2018 World Cup Qualification
Oscar Tabarez's men finished second in South American qualification, albeit they were 10 points behind Brazil who topped the overall table.
Home advantage was especially prominent with Uruguay taking 22 points from a possible 27 in front of their own fans but picking up just nine on the road.
Edinson Cavani netted 10 of the team's 32 goals on the road to Russia with Luis Suarez accounting for five.
World Cup History
Winners of the first World Cup back in 1930 and again in 1950, Uruguay have a rich history at international football's top table.
The South Americans finished fourth in 2010, the third time they've reached that stage of the competition, but were knocked out by Colombia four years ago in the last 16 phase.
