Uruguay honor Caceres, Cavani, Godin, Muslera and Suarez ahead of their fourth World Cup

Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani, Diego Godin, Fernando Muslera and Martin Caceres were honored this Wednesday by the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF), as they prepare to participate in their fourth world Cup. To greet its great elders, the AUF asked World Cup debutants – Sergio Rochet, Ronald Araujo, Mathias Olivera, Federico Valverde and Darwin Nunez – to offer them a present, accompanied by President Ignacio Alonso.

“In this World Cup, there are five members of this delegation who reach their fourth World Cup, which only one player has been able to achieve in the history of Uruguayan football: Pedro Virgilio Rocha (in 1974), Alonso said. These players are in good shape, they have a great story to write and who knows if they won’t break the record. »

“They are going to receive the recognition of five players who make their debut and who, God willing, will also have the possibility of achieving their record of four or five”, he added. Uruguay begin their campaign against South Korea on Thursday, before facing Portugal and Ghana in Group H.
