"I think coach Tabarez will ask me for information about Italy and Juventus, especially my club team-mates," the 27-year-old was quoted as saying in Gazzetta dello Sport.
"All tacticians know Andrea Pirlo, so I'll just reiterate to Tabarez how important it is to disturb him when he's in possession.
"Claudio Marchisio has some standard movements, so in this case my advice could be very useful. He knows how to burst between the lines and has a great shot from distance. I'll describe him in great detail.
"Giorgio Chiellini is a very good friend, while Andrea Barzagli and Leonardo Bonucci are very experienced.
"I don’t expect Italy to put 10 men behind the ball, as that is not their style. It suits us, as Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani become deadly with a little space. We'll play on the counterattack."
After defeating England 2-1 on Thursday, Uruguay must now overcome Italy to progress to the last-16 and Caceres expressed his confidence in his side's ability to cause their opponents serious problems.
"Cavani with Suarez forms one of the best strike partnerships in the world," he continued.

"Italy's defeat to Costa Rica surprised us all. It would've been better for us if the Azzurri had won. That way a draw was enough for both teams."
