Sports gambling excitement continues to grow for Uruguay and their online sports gambling chances in the World Cup. Forlan is known as a deadly striker and key asset.

Uruguay may not enter World Cup betting action as a top shelf favorite but they are already being considered by many top soccer handicappers as a potentially strong sleeper and value play for this year.

One of the main challenges for Uruguay to have online sports gambling success is to become more consistent. Forlan had remarked on how the team has struggled in their preparations leading up to the World Cup to maintain consistency.

Uruguay is in what has to be considered one of the toughest groups in all of World Cup betting with host South Africa, Mexico, and France. While that list of teams may be imposing Forlan said nothing should be ruled out as far as Uruguay’s chances to win and move on.

Another key asset for Uruguay, according to Forlan, is coach Oscar Tabarez, who has brought a professional approach to the team. Tabarez also has plenty of sports gambling experience on his World Cup resume as he led Italy in 1990.

Uruguay has the proud World Cup football betting reputation of being a tough and gritty team rather than one that is fancy. It is a reputation that has long been part of the tradition of the team and expected by the fans. The players take pride in being known as one of the tougher clubs in the World Cup and draw strength from that.

Forlan has a sports gambling mark of 24 career goals in 62 caps. He is known not only for his technical mastery of the sport but also as a deadly shot that can finish off the kill.

His current club when not playing for Uruguay is Atletico Madrid. He also has played for Manchester United where he did not meet expectations but did pick up three titles. He has been a key asset in Uruguay’s qualifying matches to make the World Cup betting odds as he had 7 goals in 13 matches.
