URUGUAY

As a former player of the year in Holland and England, Luis Suarez currently stands amongst the highest echelons of the game.
With remarkable technical ability the Liverpool and Uruguay forward seems to have everything in his locker. Pace, intelligence, aerial ability and a powerful shot but it is his amazing ability to dribble through defences that sets him apart. It has been remarked that "he could nutmeg a Mermaid!".

At the 2011 Copa América, Suárez scored four goals for Uruguay as they won a record fifteenth Copa and was named Player of the Tournament. In 2013, he became Uruguay's all-time record goalscorer with 35 goals.
The unpredictable nature of Suarez, good and bad, aligned to his devastating skills make him a firm fans favourite for whoever he plays for and it seems inevitable that a world record transfer fee is just around the corner.

Enzo Francescoli is one of the best players in Uruguay's history, and a huge favourite with fans. “El Principe” holds the record of most appearances for an outfield player in the national team and helped Uruguay to win Copa America three times. He also won the South American footballer of the year in 1984 as well as 1995.

As an attacking midfielder he was noted for his vision, grace and fluid abilities on the ball. These qualities would later influence the style of French midfielder Zinedine Zidane, who has stated that Francescoli was his favorite player as a young boy and even named one of his sons Enzo as a homage to him.

He was an oasis of light in a dark time for Uruguayan football – A gifted play maker, once described as a football architect, Francescoli was also just about the only member of the hard-as-nails Uruguay team who did not seem primarily driven by the urge to kick his opponent off the field.
