Uruguay's record goal-scorer Diego Forlan was missing from coach Oscar Tabarez's 25-man squad for the World Cup qualifier against Chile on November 11 which was named yesterday.

The Inter Milan striker, who passed Hector Scarone's national record of 31 goals in the 1-1 draw against Paraguay three weeks ago, has been sidelined with a thigh injury.
