China Cup Final – International Football Friendly
Date: 26th March 2018, Monday
Kick-off at 11:35am UK time/ 12:35 CET
Venue: Guangxi Sports Center (Nanning, China).
Wales and Uruguay lock horns in the final game of the 2018 China Cup and both teams are coming on the back of convincing wins.
The Welsh football team started a new era under Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs with a thumping 6-0 victory over China. Gareth Bale scored a hat-trick to take his tally to 29 international goals and surpass Ian Rush to become the record scorer for Wales. That’s not all, the likes of Declan John and Harry Wilson recalled to the national squad for the first time in 3 years made significant contributors.
On the other hand, Uruguay silenced the critics by easing past Czech Republic 2-0. The goals came in first half of the game from the boots of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. The win came in good time for Oscar Tabarez, who has been under some pressure with his team managing a humble 2 wins from the previous 11 games.
There lone head-to-head meeting between Uruguay and Wales happened in a friendly back in 1986. It was a drab match with the teams sharing the spoils of a goal-less draw.
Both teams will be looking to bag another win on Monday to wrap up month on a high note. The 4-4-2 formation used by Giggs in the 6-0 thrashing of China reckons at his ambitions to play attacking football with Wales, which is certainly an upgrade of Chris Coleman era. Meanwhile, Uruguay are looking at the same direction, plus they have the advantage with world-class players in their ranks. Yet, the South Americans are not that solid in their defense.
This is the main reason why punters must expect an entertaining encounter when Wales and Uruguay take the field on Monday. My money is on both teams to score market, whereas the long-shot can be combining this with the Uruguay win.
