The commanding midfielder, who recently departed Juventus in favour of a switch to London to join up with Antonio Conte at Spurs (Sky Sports), could not have hoped for a better start to the next chapter in his career.

After being named in Uruguay’s starting lineup to face Venezuela, it took Bentancur just one minute of the game to fire his country into the lead.

Uruguay went on to win the match 4-1 and now sit fourth in the qualifying table.
