Uruguay’s record goalscorer Luis Suarez on Monday accepted his most memorable hit up under new mentor Marcelo Bielsa who named the 36-year-old in his crew to confront Argentina this week in a 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier. Suarez, with 68 global objectives to his name, has been in sublime structure for Brazilian club Gremio with 16 objectives in 29 games yet has not highlighted for Uruguay since Bielsa took over in May. Thursday’s match against Argentina will be his first for the public group since they were dispensed with from the World Cup in Qatar in the gathering stages a year ago.
Edinson Cavani, who has 58 worldwide objectives to his name, was forgotten about subsequent to getting a physical issue playing for Boca Youngsters.
Assuming he plays, Suarez is probably going to face his previous Barcelona partner Lionel Messi who scored the two objectives in the qualifier against Peru last month that finished 2-0.
Argentina has won each of the four of its qualifiers up until this point, finishing off the table with 12 places, five clear of Venezuela, Brazil and Uruguay.
Six groups from the landmass will fit the bill for the FIFA World Cup 2026 facilitated by Canada, Mexico and the US.
