Uruguay – Panama, Preview: data, information, date, time and more about the Cuba America crossing

On Sunday, Uruguay will face Panama starting at 10:00pm (URU/ARG) at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami in the first Group C date of the Copa America.

Because it’s important

The match is of great importance because it will mark the first appearance of Marcelo Bielsa’s team in the continental competition, which they arrive as one of the leading favorites to compete for the title. For Panama, this will be an opportunity to surprise the football continent, against the biggest winners in the history of the tournament alongside Argentina.

Players to watch

In Uruguay, figures of the stature of Federico Valverde, Darwin Nunez, Ronald Araujo, Manuel Ugarte and Rodrigo Bentancur emerge as the best figures, but Bielsa’s team also includes players with a formidable hierarchy such as Luis Suarez, who despite being 37 is not a goal-getter. To be a key player, he presents himself as a footballer with enormous influence for both La Celeste and his rivals. In Panama, goalkeeper Luis Mejía, midfielder Adalberto Carrasquilla and Michael Amir Murillo appear to be the main players to follow.

This is how teams arrive

Uruguay arrives in preparation for the first showing of the Copa America. Under Marcelo Bielsa, La Celeste not only found a version of the game that gave hope to footballers and fans, but the results also accompanied the team. In addition to the large attendance in the qualifiers, which featured victories over Argentina and Brazil, there is the addition of the preparatory match in which Uruguay defeated Mexico 4-0 in Denver, United States.

Last date

Uruguay defeated Panama in the four matches it played in history. The Celeste’s last victory over the Panamanians was on June 11, 2022 at the Centenario Stadium, with a score of 5-0. Edinson Cavani scored two goals, one for Nicolas de la Cruz, one for Nicolas Rossi, and the other for Maximiliano Gomez.
