Italy vs Uruguay - FIFA World Cup 2014 Preview

Master-blaster of the final Showdown of Group Stages

A night, a match which I was personally eagerly waiting for and here it comes. The thriller, nail-biting and sensational match of the group stages. A match that decides the second team to proceed to the next round.Uruguay's Luis Suarez with his current form is a major threat for his opponent while on other hand Balotelli the striking power of Italians so it will be a treat to watch.

Group A: Italy vs. Uruguay
Venue: Estadio das Dunas, Natal, Brazil
Kick-off: June 24 | 12 pm ET

Uruguay in lieu to the header from his Club Colleague(Gerrard) manages to steal golden points from England with 2-1 victory and both were scored by Suarez. on the other hand Italy defeated England with 2-1 and got defeat from Costa Rica. 

I remember the Buffon statement before WC'14
Opponents have to sweat really hard to cross Italy's Defense
