The Uruguay national team will be provided with 2000 pounds of meat in Qatar as a way of getting closer to home at the World Cup.
Uruguayan FA president Ignacio Alonso said: “The national team is being accompanied by the best nourishment. The AUF is a historic ambassador of our country and will take with it another ambassador, which is Uruguayan meat, the best meat in the world.”
Conrado Ferber, president of Uruguay’s National Institute of Meat (INAC) added: “We want to convey the quality of the product, natural and sustainable, and the World Cup is the optimal time to do so.”
Uruguay have been drawn in the same group with Ghana. The Black Stars will play the South American side on December 2.
