The forward of Liverpool Federico Martinez was summoned this Saturday by the coaching staff headed by Oscar Washington Tabárez for the meeting between Bolivia and Uruguay for the fourteenth day of South American qualifiers to the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
This was announced by the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) in a statement in which it did not detail that the team had any casualties for the match to be played this Tuesday at the Hernando Siles stadium in La Paz.
In this way, Martínez will return to play with the national team after two months without doing so.
His last minutes with La Celeste were on September 9 in the game in which his team beat Ecuador 1-0 in Montevideo.. There, the forward jumped off the bench in the 84th minute in place of Brian Rodriguez.
This Saturday, Uruguay resumed training thinking about the next match.
As could be seen in images published by the AUF, the field players carried out different exercises in the gym and on the field.
Meanwhile, goalkeepers Fernando Muslera, Martín Campaña and Kevin Dawson worked separately with the ball.
This Monday, Uruguay will travel to Bolivia to play a day later against the local.
After thirteen games played, La Celeste is in sixth position with 16 points, the same as Chile and Colombia have, which are in fourth and fifth position, respectively, by goal difference.
Higher up, Brazil reached 34 units and qualified for the World Cup in Qatar, Argentina reached 28 and Ecuador at 20.
The first two played one game less, the one that the Brazilian authorities suspended last September due to the line-up of Argentine players who play in the English League.
