Uruguay Football World Cup team yielded meekly to Argentina in a 3-0 defeat last month but this time they took the game to their opponents and will feel upset at emerging pointless after having more of the chances in front of their home fans.

“Sometimes you just have to win and we managed that, not playing well, certainly, but it still counts.”

Argentine coach Lionel Scaloni said.

The match was decided by a moment of smartness from Di Maria after just six minutes. Young Uruguayan left-back Joaquin Piquerez lost possession on the advantage of the penalty area and Di Maria curled an inspiring shot over helpless keeper Fernando Muslera.

Luis Suarez had already forced Emiliano Martinez into a good save at the other end and the Atletico Madrid striker also hit the post after half an hour. The second half was more even and both keepers made central saves but Uruguay’s lack of firepower they have now scored only two goals in their last five games meant they resisted against a naturally solid Argentina Football World Cup team.

Goalkeeper Martinez was also privileged in the dying minutes when first Julian Alvarez put a free header over the bar and then the keeper felt a long-range shot but was able to recover before it tiptoed into the net behind him. To know more about FIFA World Cup Tickets click here.

Messi, who missed his last two Paris St Germain games through injury, replaced Giovani Lo Celso with 14 minutes left for the Argentina Football World Cup team but made little impact for a side that saw their unbeaten streak increase to 26 games, a run that stretches back more than two years.

“They put pressure on us, they have experienced players, but we were lucky to be able to maintain our unbeaten run and get all three points,”

Defender Nicolas Otamendi said.

We know how problematic it is to play here and we knew that they were under a lot of heaviness to win. We had to be strong when the game got difficult but we were able to keep a clean sheet. The victory takes Argentina’s Football World Cup team to 28 points, six behind Brazil, who on Thursday became the first South American team to guarantee their place in FIFA World Cup 2022 after beating Colombia 1-0.

The top four teams qualify inevitably for the finals and the fifth-placed side goes into an inter-regional playoff. Uruguay Football World Cup team remain on 16 points, fourth equal with Chile and Colombia. They head to Bolivia to aspect the home side at high elevation, while Argentina is at home to Brazil the same night.
