The Uruguay National Team, in search of signals from Gallardo’s side to advance in the negotiation
“We will have to have signs that the ideas we have are possible. We all know that the next qualifying date is January 28, so there is time, but without a doubt that to start designing the process and putting our goal in these last four games, fundamental for Qatar, we have to have certainty to continue ahead. We do not have a fixed term (to negotiate) ”, commented Casales.
