Uruguay face the Netherlands in the World Cup semi-final in Cape Town on Tuesday.
Sebastian Abreu said: “Tabarez has been talking to us about Robben and how to stop a player like him.
“But it’s always different when you are on the field.
“So we know how to do it but whether the actual execution actually comes off is another thing.”
“Tabarez has asked us to concentrate fully, not just in the matches, but also in training,” added Abreu. “He is very satisfied with our work.
“Looking at the Dutch, we have watched a lot of videos on their team because we don’t know too much about them.
“The Netherlands and Uruguay play very similar football but they have very good potential in their attack, with very clever players like [Wesley] Sneijder and Robben.”
