Until Uruguay ditch Cavani and Suarez as starters they will suffer

Nunez out wide was hard to watch and he still made a big impact

Uruguay have a good team but they need to use Cavani and Suarez only as impact subs, they should not be starting. They do not contribute to the team effort.

And yes I know Suarez only started but always seems to be one of them starting and shunting Nunez out wide to accommodate them. Also that Pellistri was awful

Yeah the players are there too be a very dangerous opponent, with Valverde, Bentacour etc behind all feeding Nunez on the counter. If they want to play around with more possession style of play then they won't go far imo.

They are really not playing to his strengths though imho, he's not perfect either of course, the odd misplaced pass etc

Uraguay have been crap. I had them as dark horses for the tournament but it seems
more likely they are for the meat grinder.

Does anyone think he suits playing wide for us more than central currently?

I know he's probably playing wide more as Firmino is playing well and we've had few options in attack with Jota & Diaz injured.

But I feel he gets more space out wide and is able to use his pace more.  He has shown he can create as well as score from that position and works hard enough defensively.

Our wide players have been the scorers under Klopp mostly with Mane / Salah over the years.  I suspect his future might be central when Diaz returns, but I think he might suit playing wide more.

There was a game or two where Diaz and Nunez were both available - even Jota was out there with them - and I remember them interchanging really well.  Nunez was nominally the centre forward with Diaz, Jota and Salah playing behind him but they constantly rotated which of them was the furthest forward and central.

Then Arsenal injured Diaz.  Then Jota got that freak injury against Man City.  Since then Nunez was left sided forward almost by default.

I expect once we get more options up-front again we'll see more of that interchanging as, like you, I think being too constrained centrally doesn't always suit Nunez.  Getting on the end of through balls and crosses - definitely - but when it becomes congested in the middle he's not got the finesse of our other forwards.

The quicker our players come back from that shitshow the better. It's a pity that Brazil look good, we'll probably only get the Brazilians back right at the end.

Seems Fabinho will be well-rested and if Brazil keep playing well, so will Alisson be!

I think he needs to impose himself on the game a lot more. I was impressed by Bentancur and Pellistri, I would have expected more from that team to be honest. Oh well.

It's more that the formation is not good. Just don't concede while him and Suarez just cause chaos up front. But seeing him playing basically LCM is ridiculous

WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!

Normally a player can look great on tubes, but one of the things that's encouraging for me is just the amount of youtube videos on him

What was he booked for? Have seen a clip of the booking on Twitter, but the ref isn't looking at Darwin and has no idea what has went on, so how has he deemed whatever Darwin does as worthy of a card?

Looked lively but never caught fire in this tournament, I think he had a couple of good bits of link play and some sprints and that was IT.

That Uruguay Manager should be out of a job, utter clown.

Didn't even use the attributes of Darwin, wanted him to be a auxiliary LB, and then takes him and Suarez off after an hour thinking 2-0 would be enough.

Glad he's out of this WC, week holiday then get him back to Klopp.

Yet again, my subscription to Newterp's newsletter pay dividends...

Darwin is Uruguayan. Plays football.

That presupposes a certain facility in the various dark arts. It just does.

It's how a relatively tiny country has been successful far out of proportion to the size of its populace.

They were through at that stage but South Korea second goal then meant Uruguay needed 2 goals.
