SAINTS midfielder Gaston Ramirez has been named in Uruguay's World Cup finals squad.

Ramirez, Saints' record signing when he arrived in the summer of 2012 for £12m, started just three Premier League games in the season just finished.

Striker Luis Suarez is one of two Liverpool players in Oscar Tabarez's squad along with defender Sebastian Coates, who has been on loan at first club Nacional since January.

The 23-year-old missed Uruguay's last four qualifiers for the finals in Brazil and their play-off win over Jordan in November after suffering a knee ligament injury in August.

West Brom defender Diego Lugano is the fourth English-based player in the squad.
