"Football" Uruguay Sports & Outdoors Tip by pepples46

Uruguay Sports & Outdoors: 6 reviews and 11 photos

Football, or as it is known in America, Soccer, Uruguai has been the Champ two times.
1930 in Montevideo
1950 in Rio, at Maracana
and that was a real shock to the brasilian system. .. David defeted Golias
Uru's know only one sport.....Football, mad, mad Nation
and if they lose to its bigger neighbour, Argentina, then they say: ah well.....Gardel is Urugaian anyway.....and that, drives the Argentines on the brink of insanity!!
