Team news & rosters

Position Uruguay roster
Goalkeepers Muslera, Campana, Rochet*
Defenders Godin, Caceres, Gimenez, Coates. Vina, Gonzalez, Araujo, Piquerez
Midfielders Vecino, Nandez, Bentancur, De Arrascaeta, Valverde, Torreira, Pereiro, De la Cruz, Gorriaran
Forwards Suarez, Cavani, Rodriguez, Torres, Nunez, Alvarez

*denotes uncapped player

Having enjoyed a superb September international break with two wins and a draw, Oscar Tabarez has put La Celeste back on course to take their place at next year's showpiece tournament.

The return of old warhorses like Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani will bolster their experience too, with just the one uncapped player - goalkeeper Sergio Rochet - selected.

Predicted Uruguay starting XI:  Muslera; Nandez, Gimenez, Godin, Vina; Valverde, Vecino, Bentancur; Suarez, Cavani, Rodriguez.

Position Colombia roster
Goalkeepers Ospina, Vargas, Quintana*
Defenders Sanchez, Mina, Tesillo, Medina, Mojica, Munoz, Lucumí, Cuesta
Midfielders Cuadrado, Barrios, Uribe, Quintero, Lerma, Cuellar, Alvarez Balanta, Candelo*
Forwards Falcao, Zapata, Diaz, Martinez, Borre, Sinisterra

*denotes uncapped player

Almost a year into his second spell at the helm of Los Cafeteros, Reinaldo Rueda knows a thing or two about World Cups, having coached Honduras at South Africa 2010 and Ecuador at Brazil 2014.

With only two uncapped players among his ranks, he too has favoured experience - but much will hinge up front on veteran Radamel Falcao, back in the fold after missing this year's Copa America.

Predicted Colombia starting XI: Ospina; Cuadrado, Cuesta, Mina, Tesillo; Quintero, Barrios, Uribe, Diaz; Falcao, Zapata.
