With teamwork as a superpower, Uruguay will go out in the semifinals of the U-20 World Cup to defend alone the honor of a South American football humiliated at home with the falls of its giants: Argentina and Brazil.

The task was not easy, to stand up for the region in Argentina-2023 La Celeste had to leave out an emboldened United States.

True to its history, Uruguay gritted its teeth and pulled through the game with a solid 2-0 that put it in the semifinals against the surprising Israel, executioner of Brazil.

“The key to this team is the union we have, if one does not arrive, there is the other. We support each other on and off the field and we will continue like this until the end,” Facundo González told AFP, minutes after beating the Americans 2-0.

However, the ‘gurises’ turned off the Americans by force of team play.

“We had a good preparation before arriving here, now to continue on this path and we are going with everything for what is to come”, the semifinals against Israel, summarized González, defender of Valencia of Spain and quoted by Marcelo Bielsa, brand new DT of the selection Uruguay’s major, for friendlies in mid-June.

This Uruguayan team played a South American smoothly until Brazil beat them in the final. In Argentina-2023 they started with a win against Iraq, lost to England and returned to victory with Tunisia, before beating Gambia in the round of 16.

For his coach, Marcelo Broli, one of the most notable characteristics of his team is that “it is very solid defensively.”

Everyone is working “to recover the ball and in the end zone we have a very good passing game. That is fundamental against strong teams that put a lot of balls in the area” highlighted the DT.

Commitment to defensive play, quick block starts and tactical ability to disarm their rivals are part of the arsenal of a Uruguayan team that is still in the race to win its first U-20 World Cup.

Its neighbors, Argentina and Brazil, are the vast dominators of the competition with six and five world titles in the category, respectively.

La Celeste touched glory playing the 1997 finals against Argentina and in 2013 against France.

“Uruguay, Uruguay”, thousands of Argentines chanted during this U-20 World Cup, in support of their neighbors from Rio de la Plata, before the boys led by Javier Mascherano left in the round of 16.

“The support of an entire stadium for you is always a positive thing. Not being in your country, but feeling local is an immense joy”, Fabricio Diaz highlighted to Fifa in the middle of the celebrations for getting into the semifinals of a World Cup.

However, that support may change on Thursday at the Diego Armando Maradona stadium in La Plata, some 60 km from Buenos Aires, when surprising Israel look to continue making history.

The Israelis surprised in the quarterfinals by eliminating Brazil, with the support of an Argentine fan who celebrated the fall of their archrival and supported Israel’s effort. The largest Jewish community in Latin America lives in Argentina, with some 250,000 members.

On Thursday, La Celeste may have to deal with the fact that for the first time in this Cup it may not be ‘local’, although it will be seen if they will present part of the Uruguayan residents in Argentina (some 130,000) and if fans from that country cross the Río de la Plata, also driven by a convenient exchange situation.
