Uruguay in the 2002 World Cup

Asociación Uruguaya de Fútbol.
Group A

Uruguay vs Denmark

Dario Silva and Alvaro Recoba caused Denmark most of the early problems; even though they lost in Ulsan.

France vs Uruguay

Credit to France, the World Champions pushed forward to try and score whenever they could: Micoud, Wiltord, and Trezeguet all having half-chances in the area. The South Americans played more conservatively, relying on releasing Recoba, when the French looked stretched.

Senegal vs Uruguay

Even though they scored three goals against Senegal, it was not enough to bring Uruguay out of the group.

Knockout Stage

Uruguay failed to qualify for the Second Round.
