Oscar Washington Tabárez remained faithful to what kept him successful in the past few years as Uruguayan national team coach. The majority of his squad comes with experience as they played in the World Cup in 2010 and the Copa América in 2011. This squad has very few exceptions to this list.

Obviously, this list changed a great deal if you look at Tabárez' very first callup list from back in 2006. Diego Forlán, Diego Lugano, Diego Pérez and Andre's Scotti are the four lone survivors of the beginning of "El Maestro's" second stint as national team coach.

José María Giménez, Alejandro Silva and Cristian Stuani joined the squad that will face England, Italy and Costa Rica in Group D. These three players took part in the national team's World Cup qualifying play and were vital in Uruguay overcoming the challenge from Jordan. Their preparation will all take place in Uruguay prior to facing Northern Ireland (5/30) and then Slovenia (6/4) at the Estadio Centenario.

There are three players that will be on an alternate list- Scotti, Fernández and Castro- that will be available but they will not be practicing with the squad leading up to the tournament.

Goalkeepers: Fernando Muslera (Galatasaray- TUR), Rodrigo Muñoz (Libertad-PAR), Martín Silva (Vasco da Gama-PAR)

Midfielders: Egidio Arévalo Ríos (Morelia-MEX), Walter Gargano (Inter-ITA), Diego Pérez (Bologna-ITA), Sebastián Eguren (Palmeiras-BRA), Álvaro González (Lazio-ITA), Alejandro Silva (Lanús-ARG), Álvaro Pereira (São Paulo-BRA), Cristian Rodríguez (Atletico Madrid-ESP), Gastón Ramírez (Southampton-ENG), Nicolás Lodeiro (Botafogo-BRA)
