Uruguay will meet Japan and South Korea in friendlies next month as part of the team’s preparations for FIFA 2026 World Cup qualifiers.
The Celeste will face Japan in Tokyo on March 24 and South Korea in Seoul four days later, the Uruguayan Football Association said in a statement.
Uruguay are yet to replace former head coach Diego Alonso, who departed in December after the team’s failure to progress beyond the group stage of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
South American and Asian zone qualifying tournaments for the next World Cup are scheduled to begin later this year.
The 2026 World Cup will be played in the United States, Canada and Mexico, and will feature 48 teams for the first time, expanded from 32.
