Key player (Uruguay)

Sportstar - - GROUP A -

Luiz Suarez

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.
