Marcelo Bielsa is the protagonist in Uruguay for another of his madness. Looking ahead to the friendly that the Uruguayan team will have against Costa Rica this Friday, the Argentine coach surprised with a name on the roster that only considers local players.

This is Walter Domínguez, a striker for Juventud de Soriano, a squad that belongs to the Interior Football Organization (OFI), which is why it is amateur in nature according to the Uruguayan football regulations.

The decision obviously generated an impact in the South American country, who were surprised by the determination of Loco, who in any case will not be on the bench this Friday, since that role will be assumed by Diego “Ruso” Pérez, former Monaco midfielder and coach. of the U-20 of Uruguay.

But the truth is that despite the astonishment, Domínguez’s presence in this local team that the Rosario put together is now a reality. The striker, who is now known as El Goleador del Pueblo, carried out his first training sessions with the national team this Monday.

It was precisely for that reason that Luis Suárez, Uruguay’s historic scorer, dedicated heartfelt words to the player. “Great Walter Domínguez,” he wrote when responding to a post from his Instagram account. “Congratulations and enjoy this beautiful opportunity! Every effort has its reward, up and success“added the Inter Miami forward, who since Bielsa’s arrival has seen his participation in the national team reduced.

But the former Barcelona and Liverpool forward was not the only one who congratulated the amateur footballer on this new experience. Maxi Araújo wrote: “How great Walter. The best and enjoy a lot!!”and Joaquín Piquerez noted: “Great Walter, congratulations and enjoy.”

The friendly match between Uruguay and Costa Rica will take place this Friday (10:00 p.m. in Chile) at the National Stadium of the Central American country. The event will also serve as the last opportunity for the Uruguayan players to convince Bielsa for the Copa América in the United States.
