The final match of Copa America 2011 is now just minutes away and Uruguay and Paraguay have decided on the teams that they will send out to try to capture the trophy. Uruguay is going with the same team that got them to the final, playing a 4-4-2 with Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez up top and Sebastian Coates joining the always dependable Diego Lugano in the center of defense. The only change is Diego Perez rejoining the team in the midfield after sitting out the semifinal match with a suspension.
Paraguay has decided to finally bench Lucas Barrios, taking their most famous player off of the field in the biggest match of the tournament. That's not much of a surprise considering how awful Barrios has been this tournament, but to see him on the bench will be strange. Pablo Zeballos has come into the team for him and will make just his second competitive start, but the real question for Paraguay is where they will get width in the midfield. The four they have put forward will really struggle to even get within spitting distance of the sideline.
Uruguay (4-4-2): Fernando Muslera; Maxi Pereira, Diego Lugano, Sebastian Coates, Martin Caceres; Alvaro Gonzalez, Diego Perez, Egidio Arevalo Rios, Alvaro Pereira; Diego Forlan, Luis Suarez
