Uruguay captain admits unfortunate truth if they don't beat Namibia
“Uruguay has only won three games in all the history of the Rugby World Cup, and this adds perhaps some pressure on our side,” Vilaseca said.
“We must accept this as there are a lot of people talking about the good performances we are having at this World Cup.
“We have received very nice messages, too, but the truth is that if we do not win against Namibia we wouldn’t confirm this great progress.”
While Uruguay have showed some real quality at times, Namibia have found it tough going, conceding 219 points in losing to Italy, New Zealand and France.
It is the final fixture of Namibia’s World Cup campaign, and head coach Allister Coetzee said: “It is tough to play four matches in 18 days for any tier two country.
“When you don’t have a lot of depth in your squad it is really a challenge, but I must say our players have really stepped up.
“I call them warriors because it is really not easy when you have teams getting 12 days, 13 days, two weeks off until the next game.
“This is our fourth game, our final game, playing against a quality Uruguay side, and it will only be their third game.”
