Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, Tabárez knows what he’s doing… after all, we qualified to the World Cup because of Tabárez and only Tabárez, since 2010, this is all we’ve heard.

The Under-20 Tournament came and went, for a brief moment we were allowed to fantasize with actually winning a World Cup, unfortunately it wasn’t to be. Uruguay’s fortune in this tournament came down to penalties. Uruguay’s last 3 games went to penalties – outside of the the Portugal match which gave us some exciting saves from Fénix goalkeeper, Santiago Mele – Uruguay eventually ran out of steam, Venezuela advanced to […]
