With the international break winding down before Serie A recommences on Saturday, two sides with Bianconeri links were both in action yesterday.
Martin Caceres played the full 90 minutes as Uruguay edged out South Korea 1-0 in a friendly in Goyang.
In a highly-entertaining encounter with chances for both teams, Jose Gimenez’s header midway through the second-half ensured La Celeste end this international break with two solid victories.
Elsewhere, Stephan Lichtsteiner’s Switzerland began their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign with a 2-0 defeat to England. The 30-year-old defender was on the pitch for the entire contest as two second-half goals from Three Lions forward Danny Welbeck settled proceedings in Basel.
In tonight’s solitary match involving Juventus players, Italy face Norway in Oslo at 20.45 CET in a Euro 2016 qualifier.
Giorgio Chiellini and Claudio Marchisio, who have both returned to Vinovo in the last few days, will not play due to injury and suspension respectively whilst Gigi Buffon, Leonardi Bonucci, Angelo Ogbonna and Sebastian Giovinco are all at Antonio Conte’s disposal for this evening’s game.
