next June as their last friendly before the World Cup, in which they will face Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Russia.
