Uruguay v Argentina live stream, Friday 12 November, 11pm GMT

Argentina will take another step towards the 2022 World Cup if they beat neighbours Uruguay on Friday.

The Albiceleste crashed out of the last World Cup in the round of 16 and there were few positives to take from their performances in Russia. Lionel Scaloni took charge after the tournament and was only expected to serve as interim manager, but he remains in the position three years on.

Scaloni has gradually made Argentina a force to be reckoned with once more. After losing to eventual winners Brazil in the semi-finals of the 2019 Copa America, Argentina triumphed at last summer’s edition of the competition. Remarkably, it was their first trophy at senior level since 1993 and that success has raised expectations ahead of Qatar 2022.

Nine points clear of fifth place and with a game in hand on the teams below them, Argentina are sitting comfortably in the race for South America’s four automatic qualification spots.

Uruguay, by contrast, have work to do. They are currently outside the top four on goal difference and collected only one point from a possible nine in the October internationals. There are suggestions that the long-serving Oscar Tabarez, who began his second spell in charge of Uruguay in 2006 could be sacked if results do not go well in the coming days.

Lionel Messi has been included in the Argentina squad despite fitness doubts, a decision which PSG sporting director Leonardo was not best pleased with. Lucas Alario, Juan Foyth, Facundo Medina and Esteban Andrada have not been called up this month after featuring in October.

Uruguay’s travelling party includes all-time top scorer Luis Suarez, but Edinson Cavani has been left out due to medical reasons. Sebastian Caceres, Matias Vina, Federico Valverde, Nicolas De La Cruz, Giorgian De Arrascaeta and Maximiliano Gomez are all missing with injuries.

Kick-off is at 11pm GMT on Friday, 12 November, and UK viewers can watch it on Premier Sports. See below for international broadcast options.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch World Cup qualifiers from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch Steve Bruce’s extra-red face without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
