After leaking goals in their first couple of matches, Uruguay finally emerged with their first cleansheet of the qualifiers the last time they stepped onto the pitch. It was a shut down the side roped in courtesy of Martin Campana who stood tall infront of the barrage of shots directed his way.
Equipped with the best defensive record, the Brazilians have made for a defensive unit no one has fancied coming across. Letting in just two goals past them in three fixtures, the county has kept two cleansheets in the same timeframe, showings which made it prudent of us to opt for a trio of picks from the side.
We begin with CB Marquinhos who has scored on the one occasion for the club with counterparts Thiago Silva and Danilo Luiz da Silva joining up with him.
Discarded by Arsenal, moving to greener pastures has done a world of good to Lucas Torreira’s career. He’s once again started showing glimpses of the guile filled midfielder he is with him playing an instrumental role in Uruguay’s win against Colombia.
Juventus’ Rodrigo Bentacur once again utilised his ability to traverse his way past tight spaces to layup the ball in lethal positions for his counterparts. Brazil will also find representation in a duo, one made up of the indomitable Allan and Everton Ribeiro, players who have offered unbridled support to the side’s backline.
Scoring his first goal of the qualifiers, Uruguay’s striker Edinson Cavani will be the lone pick from the side in this docket. Brazil meanwhile will see us venture in with top scorer with the three goals, Roberto Firmino and Richarlison who has provided the one goal.
