Uruguay boasts an array of attacking talent, led by their all-time leading scorer Luis Suarez (Atletico Madrid) and Edinson Cavani (Manchester United). Suárez tied Brazil’s Neymar for second in goals scored (8) in CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying. The Uruguayans reached the quarterfinals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, falling to eventual champion France. For this winter’s edition of the tournament in Qatar, La Celeste were drawn into Group H with Portugal, Ghana and Korea Republic.



The USA and Uruguay have an even all-time record (2-2-3) and the match in Kansas City marks the eighth all-time meeting between the nations. An early powerhouse of international football, Uruguay was already four-time Copa America champions by the time of the first meeting with the USA at the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris. Playing just its fourth international match, the USMNT fell 3-0 that day to a Uruguay team that would go on to win the inaugural 1930 FIFA World Cup. Uruguay won its second World Cup title 20 years later in Brazil, defeating the hosts in the championship in a famous match at Maracanã Stadium.


In their most recent meeting, a pair of MLS wingers got on the scoresheet as Jordan Morris (Seattle Sounders) canceled out a strike by Brian Rodriguez (LAFC) in the 1-1 draw on Sept. 10, 2019, in St. Louis.



In the 11 years since the USMNT first stepped on the field at Children’s Mercy Park, there isn’t a venue that has witnessed more success. Overall, the USA has amassed an unbeaten 8-0-1 record with a whopping 20 goals scored and only two against. Most recently, Concacaf selected the stadium to host all three of the USA’s group matches in the 2021 Gold Cup. The USMNT posted three victories, including a pair of 1-0 shutouts against Canada and Haiti en route to capturing its seventh Confederation title.



This is the second of four matches for the USMNT during the ‘double window’ in June. The USA begins the summer schedule on June 1 against Morocco in Cincinnati. Following the match against Uruguay, the U.S. will open its Concacaf Nations League title defense on June 10 against Grenada in Austin, Texas. Four days later, the USA travels to face El Salvador. The United States captured the inaugural CNL championship last summer in a thrilling 3-2 defeat of Mexico in extra time.
