Diego Alonso after defeating Canada: “I told Ronald privately, I’ll wait for him” – The Oval – 09/27/2022

Uruguay coach Diego Alonso referred to Celeste’s 2-0 victory, Tuesday, over Canada, and said that he found positive feelings in his team, especially in the first half.

“Overall, we played the first part very well, we were able to be aggressive in pressure and the last 15 give me a feeling that we lost control a little bit because we played a lot in the transition,” he analyzed on the AUFTV broadcast.

DT highlighted Uruguay’s pressure in the second half, especially during the first quarter of the match, and noted that the “rotation” of the players could give him “the possibility of making a better team”. During the Austria-Slovakia tour, only Brian Ocampo, Leandro Cabrera and the substitute goalkeepers were used.

When asked about Ronald Araujo’s injury, he was clear in his position: “The first thing to do is wait and analyze all situations. We have an advantage over other World Cups, which is that we have three more players. Before that there were only 23 players.; Today we have 26 This allows us to have more diversity on campus.”

Alonso also gave details of the conversation he had with the player, where he made it clear that he would wait for him until the last moment: “I told Ronald privately: I will wait for him. We think that at the medical level he has clear options to be able to reach the World Cup. Let’s wait for our development (…) They are that he can arrive.”

That we got, they allowed us to see players and that we have that possibility opens up. In front of them so that I can observe them and they can earn a place.”
