Player profile

The tall and quick midfielder is unlikely to start but has emerged as a favourite of coach Oscar Tabarez and is a useful option from the bench. He made his Uruguay debut in a 2009 qualifier against Chile and featured in both play-off matches against Costa Rica.

Fernandez currently plays for Universidad de Chile, his third club in 12 months. He reached last year's Libertadores Cup semi-finals with Nacional, followed by a brief spell in Portugal with Victoria Setubal.

He moved to Chile in January in time for the 2010 season. He began his career with Montevideo Wanderers and has also played in Mexico with Puebla.
