World Cup 2010: Uruguay Keeps on Trucking

There’s just no stopping the Selección Uruguaya!uruguay mexico world cup

Uruguay, from one of the most difficult qualifying regions in the world, came up big in the first three games it played in this year’s World Cup and secured itself a spot in the next round  by grabbing 7 points. It pulled off a stunning tie with France in its first game and then went on to defeat host South Africa and Mexico in its following matches, which was no easy task.

Uruguay is a two-time winner of the World Cup, but those came in 1930 and 1950. It has not been a championship contender in recent tournaments and last advanced in 1990 in Italy.

But this squad could be different. It has scoring power in Suarez and Diego Forlán, and its defense was unbeatable in the opening round.

Tomorrow Uruguay faces off against South Korea – should be a great game!

Vamos Uruguay!
