The Uruguayan women’s team defeated 3-0 this Thursday Boca Juniors in a friendly match played at the Pedro Pompilio Complex. La Celeste will play again in Argentina, facing River in Ezeiza on Saturday.
The cast led by Ariel Longo opened the scoring at 32 ‘of the first half, with a penalty goal from goalkeeper Sofia Olivera (a former Peñarol player, currently tackling in Rosario Central).
In addition, a new penalty converted by Olivera allowed Celeste to celebrate again at 69 ‘, and three minutes later came the final 3-0 with the definition of the forward Wendy Carballo (who in Uruguay played in Arachanas and who has been a footballer for Inter de Porto Alegre since February).
Uruguay’s starting team consisted of Olivera in goal, defenders Laura Felipe, Yannel Correa, Daiana Farías and Stephanie Tregartten, midfielders Mariana Pion, Pamela González (captain), Ximena Velazco and Zulma Daer, and the offensive duo was made up of Carolina Birizamberri and Belén Aquino.
This is the first of the two friendlies that the Uruguayan National Team will play this week in Argentina, where next Saturday they will play against River in Ezeiza. These matches take place within the framework of the Uruguayan preparation thinking about the Copa América 2022, a contest that will define CONMEBOL’s quotas for the World Cup in Australia-New Zealand 2023.
The blue team that traveled to Argentina does not have players from the National Football Club or Racing, given that these teams will play the only match of the Uruguayan First Division Championship to be played this weekend.
The tricolores and those of Sayago will face each other this Sunday at hour 16 in Roberto Park for the date 6, a stage that was postponed in its entirety with this exception generated by the participation of the Bolsa in the women’s Libertadores (which will begin on November 3 in Asunción and whose final will be played on Sunday, November 21 in the Gran Parque Central).
