France vs Uruguay Time and Live Score: FIFA World Cup 2010

Two times world champion Uruguay would take on 1998 winner France in their first match of World Cup Football 2010 at the Cape Town Stadium in Cape Town on 11 June. France is worried about their shaky defense, while Uruguay’s hopes are carried by two in-form strikers Diego Forlán and Luis Suárez.


The match kicks off at 18:30 GMT and 20:30 local time. In Uruguay, the match starts at 15:30, while in France the match begins at 20:30 CEST (Central European Summer Time).

Live Score

Live score of the match will be available in the following website address:

France defense looked pretty ordinary in their recent warm up matches with Gallas and Abidal were struggling for form. France was suffered a humiliating 1-0 defeat at the hands of China last week. So, Captain Patrice Evra would have to pull the string in defense for France. On the other hand, Uruguay’s Forlán and Suárez have been in excellent form recently for their clubs as well as for their country.

So, the fixture seems to be a clash between Uruguay attack and France defense. However, one can not rule out France’s attacking line up. They have some experienced top class players in Nicolas Anelka and Franck Ribéry who could orchestrate lethal attack for the opposition. However, star striker Thierry Henry would not start against Uruguay.

From Group A, France is the ultimate favorite to reach the next round, but given the threats posed by Uruguay and Mexico, French players can not just get relaxed. In fact, they have the experience of getting out of the first round in 2002.

France XI

Hugo Lloris, Patrice Evra, William Gallas, Bacary Sagna, Eric Abidal, Jérémy Toulalan, Yoann Gourcuff, Florent Malouda, Sidney Govou, Franck Ribery and Nicolas Anelka

Uruguay XI

Néstor Muslera, Diego Lugano, Mauricio Victorino, Diego Godin, Diego Pérez, Maximiliano Pereira, Egidio Arévalo, Alvaro Pereira, Luiz Suarez, Ignacio Gonzalez, Diego Forlan
