This Friday marks Uruguay’s debut in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in the USA, Mexico and Canada.
Heaven will be the locals at the Centenario stadium hosting Chile at 20 o’clock, which would also be Marcelo Bielsa’s official match debut as national team coach.
Darwin Nunez trained as a starter on Tuesday and all indications are that he will launch the Uruguayan offensive.

A little later, Luis Suarez answered him with a message.
“Let’s rise with every scorer! A wonderful stage begins to break it with a nine! 👊🏼,” Suarez wrote to Darwin, I wish him good performance in the first two games against the Chileans on Friday and then against Ecuador in Quito next Tuesday at the 18th hour of Uruguay.
