MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) — Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez has relied heavily on experience in his 23-man squad for the Copa America, including Barcelona star Luis Suarez, who is recovering from an injury.
Tabarez will coach Uruguay at a Copa America for the sixth time, and included a number of veterans like Suarez, Edinson Cavani and Diego Godin.
However, Suarez is still a doubt for the tournament as he is recovering from surgery on his right knee.
The only player from Uruguay’s domestic league to be included was Penarol’s 24-year-old midfielder Giovanni Gonzalez.
Uruguay has won the Copa America 15 times. Argentina has 14 trophies of the tournament, while host Brazil only has eight.
