Over the years there have been a lot of football still spoken of with admiration. Football team in Uruguay in the 20’s is such a football team. She not only won the first ever world champion in 1930. But the gold medal in the Olympics in 1924 and 1928. At the time, the most valuable prize of international football.
Copa America in 1922 and 1923
Uruguay had to play a match at the Copa America in 1922. They had to Paraguay to a point enough to be American champion. The dubious judgment calls Paraguay won 1-0. There was a play-off needed to determine who would win the tournament. Uruguay suspect foul play from home and competitor for the title of Brazil.Uruguay declined to play the decisive matches against Brazil and Paraguay and withdrew. Brazil finally won at home this dubious title, which perhaps belonged to Uruguay. Uruguay had a really good team with the striker Angel Romano, who between 1911 and 1927 for 16 years would be international. Until the 80’s, he was with 69 international caps record of Uruguay.
At the Copa America 1923 Uruguay home advantage. In the first game debut at right-back José Nasazzi and striker Pedro Petrone. Both rookies immediately left a lasting impression; Nasazzi was voted player of the tournament, was Petrone shared top scorer. Other key players were right in Hector Scarone, he was for many years with 31 goals in 51 internationals scorer Uruguay and links within Pedro Cea. The most notable and best players in the team, José Leandro Andrade. This rechtshalf blessed with sublime technique and legs seemed to have elastic, smooth when he moved across the field. The South American Championship 1923 Uruguay with so?? powerful team simply can not escape. And it did not happen, Uruguay won all the matches and the first international prize was inside. In addition, the players were able to immediately prepare for the next price. Copa America was also the qualifying tournament for the 1924 Olympics in Paris, where champions Uruguay had now therefore automatically qualified.
At the time, the Olympic Games status of a World Cup. All the major football countries were represented, only the British acted amateur team. Prof Athletes After all, were not welcome at Olympics. During the tournament was otherwise openly doubted the amateur status of South Americans; because they seemed so much longer than the European Footballer. Favorite Uruguay took all the top players to participate; Romano, Cea, Petrone, Scarone and Andrade Nasazzi, who already had become the leader after more than six years. The long boat trip to France had little impact on the game; Yugoslavia lost in the first match 7-0. The next victim was named the US homeland and France. Uruguay had impressively reached the semifinals.
What particularly struck by Uruguay was the mode. Where most European countries played according to the English “kick-and-rush” they played through short combinations. In addition, the South Americans were much more athletic and stronger built. They won so almost every personal duel. It was best illustrated by midfielder Andrade, the athlete par excellence of his team. But Andrade bar primarily sensation by his dark skin. The Europeans had never seen a dark footballer, let alone someone from the class Andrade. In 1950, nephew of Andrade; Victor Rodriguez Andrade will be world champion as a left midfielder, but he was far from the class of his uncle from the 20th century which is considered the best player in the world in the 20’s.
The Netherlands was the opponent in the semifinals. Prior Netherlands seemed hopeless, but encouraged by a 1-0 lead by Arrow Orange kept long. Hector Scarone led to the equalizer part because of Dutch left afbluffen of the hard game Uruguay. When Cea had used an incorrect penalty was the Dutch resistance is broken. In the final, Uruguay false Switzerland easily with 3-0. Pedro Petrone was the top scorer with eight goals in the tournament.
Copa America in 1924, 1926 and 1927
In October 1924 Petrone was again the top scorer in the tournament, this time from the Copa America. He was also the best player in the tournament that Uruguay would win at home. Uruguay was without doubt the best team in the world. Because of his bright blue shirt over black football pants were these usurpers ?? Sky Blue ?? mentioned.Their football sometimes seemed not of this earth.
Because of problems with the Uruguayan Football Association they participated in the South American championship in 1925. This could be their biggest rival Argentina after champion in both 1923 and in 1924 finished second behind Uruguay. During the Copa America 1926 in Argentina and Uruguay, Chile once competed for the title.Also attracted to a 2-0 victory over the Argentines ?? Sky Blue ?? the longest straw. Jose Leandro Andrade was named best player of the tournament. At the Copa America 1927 Uruguay had to settle for second place; behind Argentina of course.
The last two South American champions both represented at the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam, and both countries benefited for the gold medal. True to expectation both football superpowers reached the final. Olympic champion Uruguay struggled with native Netherlands, Germany and Italy. Argentina played very convincing and made the final 25 times. They were therefore at the beginning of the last slight favorite for the Olympic title. In the final, kept current American champion and the current Olympic champion with 1-1 neatly balanced. This game was the last game played. Argentina, where only one player had to replace the Uruguayan coach fit as many as 5 to change the replay. The fresher the Uruguayan teams eventually won 103. The confrontation between the two rivals 2-1 and extended their Olympic title. This Olympic title had less status than four years earlier. Since only existed in the British Isles professional football officially so they were excluded for the Olympics. In 1928, in Czechoslovakia, Austria and Hungary entered professional football, so that these countries were not present at the Olympic Games.
High time for a World Cup for amateurs and professionals! Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden wanted to organize the first World Cup, but FIFA gave the tournament to Uruguay, because they were Olympic champion of all because they are celebrating 100 years of independence in 1930. Most European teams made the long boat trip and promised not to sit down. Previously, all the British teams with their favorite professional players, but the British football associations had been intensified by the conflict since 1928 from FIFA. Eventually four European countries crossed the sea, and along with the two North American countries and seven South American teams competed for the first world. The Olympic finalists in 1928, Uruguay and Argentina were favorites.
Homeland Uruguay was incidentally the last Copa America in 1929 in Buenos Aires disappointingly third. Argentina had used home advantage and began the World Cup as the reigning South American champions. Now Uruguay had home advantage and succeeded in every game supported by at least 70 000 spectators in the purpose-built Estadio Centario ?? ?? Or ?? Centennial ?? because of 100 years of independence in Uruguay. Expectations loosened and Uruguay and Argentina faced each other for a grand prize. Argentina dominated the first half and led 2-1 midway through the contest. The lead was deserved for 2-1 just before the half of the Argentine top scorer in the tournament Stabile was actually offside. After peace was a completely different Uruguay. 1-2 disadvantage turned into a 4-2 victory and captain José Nasazzi was the first player who got their hands on the World Cup.
It proved to be the last act of tyrants because Uruguay refused to defend his world title in 1934, as they took revenge of the European countries that stayed away in 1930 at the World Championships in Montevideo. Only in 1935, after six years again organized a Copa America, but then there were many former top players from Uruguay already stopped playing football. So they had for their world ?? Sky Blue ?? A contained 5 years friendlies often against Argentina. The Uruguayan Dream Team???? Therefore, ceased to exist on the historic July 30, 1930 in Montevideo when the world was caught. With three South American titles, two Olympic gold medals and was a World ?? Sky Blue ?? between 1923 and 1930 by far the best team in the world!
