Uruguay will debut in the Glass of the World on 24 November in front of South Korea. For then, Ronald Araújo trusts to have been able to recover of his injury in the aductor long of the right thigh that forced him to operate this Wednesday in Finland. The central received the good news on the successful of the surgical intervention by part of the doctor Lasse Lempainen and already thinks in working to tope for, at least, colarse in the list of 26 summoned by the technical Diego Alonso.

In other opportunities, the one of Rivera has attained to recover of his physical problems before the planned. Although the injuries have attacked him in the last year and half with frequency, the player of 23 years has showed capacity for sanar fast and, thanks to his discipline in the trainings, recortar terms to return to the field. The doctor Lempainen will accompany him during the next two months in all the process post operatorio, with the responsibility to protect the physicist of the central.

Araújo Decided to operate to avoid problems on a long-term basis derived of a conservative treatment that, although they would allow him go back to play a lot before, could lastrar new injuries in the thigh during or after the World-wide. The 'charrúa' took the decision after gathering with the doctors of the Barça and consult with his surroundings. Thus, during the recovery, the defender will take the things with great caution, since force to recover before the expected (three months) also has his risk.

What himself is sure is that the Uruguayan is strong fisicamente. In January suffered a fracture in the second and third metacarpial of the right hand. It expected that it was until three weeks of drop, but attained to go back in seven days. Same term carried him recover of his problems in the right calf in February, last injury suffered until the avulsión in the aductores that carried him this week to the operating theatre.

To two months of the World-wide, Araújo has clear his priorities

"Here it does not treat to choose one or another, treats of the health and to go back to 100% the before possible", said the defender before travelling to Finland to operate . Ronald did not want to run risks now and neither will do it in November. If it is not to tope physically, will not travel to Catar. However, this does not want to say that it will not try to emulate to Luis Suárez, the one who in 2014 attained to arrive to the World-wide of Brazil with Uruguay in spite of operating only three weeks before the beginning of the tournament.

With Araújo, the problem is that, clinically, his problem in the right thigh would carry between three and four months of recovery to attain that the aductores recover totally. Even, still prpers having bet by the conservative treatment, his presence in Catar was engaged, as the avulsión generates a break of the muscular fabric. Therefore, operate was the most hit decision, but the time runs against for the defender and his dream to play his first World-wide.
