Inter midfielder Matias Vecino has been officially called up by Uruguayan national team head coach for the Celeste’s three World Cup qualifiers during the international break.
This is confirmed in a tweet from the Uruguayan FA’s official account, which lists the entire squad called up for the three qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, with Matias Vecino among the 26 players included.
Uruguay will face the likes of Colombia, Argentina, and Brazil over the break, with the three clashes potentially important for determining the order of qualification of South American teams for the World Cup in Qatar next year.
Vecino has been an important player in Tabarez’s national setup for a number of years, and the 30-year-old is likely to see extensive action with his national team as they aim to secure qualification for a fourth successive edition of the World Cup finals after participating in the last three.
