Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera a doubt for World Cup
The 31-year-old goalkeeper, who has over 95 international caps, was a starter for Uruguay at the last two World Cups, setting a record for the longest unbeaten goalkeeper during the 2010 tournament.
He was again expected to start between the sticks in Russia, but a hand injury on Wednesday has put his World Cup participation in doubt after suffering severe pain.
Muslera will have the x-ray tonight to determine the extent of the injury, and whether he will be able to catch the World Cup or not.
The injury will make Martín Silva of Vasco da Gama and Independiente’s Martín Campaña as Óscar Tabárez’s goalkeeping options in Russia.
Óscar Tabárez’s men will play only one friendly before the World Cup and it will be against Asian side Uzbekistan on June 7.
