since the start of the 2010 world cup, uruguay has been ritually ignored and forced to play many-a-game at the ungodly hour of 13:30 CET (12:30 GMT). so tonight when they play in the evening hours for the second time in 4 weeks, will the netherlands team be up for playing a bit of handball?
uruguay is a football nation, despite the fact that puma (the team sponsor) failed to attach 2 stars to the team jersy to signify uruguay having won in 1930 and 1950. it’s been 60 years since their last world cup. might be time for a second. the little engine that could just keeps rolling. but will have a difficult time beating holland this evening given that luis suarez (no relation to betty suarez) won’t be around to play a bit of basketball during the game. diego forlan, whose name rhymes with flan, is adept at making difficult goals and free kicks outside far outside the penalty area, so holland and perhaps later germany, should beware.
