Edinson Cavani leads Uruguay squad for World Cup qualifiers

Manchester United duo Edinson Cavani and Facundo Pellistri have been named in the Uruguay squad for the upcoming 202 World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Chile.

Cavani, who is expected to leave United at the end of the season, has been included in the squad despite missing lots of football in the last few months.

United loanee Pellistri has made 20 appearances for Alaves this season and he recently shined whilst playing for his country.

Uruguay 26-man squad in full:

Sergio Rochet (Nacional), Fernando Muslera (Galatasaray), Sebastian Sosa (Independiente), Guillermo de Amores (Deportivo Cali), Ronald Araujo (Barcelona), Damian Suarez (Getafe), Diego Godin (Atletico Mineiro), Sebastian Coates (Sporting Lisbon), Martin Caceres (Levante), Jose Gimenez (Atletico Madrid), Leandro Cabrera (Espanyol), Mathias Olivera (Getafe), Mataas Vina (Roma), Federico Valverde (Real Madrid), Rodrigo Bentancur (Tottenham Hotspur), Lucas Torreira (Fiorentina), Matias Vecino (Inter Milan), Nicoas de la Cruz (River Plate), Giorgian de Arrascaeta (Flamengo), Facundo Torres (Orlando City), Diego Rossi (Fenerbahce), Facundo Pellistri (Alaves), Luis Suarez (Atletico Madrid), Edinson Cavani (Manchester United), Darwin Nunez (Benfica) & Maxi Gomez (Valencia).

Cavani has not played anywhere near enough for United this season and Ralf Rangnick will be hoping he avoids picking up another injury while away with Uruguay.
