[OLYMPICS COUNTDOWN] Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and Napoli's Edinson Cavani are among the 18 players named to Uruguay's Olympic squad, which is competing in the Olympic competition for the first time since winning a second consecutive gold medal in 1928.

Suarez and Cavani, both 25, played on Uruguay's 2010 World Cup team that finished fourth in South Africa. Cavani is one of five Italian-based players in the Uruguay squad.

Egidio Arevalo Rios of Mexican club Tijuana is the other over-age player in the under-23 competition for Uruguay, which will play in Group A with host Great Britain, Senegal and the United Arab Emirates.

Brazil is the other South American representative. Argentina, the gold-medalist in 2004 and 2008, did not qualify for the 2012 competition.

South America uses its qualifying tournament for the Under-20 World Cup to determine its Olympic representatives.

Uruguay Roster:
Goalkeepers: Martin Campana (Cerro Largo), Leandro Gelpi (Penarol).
Defenders: Sebastian Coates (Liverpool), Diego Polenta (Genoa/ITA), Ramon Arias (Defensor Sporting), Alexis Rolin (Nacional), Emiliano Albin (Penarol), Matias Aguirregaray (Palermo/ITA).
Midfielders: Egidio Arevalo Rios (Tijuana/MEX), Maximiliano Calzada (Nacional), Diego Rodriguez (Defensor Sporting), Gaston Ramirez (Bologna/ITA), Nicolas Lodeiro (Ajax/NED), Jonathan Urretaviscaya (Vitoria Guimaraes/POR).
Forwards: Luis Suarez (Liverpool/ENG), Edinson Cavani (Napoli/ITA), Abel Hernandez (Palermo/ITA), Tabare Viudez (Nacional).
