Uruguay's new look team will get their first chance to prove that Carrasco fundamental change of "la Celeste" is for real. A protagonist Uruguay that relies is their undoubted attacking talent rather than in their traditional tough defense and "garra charrua"

Bolivia IMHO is the least prepared NT of the qualifiers and I am afraid they will show it in their first game. Talent as well is limited.

The press is criticizing heavily the Bolivian NT for not having practized this past Monday when all other teams have done so.

Nelson Acosta has a very short leash if Bolivia doesn't get at least 1 point out of the first two games, I think all hell will brake loose.

The press in Montevideo also is having doubts about Carini being left out and also Pandiani not being called up

Hmm.. Should be an interesting match.. I guess,...

Carrasco has said that he has already got his starting line up, but won't reveal just yet of course

If Pandiani shows his current form he should be placed as a permanent replacement to that muppet Abreu..

Carrasco will most likely be playing with a 3-3-1-3 formation..

I would like this team for the Bolivia match...



----------------Munua

-----Gonzalez-Sorondo-Lopez

----Giacomazzi-Liguera-Sosa

---------------Olivera

----Forlan--Chevanton--Recoba

But I'm guessing Recoba will play behind the strikers so maybe Regueiro, Sanchez or even Bueno could start as striker.

As far as Carini I read it somewhere in the net a few days back, I can't remember which portal was it.

You are correct 3-3-1-3 seem to be the formation. The Uruguayan press oozes confidence. I hope for Uruguay's NT sake that they are able to win otherwise the press will crucify them.

In Bolivia Acosta is practicing behind close doors. He appears to lean towards a 4-3-1-2 with only Baldivieso, Castillo and Botero with offensive duties.

Well they better win

Carrasco has made all training sessions behind closed doors adn today spent many hours with the team studying Bolivia's 3-0 win over Panama...

So 7 defensive players ay?

Carrasco will almost match that with attacking players

Opinions on the game from the coaches in Uruguay:


Abraham Yeladian (Bella Vista): "Estoy convencido que vamos a ganar. Hay mucho potencial. Uruguay gana".

Miguel Angel Puppo (Central Español): "No opino".

Gerardo Pelusso (Cerro): "Ganamos bien, tenemos mejor plantel que Bolivia. Los amistosos han dado la medida a Carrasco".

Roberto Roo (Danubio): "Se está ganando un respeto basado en el sistema ofensivo que muestra. Ganamos 3:0".

Juan Ahuntchain (Defensor Sporting): "Hay una gran expectativa, en todos los sentidos. Uruguay gana".

Carlos Manta (Deportivo Colonia): "Nos va ir bien, pero vamos a tener más complicaciones de lo que la gente cree. Si el rival se ordena bien en defensa, será muy difícil entrarle. De todas maneras, vamos a ganar".

Sergio Silveyra (Deportivo Maldonado): "Hay que darle crédito a Carrasco. Uruguay gana".

Antonio Alzamendi (Fénix): "Ahora los partidos se jugarán por los puntos, será otra cosa. Creo que Uruguay llega mejor que Bolivia, pero hay que demostrarlo en la cancha. Las eliminatorias, como siempre, son durísimas".

Aníbal Montero (Juventud): "Vamos a ganar, no se por cuánto, porque Uruguay es más que Bolivia y está jugando bien. Hay confianza con nuestra selección".

Roland Marcenaro (Miramar Misiones): "Uruguay derrota a Bolivia por 2:0. Sin tirar manteca al techo, pienso que somos más que los bolivianos".

Daniel Carreño (Nacional): "Uruguay va a ganar. Las cosas se han hecho muy bien, vamos por el buen camino".

Diego Aguirre (Peñarol): "Veo a un Uruguay ganador, me parece que las cosas van muy bien. Uruguay gana".

Gustavo Matosas (Plaza Colonia): "El rendimiento de está selección me entusiasma. Uruguay gana".

Martín Lasarte (River Plate): "Hay un gran optimismo, que marca la realidad de un buen momento. Uruguay ganará por 2:0".

Jorge González (Tacuarembó): "Creo en el trabajo que se está haciendo y me da tranquilidad. Ganamos 2:0".

Miguel Ángel Mesa (Villa Española): "Está cambiando el fútbol y el panorama está mejor que nunca".

Jorge Barrios (Wanderers): "Vi a los muchachos enchufados, en un buen clima. Me gusta la idea futbolística. 3:0 gana Uruguay".

Carrasco has been starting the following team in practice

Munua in goal

3 men defense
Christian Gonzalez, Gonzalo Sorondo and Alejandro Lago

3 men midfield
Martin Liguera, Marcelo Sosa and Richard Nuñez

1 Attacking midfielder
Alvaro Recoba

3 men attack
Javier Chevaton, Diego Forlan and Carlos Bueno


For Uruguayos sake this team better score a lot because they are going to get score on. Maybe not against Bolivia, but if Carrasco fields this team against just about anybody else, it will be a goal fest IMO.

Yeah that looks about right...

But JR would have to put in another def mid instead of Nunez...Maybe Giacomazzi, and Nunez could take Bueno's place.

I don't think he would play like this against Brasil or the Argies...

This definitively was expected., Bolivia is a very limited team. Not only that but they are the worst prepared team by far.
