Does anyone know why Uruguay play with 4 stars on their kit?

 

Afterall they've "only" been world champions twice.

Pre World-Cup gold medals in the Olympics.

A quick search tells me that they have counted their two Olympic golds from the 1920s.

Although losing Portugal looking a lot better. Guedes still doesn't look like he's played football before though.

Yeah he's pretty bad.  Andre Silva is better imo.

They could do with a Pauleta alongside Ronaldo.

Thanks :) 

 

Very weird that FIFA allows it. Should for instance Poland and Mexico start playing with a star, since they won the Olympic tournament once? :D

If they won it before 1930, they might allow it.

Portugal needs to take more risks. When they are in Uruguay's half they usually end up passing it from flank to flank. They need to be more adventurous.

 

 

oooh, Ronaldo FK coming up!

I think that makes it 42 free-kicks to go before he scores another one.

Whilst I can't stand Ronaldo I do very much respect and appreciate him...however when he pulls his shorts up on a free kick he does remind me of what a full grown man would look like in a baby grow...and that just diminishes any style the guy thinks he might have :D

Are we allowed to refer to Cristiano Ronaldo by his surname?

 

So you still think that the fat Brazilian was better? :D

Uruguay are so mobile and combative, lots of players with energy that offset some of their slower ones. Can see why they've kept so many clean sheets

Some decent pass and move in possession too.

You have extremely high standards. I hope you play like a mix of Pele and Maradona.

My bad, I referred to situations when he has the ball.

He's good defensively.

When Iran put a man on him last game, he looked pretty bad.

He's basically Portugal's version of Eric Dier. Both are pretty slow and cumbersome, quite slow with the ball too.

I really like him on the ball, but not seen much of him outside Euro 2016 and this WC. Definitely improved Portugal's midfield since the days of Miguel Veloso.
