Uruguay player ratings v Colombia: Suarez factor showed influence

Uruguay looked a flat and un-motivated side against Colombia without Liverpool striker Luis Suarez leading the line.

Fernando Muslera 6 - Played well making some good saves, could do nothing about two excellent goals.

Maximiliano Pereira 6 - Had a relatively ok game, nearly scored as well if it wasn’t for a great save from David Ospina.

Jose Maria Gimenez 5 - Looked out of sorts at the back and couldn’t handle all the Colombia pressure being thrown his way.

Diego Godin 5 - Terrible game, couldn’t keep up with the pace of the game and gave away plenty of fouls.

Martin Caceres 6 - Played as best he could, passed well and tackled ok, but was just completely outclassed today.

Alvaro Pereira 6 - Pereira couldn’t quite grasp a hold of the game today and went missing on occasions.

Alvaro Rafael Gonzalez 6 - Much like Alvaro Pereira, spent most of the game watching it, like the rest of us.

Egidio Arevalo Rios 6 - Made some really good tackles and always kept going but was just outnumbered in midfield.

Cristian Rodriguez 7 - Uruguay’s only stand out player, gave it his all and played with plenty of spirit.

Diego Forlan 4 - Terrible game, barely had any hold over the it and did absolutely nothing up front.

Edinson Cavani 6 - You could see the class was there, but much like his World Cup, he spent the game frustrated. 


Gastón Ramírez 5 - After coming on, really made no influence and kept the game at much the same as it was.

Christian Stuani 5 - Came on at the same time as the Southampton man and much like him, added nothing to the game.

Abel Hernández - N/A
