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.

TBH guys if Suarez does another tactical deliberate handball, or tries to eat one of Portugal's players, I hope FIFA ban him from the rest of the tournament.

Need someone better than Guedes.

They did last game with Andre Silva but he's put him back in for some reason.

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!

If Carvalho played for a better team than Portugal, he could be Lothar Matthäus Mk. II.

:lol:

He's too slow in every situation.

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

If you're going to do the whole shorts thing showing everyone your legs then you have to do something a bit better than blast it straight at the wall.

It's intimidation technique :D

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

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

That bloke up front with Ronaldo looks like Ched Evans

He's a midfield boss.

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

 

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

Don't really see how that isn't a penalty to Portugal. Yeah Godin has gone for the ball, but he's missed it and essentially head butted him

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.

@PMLF will correct you ;)

I just think it's funny how he's referred to only by his first and middle names. It's not even like a nickname e.g. with Nani or Ronaldinho.

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.
