After both beating England but losing to Costa Rica, Italy and Uruguay will meet in their final game of World Cup Group D in a winner-takes-all clash that will determine who progresses to the last 16 of this summer’s tournament.
In a match that looks too close to call, a draw would be sufficient for Italy to go through, but Uruguay can still knock the 2006 winners out of the tournament and join surprise package Costa Rica in the next round with a victory to follow up their success over England last week.
The return of Liverpool star and key striker Luis Suarez proved crucial as he scored twice on his comeback from injury to down the Three Lions, and the South Americans will be looking to him again on Tuesday afternoon as they hope to book their place in the knockout stages of the competition.
Italy, meanwhile, will be hoping to bounce back after their surprise defeat to Costa Rica, and will take some confidence from their good record against Uruguay, whom they have never lost to at a World Cup and who they beat on penalties at last year’s Confederations Cup.
