Uruguay goalkeeper Sergio Rochette revealed on Sunday that the goalkeeper’s task is getting more difficult in the FIFA World Cup with the increase in the speed of the balls, noting that the design used in Qatar is no exception.

Rochette told reporters ahead of his team’s World Cup opening match against South Korea on Thursday: “Year after year, the task of the strikers is getting easier and things are getting more difficult for us.”

And the International Federation (FIFA) said that the ball in the 2022 finals is faster than any balls in any other version of the World Cup.

“It’s a very fast ball,” said Rochette. We are in the process of coping.

Rochet, 29, has become coach Diego Alonso’s first choice goalkeeper at the expense of veteran Fernando Muslera, 36, who participated in three World Cups, but will likely be a substitute in Qatar.

Rochette spoke to reporters after a training session that ended with joking and playing.

“We have a very good group,” he said. There is no doubt about their level. A positive atmosphere can play a role. But when it’s time to work, our focus is entirely on our mission.
