Uruguay will qualify. The problem was that they didn't want to change the 1994 or the 1998 team.
In 1994 they had practacly the same team from 1990 only thing diferent was the age.
In 1998 they had players that just aren't National team players. Sanguinetti, Abreu, Martinez, Bengoechea, Fracescoli (Was good in club team but when he played for the National team he sucked), Paz, Fonseca, Alvez, they where all to old or just not good enough. This year Uruguay changed around they left out players like Abeijon, Fonseca, Otero (At lest I think I didn't see his name in the roster) and brought in young players that so far are doing great.

It's nice to see a post about Uruguay. I agree that Uruguay has long needed a change of tactic and Passarella seems to be doing the job. Don't diss Francescoli. Even at 36 he was the best player on the field when they last tried to qualify. Their biggest problem has always been getting their full squad together. They always have half their team in Europe and rarely could get them together. Fonseca was a great stiker before the injuries. If he can get healthy he can still be of use.

I honestly believe that Recoba will eventually be better than Francescoli.

ALthout Recoba's age Francescoli was better and WAY!!!!!!! better known i think CHino Recoba will be an all time Uruguay great.

i really hope to see CHino and the boys at W.C.2002.

Tell me sommin is Fabien O'Neil playing? If he is why the ^%*^ is Mr. Let me get sent off one more time wearing the Captains arm band?

And honestly why is Rivas still in the squad? he doesn't ever play i don't think it is sending the right mesage.

URUGUAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mr. Let me get sent off one more time is the captain as he is one of the worlds best defenders and has a great personality.however i think recoba should use it as when he used it against paraguay he played incredibly.recoba is better than francescoli already !!!
rivas is not on the team anymore.

This result hurts! This is the kind of crap happened before WC 98. You can't throw away points to crappy teams like Peru, especially when you're playing at home. 0-0 in Montevideo against Peru!!!! Gimme a ****ing break!!! Maybe against Argentina that is a good result.
