Uruguay Game Will ‘Strengthen the Group’ Ahead of Copa América, Says Filipe Luis
Brazil left-back Filipe Luis says Friday’s friendly with Uruguay at Emirates Stadium is the perfect preparation for the Copa América in June.
Brazil host the tournament and Uruguay will be among the favourites with the hosts. Filipe Luis says the game is ideal preparation.
“Every South American team has a different way of playing. Uruguay have a very different style to Argentina and Ecuador,” he told CBF TV.
“It is good to have these different situations on the pitch and to adapt to them in the best possible way as a group.
“Certainly Uruguay are a big rival, a difficult opponent and aside from the result, the game will help to strengthen the group for the Copa América.”
