Uruguay star strikers Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez, who were rested from international duty in August, were recalled to the squad to face Indonesia and China in October.

Forlan, voted the best player at the FIFA World Cup™ where Uruguay finished fourth, and Suarez, who scored three goals in South Africa, were named in the 25-man squad after being left out for the game with Angola last month.

Uruguay will face Indonesia in Jakarta on 8 October and China in Wuhan four days later.

Coach Oscar Tabarez will also return to the bench after he missed the 2-0 win over Angola as he discussed a new contract.

Tabarez, who led Uruguay to the FIFA World Cup semi-finals for the first time in 40 years, negotiated a new four-year deal.

Uruguay will also play Republic of Ireland in Dublin on 29 March 2011, as part of their preparations for the Copa America to be hosted by Argentina later in the year.
