Uruguay have named Diego Forlan and Edinson Cavani in their starting lineup for this evening's international friendly against Northern Ireland.

There is no Luis Suarez for the South Americans, as he continues his recovery from knee surgery.

The midfield is composed of Walter Gargano, Alvaro Pereira and Cristian Rodriguez, while Liverpool's Sebastian Coates starts in defence.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill has handed a debut to Doncaster Rovers defender Luke McCullough.

They are without a number of first-team regulars, but Aaron Hughes, Steven Davis and Chris Baird all start, with Billy McKay leading the attack.

Uruguay: Muslera, Pereira, Lugano, Coates, Caceres, Ramirez, Gargano, Arevalo, Rodriguez, Forlan, Cavani

Northern Ireland: Caroll, Evans, McCullough, Clingan, Baird, Hughes, McGinn, Davis, McKay, Norwood, Ferguson
