Torreira gets first Uruguay call

Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira has received his first senior Uruguay call-up from Coach Oscar Washington Tabarez.

He turned 22 last month and has been a sensation at Samp, putting together four goals and an assist in 26 Serie A games this season.

Torreira has been linked with numerous top clubs, including Juventus, Napoli, Inter, Barcelona, Roma and Liverpool.

Despite that form, this is his first senior call-up for Uruguay, who will take part in the China Cup at the end of this month.

The Celeste will face the Czech Republic on March 23 and so far this squad only includes those playing outside of Uruguay.

Uruguay squad: Muslera, Martin Silva, Campana, Godin, Coates, Gimenez, Maxi Pereira, Gaston Silva, Caceres, Ricca, Lemos, Nandez, Torreira, Vecino, Valverde, Bentancur, Carlos Sanchez, Ramirez, De Arrascaeta, Laxalt, Urretaviscaya, Lodeiro, Pereiro, Stuani, Maxi Gomez, Cavani, Luis Suarez
