The last time Uruguay reached sbo666 the World Cup quarter-finals, it was a tournament defined by slow burners and rigid defences. Eight years later, they're back but among very different company.Just like the 2010 World Cup, the South Americans have topped the hosts' group and sealed progression to the last eight via a 2-1 win in the first knockout round.Ahead of them were a vibrant Ghana side but many of their rivals were built out from the back, just like themselves.Spain went on to win the tournament with a knockout aggregate of 4-0 while the likes of Paraguay, the Netherlands, Germany and even Brazil went far having scored relatively few goals.That set the tone for Uruguay to out graft any team, Oscar Tabarez's 4-4-2 the definitively rigid and one of the best at taking any half chances that came their way, as well as extraditing that a little bit of luck at the right moment.

Fast forward to 2018 and the same system is back with a vengeance, sbo666 knocking out a Portugal side that had somewhat aimed to replicate that clinical mindset, aided by Cristiano Ronaldo just as the world class talents of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani spearhead Uruguay's attack.Now Fernando Santos has exited stage left, it leaves Tabarez's team effectively alone, the last bastion of defence among a swarm of attack minded teams.France are next following their highly entertaining 4-3 win over Argentina, and after that it isn't unrealistic to imagine Belgium, Brazil, England, Croatia or Spain coming up against Uruguay if they manage to go all the way.Exactly how these hugely contrasting styles play off against eachother will be fascinating to watch, and the fact that such is the case is a big victory for the fans, who for long have witnessed rigid grafting as the norm but can now enjoy Uruguay as the exception, rather than the rule. sbo666
