MONTEVIDEO, June 9 (Xinhua) -- Uruguay left Monday for Brazil Monday to compete in the 2014 Brazil World Cup.
Uruguay, which is bracketed with Italy, England and Costa Rica in Group D, took a charter flight from the Carrasco International Airport that serves the capital Montevideo, to the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte, capital of Minas Gerais state.
The team will stay in the JN resort hotel and takes training at the nearby city of Sete Lagoas.
Players got the day off Sunday, but had their final training session, behind closed doors, early Monday at their training camp on the outskirts of Montevideo.
Uruguayan forward Luis Suarez returned to practice Saturday, following knee surgery on May 22, but it has yet to be decided whether he will play in the team's inaugural match June 14 against Costa Rica in Fortaleza.
The regional champions, which finished fourth in South Africa in 2010, will compete in their 12th World Cup.
