On the last day of the transfer window, Atletico Madrid signed Arsenal midfielder Torreira on loan, so the team has three Uruguayan internationals. Uruguayan national team coach Tavares said at the press conference that this is a good thing.
The Uruguay national team is preparing for the World Cup qualifiers. Suarez and Torreira are both selected in this squad, while Jimenez is absent because of the new crown.
Speaking of Suarez and Torreira joining Atletico, Tavares said: "This is important. It is a good thing for the national team for the three internationals to play in the same club."
In addition, Tavares also talked about Suarez’s double brace and said: “His performance surpassed the expectations of a player in his debut.”
