Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez has signed a new four-year contract to remain in charge of the national side.
The Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) announced the contract extension on Friday.
The 71-year-old is in his second spell in charge of his country and has led the team to four World Cups, including a fourth-place finish at the 2010 finals in South Africa.
Tabarez also guided Uruguay to a Copa America triumph in 2011.
He will keep assistants Celso Otero, Mario Rebollo, and Jose Herrera, who have worked with him since 2006.
Tabarez, who cannot walk unaided because of neuropathy, first took charge of Uruguay from 1988-90 before returning in 2006.
Uruguay were eliminated in the quarter-finals by eventual winners France at this summer's World Cup in Russia.
