Italy to play friendly against Uruguay in Nice on June 7
ROME (AP) Italy will face Uruguay in a friendly in Nice at Allianz Riviera on June 7, four days before its World Cup qualifier at home against Liechtenstein.
Italy and Uruguay, two of soccer's most-decorated nations, have met 10 times. Italy has beaten Uruguay only twice, while it has lost on four occasions - including a 1-0 defeat in their most recent meeting at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
It has been 27 years since the Italians last beat Uruguay, winning 2-0 in the round of 16 at the 1990 World Cup in Italy.
The Azzurri have played in Nice on one other occasion - a 2-2 draw against Austria in 2008 at the Stade du Rey.
