More than any of the other teams in Pool A, Italy are the opponents that Uruguay have most been looking forward to meeting at RWC 2023. And having witnessed Los Teros’ blinder of a performance in their belated opening match, Italy have grounds for being a touch nervy at the Allianz Riviera in Nice.

Italy vs Uruguay live stream, date, time, channels
Despite qualifying for the tournament as the top-ranked team in the Americas, Uruguay were largely overlooked as fodder for Pool A’s European sides ahead of the World Cup. It’s safe to say that’s no longer the case after Esteban Meneses gave France the fright of their lives last week.
With Felipe Etcheverry pulling the strings and Santiago Arata driving the team on, they were silken, nasty and tireless, and though it must be pointed out that they took the field against a weakened French lineup, there’s now a real sense that Uruguay could ruffle a few more feathers over the next few weeks.
Though Italy kicked off their own campaign with a seven-try, bonus-point beatdown of Namibia, many of those points came either late on or when the Welwitschias were a man down. It’s the reason Kieran Crowley was so critical of the Azzurri display, and he may be glad to have had more than a week to try to iron out any sloppiness ahead of this clash.
