Uruguay vs. Iran

The FIFA window of international friendlies will not give respite and the selected ones take the opportunity to set up for what will be the Qatar 2022 World Cup to be played next November. Indeed, two of the teams that will be protagonists will face each other in a preparation duel in which Uruguay and Iran will have the opportunity to put themselves to the test.

On the one hand, the Celeste led by Diego Alonso knew how to suffer in the Conmebol Qualifiers to qualify for the Qatar World Cup in line with what was expected by sports forecasts . Now, the coach will look for the best version of his team taking into account the complexity of the pairing during the group stage.

For its part, Iran became one of the revelations of sports predictions and despite the fact that it was not a clear favorite to win its place in the World Cup, the team commanded by Carlos Queiroz surprised locals and strangers and wants to repeat the feat in Qatar.

Last Uruguay matches

The departure of Oscar Washington Tabárez at the head of La Celeste was a direct stab at the hearts of the fans. The experienced Uruguayan technical director earned the respect of locals and strangers after 221 games at the helm of La Celeste and many joys placing Uruguay at the top of international football.

Diego Alonso had the heavy burden of inheriting the project and quickly managed to assimilate the challenge that lay ahead. Uruguay had to suffer more than necessary to qualify for the Conmebol Qualifiers, although it was able to finish in third place in the standings as a result of 28 points in 18 games at stake with 8 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses. Likewise, La Celeste converted 22 goals in favor and received the same amount, which reflects that Alonso's team had many defensive problems, a facet in which Uruguay has always stood out historically.

The biggest challenge for Diego Alonso will be to find the perfect balance between attack and defense knowing that he has players of great hierarchy and high level such as Bentancur and Valverde in midfield or Cavani and Suárez in attack. Likewise, consolidating the defense with Muslera, Godín and José María Giménez will be the other key point that could be the difference between qualifying or being eliminated in the group stage of Qatar 2022.

Uruguay's last clashes were as follows: it was beaten 4-1 against Brazil, in the Maracana, it fell 1-0 to Argentina in line with what was expected by sports betting , it was beaten 3-0 against Bolivia, it recovered with a win 1-0 against Paraguay, thrashed Venezuela 4-1, defeated Peru 1-0 and defeated Chile 2-0 as a visitor, on the last day.

It is worth remembering that Uruguay will be part of Group H along with South Korea, Ghana and Portugal in one of the most complex pairings of the World Cup.

Last Iran matches

Not even the most optimistic of Iranian fans would have imagined being part of the next edition of Qatar 2022. However, with 60 days to go, they are already preparing their bags to live a unique and unmissable experience up close.

Carlos Queiroz will look for Iran to be a tough team to crack, regardless of the rival on duty or the stars his team faces. It is clear that Iran has transformed into an annoying team with a defensive football idea and two lines of four players who stick to guarding their own goal.

Hitting at the right times was one of the arguments Iran exhibited throughout the Asian Qualifiers. And it was thanks to this that they managed to prevail in Group A culminating as leader after 25 points harvested in 10 games played with 8 wins, a draw and just one loss. In addition, Iran scored 15 goals and only conceded 4 goals, being the second team with the most clean sheets.

The last confrontations of Iran were as follows: they drew goalless against Lebanon, 1-1 against South Korea, thrashed Syria 3-0 as sports betting had anticipated , won 1-0 against Iraq, defeated 1-0 against The United Arab Emirates lost 2-0 to South Korea and defeated Lebanon 2-0 on the last day.

It is worth remembering that Iran will be part of group B along with England, the United States and Wales.
