Uruguay are set to play Nicaragua at the Estadio Centenario on Thursday in a friendly fixture.
Uruguay come into this match after a 2-1 win over South Korea in their last game. Goals from Sporting CP centre-back Sebastian Coates and Lazio midfielder Matias Vecino gave Uruguay the win. Olympiacos midfielder Hwang In-beom scored the goal for South Korea.
Nicaragua, on the other hand, lost 3:2 to Panama in their last match. A second-half goal from Anderlecht right back Michael Amir Murillo and a goal from Turan Tovuz center back Roderick Miller sealed Panama’s win. Nicaragua’s goals were scored by young midfielder Widman Talavera and defender Oscar Acevedo.
This is the case for these two countries. Nicaragua have the Gold Cup ahead of them, which will begin in a few days, and with more teams playing in the World Cup, they have a greater chance of achieving that feat. Uruguay need to renew their team after the disappointment in Qatar 2022, and they want to start a successful process with their new coach, Marcelo Bielsa.
