Barely anything to to for most of the game, but was quick off his line to deny Cavani a one-on-one.
A solid international debut for the Chelsea defender, who got forward with purpose, while providing his defence with a good degree of protection on the flanks.
Made an excellent covering play in the first half to hack away a dangerous Caceres pass right in front of Suarez.
The veteran defender made his 100th appearance for Spain tonight, but it was far from a happy milestone for the Barca man. Saw a goal disallowed for offside, moments before getting turned by Rodriguez for Uruguay’s first goal. Substituted at half-time for club team-mate Pique.
Won virtually everything in the air, and was not found wanting for effort when it came to closing down the mobile pair of Cavani and Suarez.
As always, he played a solid game in both halves of the field, protecting his back four well, while providing some nice moments in attack linking with his fellow midfielders.
Sprayed some eye-catching passes around the field, but the feeling persists that there is still a lot more to come from Cazorla on the international stage. Capable of a lot more.
Opened the scoring with a goal that owed everything to Muslera's shoddy handling, but it was a deserved reward for an excellent game, where he took matters by the scruff of the neck and drove his team forward in attack time and time again.
Andrés Iniesta Luján
Showcased his customary blend of silky footwork and excellent decision making, but did not quite reach the heights of his recent displays for Barcelona. Taken off in the second half for Isco.
Peppered Muslera’s goal with one rasping drive from 20 yards out that the keeper did well to hold on to. But it was not the most enterprising display from the Chelsea man, who played within himself before departing during the interval.
Top of the Match
His scintillating international form continued as he struck his eighth and ninth goals for la Roja in the season. Both of his second half goals were taken with the clinical accuracy that we have come to expect from Pedro.
Given a late run out in defence, barely tested.
Provided Pedro with a superb assist after winning the ball deep inside the Uruguay half and sliding his Barca teammate through.
Made his long awaited international debut, and showed off a few mazy dribbles, but perhaps over-elaborated on occasions.
Sloppy in possession after his introduction, not the best debut for the midfielder.
Threatening both on and off the ball, and despite missing one or two efforts, kept his head to tee up Pedro for Spain's third.
Committed an unforgivable error early in the first half when he let an entirely catchable Fabregas shot slip squarely from his grasp and into the back of the net.
Lucky to avoid a booking for a late challenge on Fabregas near the end of the first half. Really found wanting on a number of Spain attacks as his marking was quite poor.
Not found lacking in effort, but could have been a bit more careful with the ball, as he lost possession in dangerous areas a few times.
An enterprising performance from the full-back, who marauded up and down the wings with ease. Posed plenty of problems for the Spain defence with his passing from deep areas, and with one such delivery, he set up Rodriguez’s goal.
Plenty of energy from the full-back, who played well in both halves of the field. His final ball, however, was lacking on a few crucial attacks.
Not the most confident presence on the ball, as he gave the ball away needlessly to hand Spain the momentum more than once.
Took his goal superbly, executing a breathtaking turn to free himself from Puyol and put him in position to finish. Not always able to live up to those standards though, as he did not see much of the ball in the second half.
Held his own at times against his formidable Spain counterparts, working hard in midfield, while providing a few incisive passes from deep.
Had absolutely no answer for the quick passing and intricate triangles of Fabregas and Co. in midfield, and was largely reduced to chasing shadows off the ball.
Put in a lot of work up front, closing down the entire Spain defensive line and dropping deep to receive the ball. However, despite his admirable effort, his end product was off, as he spurned one or two half chances.
Very assured when on the ball, and showed some encouraging signs with his partnership alongside Cavani up top for Uruguay. Did not get many goalscoring opportunities but was still difficult for the defence to deal with.
Gave his side some much-needed fresh legs on the flanks to help keep the score respectable.
