It is natural to think that such a team will take part in any global tournament if it laughs. But where is it!
Uruguay seems to be struggling to register for the World Cup in Qatar. They lost 3-0 against Bolivia this morning.
A pair of goals from forward Juan Ars and a goal from striker Marcelo Moreno confirmed Uruguay’s rate. With this, Uruguay lost four matches in a row in the World Cup qualifiers. For the first time in their history, Uruguay lost four matches in a row in the qualifying round.

The fifth team will play in the play-off. According to the current status of the points list, Uruguay will not get a chance in the play-offs either. After playing 14 matches, the team is at number seven with only 16 points.

Chile’s six points are equal to Uruguay’s, but Suarez is behind in goal difference. Bolivia, at number eight, is just one point behind. So much can still happen in the last two rounds. Suarez, Cavani are still struggling to score despite Uruguay. They have scored only 14 goals in 14 matches, digesting seven more goals.
Uruguay has been embroiled in controversy over the removal of longtime veteran coach Oscar Tabarez. Tabarez himself has refused to resign, saying “I do not want to give up now. If the decision to cut me is made, I will respect it. But I don’t know who will ask me, especially what I have done for the team for a decade and a half. “
