Liverpool striker experiments with new role ahead of Spain clash!
Uruguay have come up with a novel way of stopping world and European champions Spain from scoring in their friendly encounter in Doha on Wednesday night, and it involves putting deadly front man Luis Suarez in goal!
It seems like Diego Forlan has a joke to tell…
The Internacional striker will return to serious business when Uruguay take on Spain in a friendly in Qatar on Wednesday.
The match will be played in the Khalifa International Stadium after the Qatar government paid the Spanish football federation close to US$4million to switch the friendly to Doha
Uruguay will be without Gaston Ramirez, who picked up an injury in Southampton’s draw with Wigan on Saturday.
fanatix tickets– Aston Villa vs Liverpool tickets are on sale from £30 for the match on March 31st at Villa Park.
But Oscar Tabarez does have Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani and Forlan available to face the world champions.
The attacking trio may all start together for the first time since a 3-0 defeat to Argentina in October.
Spain have won two of their last three encounters against Uruguay, who have won just one of their last six matches.
That poor form sees them currently fifth in the South American World Cup qualifying group, eight points behind leaders Argentina.
Spain are unbeaten in 17 matches but Uruguay will provide more of challenge to Spain’s last three friendly opponents – Panama, Saudi Arabia and Puerto Rico.
Uruguay have conceded 12 goals in their last four matches and if this training session is anything to go by, Fernando Muslera may lose his place between the sticks to Suarez.
Come to think about it, he does a reputation of being pretty handy.
