The Uruguayan delegation arrived 19:35 (Brasília time) yesterday at Confins airport and arrived at Hotel Caesar Business at 20:57, was greeted by a single supporter, who lives in Belo Horizonte, the Uruguayan Laura Alcoba. She awaited Celeste along with her Brazilian son, Carlos Henrique, 9, with flag in hand. Having been in Brazil for 16 years, it was the first time she saw her native country’s team since leaving Uruguay. "I regret not having got a ticket to watch the game. "I root for Uruguay," said Carlos Henrique cheerfully. At least, she managed to get an autograph of the first striker Forlan, and the other team members.

The main concern of the Uruguayan delegation is safety because of the protests against the investment in the Confederations Cup, and the World Cup in 2014.

The defender Andres Scotti confirmed FIFA's guidelines are to avoid leaving the hotel where they are staying at. The recommendation is that the group just leaves for the recognition of the field at Mineirão, where they will face Brazil tomorrow at 16:00 (Brasília time). "I think we will have problems. In any case, we’ll be spending the whole time in the hotel, "said the player, who supports the right to protest: "I will not say much about it, because it’s Brazilian people’s issue, but I understand their right to express themselves, just hope that everything goes smoothly."

Before leaving for Belo Horizonte, the players who didn't face Tahiti sunbathed and trained for nearly an hour at Nautica training center. They worked on their kicks and played a friendly game. The ones who had played against Tahiti had some physical exercises in a gym in Recife.

Over than 50 kicks, only 10 were well done. Cavani scored three times, Forlán and Luis Suárez scored two goals each.

Time to say good-bye despite of the errors and the strong heat in the city, the players seemed to have had fun with the activity. Suárez was the most excited. When he did well, he encouraged his peers. After the activities the players returned to the hotel and boarded to Belo Horizonte in the end of the day. Before departing, they received warm goodbye of Uruguayan and Brazilian fans.
