Uruguay National Football Team History
In 1924, Uruguay showed their worth when they travelled to Paris to participate in the Olympic Games. The team shocked and ultimately defeated much of the competition, employing a truly different style of football compared to the muscular form of run-and-gun football played by many European teams. The style they employed involved lots of short passes, inventive ball handling and an inventive technicality that has rocketed and turned football into the beautiful sport it is today! The legendary team is also famous for beating Brazil in Brazil in 1950 in a match now known as El Maracanazo, when their victory came as a massive upset, as everyone involved had considered the match between Brazil and Uruguay as a simple formality to Brazil’s World Cup victory!
