Day 3 of the 2019 Copa America features the debut of Barcelona striker Luis Suárez, who plays the opening match of Group C against Ecuador in Belo Horizonte. Suárez recovered from knee surgery in time to start the first game, and El Pistolero is ready to lead the line for what is on paper the best team in the tournament.

It’s not just Suárez and Edinson Cavani up front: it’s Rodrigo Bentancur, Lucas Torreira and Giorgian De Arrascaeta in midfield, and it’s the formidable backline of José María Giménez and Diego Godín. Uruguay are talented in every area of the team, they’re very well coached, and their best players are healthy and hungry for the nation’s first title since 2011.

The opening game offers a tough challenge: Ecuador are a really solid defensive team and have quick, talented players up front, so their counter attack can cause problems to anyone. But if Uruguay show their talent and Suárez is inspired, this could be the start of a magical run for the Celeste.
