Uruguay meanwhile go back to a 3-5-2, with Diego Forlan coming in to replace Luis Suarez in attack. Edinson Cavani is the main man up front, and Cristian Rodriguez will have to supply much of the creativity in midfield with Nicolas Lodeiro being dropped once again to the bench after the Italy game.
