A World Cup With No Luis Suarez Or Edinson Cavani? Uruguay’s Qatar Hopes Are Hanging

Posted by

After being brutally defeated by Bolivia on Tuesday, Uruguay has set themselves a monumental challenge in their quest to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

At Estadio Hernando Siles, Luis Suarez and Co were defeated 3-0, with two goals from Juan Carlos Arce and another from Marcelo Martins Moreno securing a comfortable victory for the hosts, who were even reduced to ten men.

Playing at La Paz, Bolivia’s capital, was always going to be a challenge because the city is 3,637 meters above sea level, making it one of the world’s highest altitude stadiums.

With only four matches remaining, La Celeste is trapped in seventh place in the South American qualification group, one point behind fourth and fifth place.

Despite their poor results, Oscar Tabarez’s team might take some solace in the shape of their forthcoming opponents.

They’ve already played Brazil and Argentina twice, the two teams that have already qualified for Qatar, and they won’t have to face Ecuador, who appear to be in the running for third place.
