Uruguay qualified for the upcoming 2022 World Cup after finishing third in the CONMEBOL qualifiers behind Brazil and Argentina.
They have a rich history at the tournament, hosting the first World Cup in 1930 and going on to win it after emerging triumphant over Argentina in the final.
They won their second Jules Rimet trophy in 1950 causing a massive upset by beating Brazil at a chalk-a-block Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.
On their last participation in 2018, they were beaten by eventual champions France in the quarter-finals and Diego Alonso and his men will be hopeful of improving on that performance this time around.
They have been placed in Group H along with Portugal, Ghana, and South Korea.
