Can you name every Uruguayan to appear in the Premier League?
Uruguay have exported some fine footballers down the years, including Liverpool-bound Darwin Nunez – but can you name everyone from the country that’s played in the Premier League?
While many people couldn’t point to it on a map, Uruguay are incredibly proud of its footballing achievements.
The South American country hosted, and won, the first World Cup in 1930 and won it again in 1950 for good measure. When stacked alongside two Olympic gold medals and 15 Copa Americas, it’s easy to see why Uruguayans take their football incredibly seriously.
And they’ve exported a number of talented players over the years, especially since the national team’s renaissance in the 2010s, with Nunez becoming the latest to move to the Premier League after his £85million switch to Liverpool.
While players from other nations can sometimes struggle to acclimatise to English life, Uruguayans are used to the rain and cold on these isles.
Twenty-three players from Uruguay have played a Premier League match and we’re asking you to name them all. We’ve given you the clubs each player represented and an asterisk denotes that they are currently playing in the Premier League.
The score to beat from the Planet Football office is just 7/23.
And, if you’re in the mood for another challenge, why not try naming Liverpool’s top 30 goalscorers of the Premier League era?
