In 2022, Uruguay is scheduled to play at its fourteenth FIFA World Cup 2022, which will be held in Qatar. At Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan, Uruguay will play South Korea in their first match of the tournament on November 24, 2022, in their first match of the tournament. As part of Group H of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Uruguay will be competing with Portugal, Ghana, and South Korea.
The Uruguay World Cup 2022 squad is expected to be announced in the month of October, following the two-time champions’ qualification for the tournament after finishing third in the South American section of qualifying.
Uruguay will be making its 14th appearance at the World Cup in this year’s edition. During the first-ever edition of the competition, which took place on their own soil in 1930, they won the championship. As well as being successful at the 1950 World Cup, Uruguay had a come-from-behind victory in the final that stunned the host Brazil.

How many players are Uruguay allowed to take to the Fifa World Cup 2022?
As a special measure brought into effect because of the COVID-19 pandemic, national managers were allowed to bring 26 players to last summer’s European Championship for the first time at a major tournament.
A 26-player squad has now been announced for the Qatar World Cup, which is an increase from the usual 23-man squads that have been used in the past.
When will the final Uruguay Fifa World Cup 2022 squad be announced?
Due to the extreme heat in Qatar during the middle of the year, the 2022 World Cup will be held in November and December rather than June and July.
There are usually a few weeks between the end of the European season and the start of the World Cup. In this case, it will take place right in the middle of it, right in the thick of the action.
Until October 20, Uruguay, as well as all other competing nations, must name their squads for the tournament. In other words, it is exactly two days before the opening match between Senegal and the Netherlands takes place.
Who will make the final Uruguay 2022 World Cup squad?
There is no doubt that Luis Suarez is Uruguay’s talisman, and he will be the first name on Aliou Cisse’s list of squad members for the upcoming 2022 World Cup. As a result, he might not start alongside Edinson Cavani this time, as Benfica striker Darwin Nunez has emerged as one of the most important players at the international level in the past few years.
Having moved to Tottenham in the January transfer window, Rodrigo Bentancur has impressed. As a former Uruguay international, he is one of the many technically proficient midfielders the country has produced in the last few years, along with Matias Vecino, Federico Valverde, and Giorgian de Arrascaeta.
There is a good chance that this will be Diego Godin’s last World Cup, as the 36-year-old is at the end of his career. Jose Gimenez and Ronald Araujo both fought hard for a place in Diego Alonso’s starting XI in Qatar, so the veteran might not necessarily start in Qatar.
