History of the Uruguay National Football Team

The Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) was founded in 1900 and is therefore one of the oldest South American sporting federations.

In 1906, the Uruguay national team played against neighbours Argentina in what was a first official international fixture for both the teams involved. The Argentinians were victorious in Montevideo, by six goals to zero.

AUF became a member of CONMEBOL (the governing body of football in South America) in 1916 and gained full affiliation with FIFA in 1923.

Uruguay hosted the first-ever FIFA World Cup in 1930 and, to date, the nation has participated in no fewer than 14 finals tournaments.

La Celeste achieved its highest world ranking of 2nd in 2012.

Uruguay National Team at the FIFA World Cup

In 1930, Uruguay staged the inaugural FIFA World Cup. The host nation was crowned the first world champions after beating Argentina in the final at Estadio Centenario in Montevideo.

Uruguay next participated in the 1950 tournament and once again triumphed on the world stage, this time defeating hosts Brazil (2-1) at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

At the following edition in 1954, Uruguay claimed fourth-place after losing in the semi-finals to eventual runners-up Hungary. The South American side again finished fourth in 1970, losing in the semis to Brazil who went on to thrash Italy in the final.

In more recent times, Uruguay once again reached the last-four in South Africa 2010. A thrilling five-goal contest ensued in Cape Town, though Uruguay were on the wrong side of the 3-2 scoreline against the Netherlands. An identical scoreline occurred in the third-place play-off, with Germany claiming the bronze medal.

In 2018, Uruguay claimed maximum points in the group stage before edging Portugal in the Round of 16. However, La Celeste were eliminated in the quarter-finals by eventual world champions France.

Uruguay made its 14th appearance at the World Cup finals in 2022, but crashed out at the group stage for only the second time since 1974.

Uruguay National Team at Other Major Tournaments

Uruguay were a dominant force in South American football in the early 20th century, winning three of the first four editions of the South American Championship (today known as Copa America).

La Celeste won the continental showpiece for a 10th time in 1959, and a record 15th in 2011 when they beat Paraguay convincingly in the final. This feat was equalled in 2021, when Argentina won the Copa America title for a 15th time.

Uruguay also claimed the gold medal at the 1924 Olympic Games and again four years later.

Best Uruguay Football Players

Diego Godin earned 161 international caps, more than any other player in the history of Uruguay football. The central defender made almost 400 appearances across a nine-year spell with Atletico Madrid before moving to Inter Milan in 2019.

Diego Forlan made 112 appearances for La Celeste and scored 36 goals in Uruguay colours. He was the recipient of the Golden Ball (Best Player) at the 2010 World Cup after scoring a joint-highest five goals and guiding his nation to the semi-finals in South Africa. At club level, Forlan represented the likes of Manchester United, Villarreal and Atletico Madrid.

Edinson Cavani appeared 136 times for his country and tallied 58 goals. The attacker also played for Napoli in Serie A and Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1.

Fernando Muslera racked up more than 130 appearances for Uruguay and has spent the bulk of his career with Galatasaray, featuring more than 475 times for the Turkish giants.

Luis Suarez is the highest-scoring player in the history of the Uruguay national football team, with no fewer than 68 international goals to his name. 'El Pistolero' plied his trade for AFC Ajax, Liverpool and FC Barcelona among others.

In 2022, 11 years after Suarez signed for Liverpool, the Merseyside club purchased another Uruguayan striker in Darwin Nunez. He moved to Anfield from Liga Portugal outfit SL Benfica, for a transfer fee in the region of €75 million.

Other current Uruguay stars include Federico Valverde. The midfielder became a Real Madrid player in 2016 and he was named national team captain in 2023.

Ronald Araujo transferred to Barcelona in 2018, while Rodrigo Bentancur played for Juventus before joining English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur in 2022.

Uruguay National Football Team – Home Stadium

The primary stadium used for hosting Uruguay national team matches is the Estadio Centenario in Montevideo. This ground has a capacity of 60,000 and it hosted the 1930 World Cup final between Uruguay and Argentina.

Very occasionally are Uruguay's international fixtures held at alternative venues, such as Estadio Gran Parque Central and Estadio Campeón del Siglo, both in Montevideo.
