Oscar Tabarez: "Luis Suarez was not ready to play"

If at all Luis wasn’t ready to play, why was he on the bench? And what was the purpose of keeping him on the bench while the team was loosing; and that clearly meant an early exit from the tournament? Why prefer Stuani (With just 7 goals in a whole season for M’Boro) to Suarez (Pichichi winner).
In an interview after the national team crashed out, Tabarez explained that he was never going to play Suarez because he was not 100 per cent fit having missed Uruguay’s opening 3-1 defeat to Mexico with a hamstring injury picked up in the Copa del Rey final.
Just like Portugal is a one man team, so is Uruguay, and the coach failed miserably. Tuseme tu alijikeketa…

For those who think Portugal is a one man team make this assumption at your own peril. It is true CR7 is the main man in the team and plays an almost sole role in the teams performance both as a captain and a player but this will play to their advantage where foolish opposition will only concentrate on shutting him out.
He might shadow the other players with his colossal talent but this will pave way for all manner of problems from the little considered players like quaresma and Nani in the frontline.

Watch this space, am certain Portugal will be at least at the semis
