Uruguay got off to a perfect start in the Copa America 2019 with a 4-0 win over Ecuador where everything clicked for the 2011 champions. Next up for them is a young Japan team that were humbled by Chile in their opener. Another perfect outing for Uruguay will seal passage to the next round. They have been in good form in 2019 winning each of their four games which means the morale is high in their camp. Japan’s decision to play a youthful side ahead of the Olympics is certainly a bold one as it is not often teams are invited to the Copa America.

Matias Vecino, who picked up a thigh injury for Uruguay rules him out of the tournament which means a likely call for Arsenal man Lucas Torreira. Uruguay’s strength lies in their full-backs – Martin Caceres and Diego Laxalt who provide width going forward. Luis Suarez was on the scoresheet for the side in the previous game which is good for the team considering his issues with the knee. Rodrigo Bentancur will likely join up the attack with his team certain to boss possession.
Real Madrid’s Takefusa Kubo looked lively against Chile and was unlucky not to be on the scoresheet. He will once again be the player to watch out for a young inexperienced Japan side. Midfielder Shibasaki who has 35 caps for the Blue Samurai has an important role to play coming up against a world class opposition. Daizen Maeda who made his debut in the previous game has the pace to trouble Uruguay but needs to work on his build-up play.
