The Uruguayan team lost (0-2) to Portugal and complicated their chances of passing the round of 16 of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. However, all is not lost for the cast led by Diego Alonso, as they must beat Ghana this Friday and hope that South Korea loses or draws against the team led by Cristiano Ronaldo.
A sector of the Uruguayan fans considers that qualifying is difficult and it rained criticism against the team’s approach due to the defeat against the Portuguese team. However, the technical director of the ‘Celestes’ is optimistic for the future.
In this sense, Diego Alonso is confident that Uruguay will pass the round and thus, he demonstrated it through his social networks. “I choose to believe”, wrote the strategist in a post on his Twitter account and also attached a photograph of his managers. In addition, he made it clear that the group is more united than ever.
It should be remembered that, after the defeat against Ghana, DT expressed self-criticism. “I think we couldn’t hit when we had the chance. The team put in a great effort. It was difficult for us, just like in the first half, to let go and play, as it had happened to us in the first game”. he said at a press conference.
“In the second half we played better, we found more play between the lines, we created scoring chances, we had very clear chances to convert, we lacked forcefulness either to open the scoring and then to tie it”, added the coach.
