World Cup 2010, Uruguay Vs. Ghana: Sebastian Abreu On For Edinson Cavani

Because Óscar Tabárez has led in each of his World Cup 2010 matches, he hasn't had the opportunity to make one of his standard, late match substitutions.  Today, drawn 1-1 with Ghana in the 76th minute, Tabárez has been able to bring on El Loco, Sebastián Abreu, for Edinson Cavani.

Abreu is Uruguay's target striker, typically used as a late match substitution when the side elects to start throwing more crosses in the box, hoping for a goal through the air.

The match is now in the 83rd minute, still tied 1-1.
