Caceres suffers defeat with Uruguay

The Bianconeri defender featured for the full 90 minutes as his Uruguay side suffered a 2-1 loss at the hands of World Champions Spain in the Confederations Cup

Martin Caceres lined up for Uruguay in their first match of the 2013 Confederations Cup, where they were handed a 2-1 defeat by Spain.

The Juventus defender featured for the full 90 minutes in Recife but could not prevent the World Champions from establishing a two-goal lead at the interval thanks to goals from Pedro Rodriguez and Roberto Soldado. The Celeste grabbed a late consolation through Luis Suárez on 88 minutes but could not find the all-important equaliser.

However, the reigning South American champions will remain confident of earning a place in the last four as their remaining two clashes in Group B see them take on Nigeria (Thursday 20 June) and French Polynesia (Sunday 23).
