FWIW, I think Uruguay's main problem is in the midfield. The team doesn't have a crew that can control the game.
As for Donovan, no one has taken his role since he stepped away from the USMNT. Eddie Johnson and Graham Zusi aren't the answers out on the wings.
I agree. Cavani needs service. He has Hamsik at Napoli, there is no Recoba or Francescoli by a long shot on the NT. Most of their MF is defensive minded more so than offense, which is an Uruguay tradition that I would like to see end. Uruguay plays that anti-tiki-taka.
If no one can take his role and he can still perform...he should still do so, I agree with that.
