Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez on Wednesday made two changes to his team to face Ghana in Friday’s World Cup quarter-finals.
Defender Diego Godin and midfielder Alvaro Pereira, who featured in Saturday’s 2-1 win over South Korea in the last 16, have been replaced by Mauricio Victorino and Alvaro Fernandez.
Godin suffered a thigh injury against South Korea while the decision to use Fernandez instead of Pereira is a tactical decision.
Uruguay team to play Ghana:
Fernando Muslera, Maximiliano Perreira, Diego Lugano (capt.), Mauricio Victorino, Jorge Fucile, Egidio Arevalo, Diego Perez, Alvaro Fernandez, Diego Forlan, Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani.
