How Uruguay could line up against Argentina

Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Uruguay could line up for Saturday's Copa America clash with Argentina.

Uruguay manager Oscar Tabarez has several decisions to make as his side kick off their Copa America campaign with a major clash against Argentina on Saturday.

The squad will be boosted by the return of Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani, who recently served an international suspension.

Having netted 51 goals in 118 appearances for his nation, the 34-year-old should slot right back into the side to reform a potent front two alongside Luis Suarez.

Suarez will line up against his former Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi, having helped Atletico Madrid beat his old side to the La Liga title this season with 22 goals in the Spanish top flight.

In a clash with such a dangerous attacking side, Lucas Torreira should be deployed in midfield thanks to his impressive ability to win the ball back, as they will come up against a dynamic and quick midfield alongside a clinical front line.

He will shield the familiar centre-back pairing of Jose Gimenez and captain Diego Godin, with the pair having made a combined 203 international appearances and Godin holding the record for the most Uruguay caps with 143.

Experienced Fiorentina defender Martin Caceres will also play in the back four, having featured 104 times for his nation.

Uruguay possible starting lineup: Muslera; Gonzalez, Gimenez, Godin, Caceres; Torres, Valverde, Torreira, Rodriguez; Suarez, Cavani

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
