One thought on “Uruguay

  1. Just look at them, they were easily one of the most unattractive teams I’ve ever seen, bearing more resemblance to a police wanted noiticeboard than a football team, half of them could pass as members of the Uruguayan Mafia, if there is such a thing. Pele mentioned in his biography how Fontes trod on his ankle which had it been unsupported would have probably broken it. All they had to their credit was a rock solid, oak tree like defence, but with no real cutting edge in attack their potential was sorely limited.
