Uruguay face tactical dilemma

“It’s South America’s newest force against the oldest when Ecuador meet Uruguay this Saturday in a crunch World Cup qualifier. It is a match with much to teach about the geography of the continent and the history of the game in this part of the world. Introduced mainly by the British, football first caught on in the South Cone, in Montevideo and Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo – a region that was going through large scale immigration and rapid urbanisation.” (BBC – Tim Vickery)
