The legend gave the Uruguayan squad high marks for their counter-attacking prowess in an interview with TyC Sports.
He went on to say that it’s feasible because of great players like Darwin Nunez.
His words were:
“Uruguay are good at rebounding and playing in space on counter attack. They have excellent players for that like Darwin [Núñez]…”
