And there are sure to have been plenty of fun tales exchanged, with the trio each enjoying fine playing careers.

Indeed, Forlan and Keane know each other well after working together for Manchester United.

But while the Irishman had a fantastic Old Trafford career, Forlan’s was less successful.

The striker only scored 17 goals in 98 games under Sir Alex Ferguson.

And he was cut loose after just three seasons as he failed to adapt to English football.

Forlan did manage to win a Premier League title and FA Cup alongside former captain Keane.

And he quickly rebuilt his career by getting amongst the goals at Villarreal and Atletico Madrid.

Uruguay are now hoping he can prove to be their talisman as they look to negotiate a tricky group that also includes Portugal and Ghana.

But they must first get past Son Heung-Min’s South Korea tomorrow.

Since retiring from professional football in 2019, Forlan has turned his hand to management.

He took charge of Penarol in his homeland a year later, but was sacked after just 11 matches.
