MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay — Forwards Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani will defend the colors of Uruguay in Qatar, coach Diego Alonso confirmed when revealing his World Cup roster on Thursday.

This fourth World Cup for the two players should also be their last. Both athletes are 35 years old.

Other veterans in the roster are goalkeeper Fernando Muslera and two defenders, Diego Godin and Martin Caceres.

Uruguay are in Group H with Portugal, South Korea and Ghana.
