Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo has been called up to the Uruguay squad for March games against Chile and Ecuador.

The 20-year-old has made only one appearance for Barca this season, as a substitute against Sevilla when he was also sent off, but he has trained regularly with the first team.

He’s now part of Oscar Tabarez’s squad and will be hoping he can make his debut for the senior side.

Jean-Clair Todibo’s January departure has pushed Araujo up the pecking order at Barcelona, and he’ll be hoping for more first-team minutes before the end of the season.
