Key player (Uruguay)
Even though Suarez and Cavani both play the No.9 position for their respective clubs – Barcelona and Paris Saintgermain – it doesn’t seem to have stopped them from combining effectively as a strike duo nationally. Yet, Suarez’s is the more pronounced role. The 31yearold is Uruguay’s alltime leading scorer with 50 goals (Cavani has 42). But the Barcelona forward has more than double the number of assists – 26 to 12 – making him crucial to Uruguay’s chances.
