Arevalo: Everyone wanted Uruguay out of the World Cup

The midfielder has stressed his belief that his nation were the victims of a vendetta against them in the wake of their 2-0 loss to Colombia at the Maracana


Uruguay midfielder Arevalo Rios believes that “everyone” wanted his nation out of the World Cup, following their 2-0 round of 16 loss to Uruguay at the Maracana.

A goal in either half sealed their fate, but Rios reckons that his side have been victimised from all quarters throughout the event.
