Cavani and Giménez return, Araújo repeats call

The Uruguay coach, Óscar Tabárez, has released the provisional list of 25 players for the next two Knockout matches against Colombia Y Brazil.

José María Giménez and Edinson Cavani are the two big names of this call. The recent signing of Manchester United was not called up in the first due to technical decision, by alleging 'El Maestro' his long period of inactivity and period without finding equipment as the main reason for the decision. For its part, Atlético's central defender was forced out being in home isolation for his positive in coronavirus.

Who repeats call is Ronald Araujo. The young central defender of Barcelona already had minutes in the match against Ecuador that the Uruguayan team lost 4-2 and could have minutes in these two games. Along with him will be classics like Luis Suárez, Diego Godín and Fede Valverde.

Tabárez must make two discards before giving the final list, in which footballers such as Maxi Gómez, Stuani or Darwin Núñez could enter, author of a hat-trick with Benfica in the Europa League and that has curdled a sensational start to the season with the Portuguese team.
