For Uruguay, Luis Suarez returns from suspension, so coach Oscar Tabarez will have to accomodate both the Liverpool forward and Edinson Cavani into the side. Uruguay are coming off the end of a six-match winless run after they got into real trouble in their World Cup Qualifying campaign, but a recent win in Venezuela gave them a much-needed boost which should put their camp in high spirits.

Spain, meanwhile, will be looking to complete the set — the Confederations Cup is the only competitive tournament which has eluded this team, and they will be as determined as ever to secure victory and lay down a warning market for their World Cup campaign this time next year. via –
