2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™

14 June - 15 July

The athletic Montevideo native was first called up by Oscar Tabarez in March 2016, although he did not make his Uruguay debut until October of that year. Since then, he has been frequently included in national squads, but he was only used twice during the Russia 2018 qualifying campaign, both times as a substitute. However, following Laxalt’s solid performances at left-back at the China Cup in March, Tabarez decided to bring him to Russia to provide cover in that key position.
