1930 FIFA World Cup Final


1930 FIFA World Cup Final

The 1930 FIFA World Cup final was thus contested between the finalists from the 1928 Olympics, Uruguay and Argentina.

The final was played at the Estadio Centenario on July 30. The stadium gates were opened at eight o'clock, six hours before kick-off, and at noon the ground was full, officially holding 93,000 people.PDFlink| [http://www.fifa.com/infoplus/IP-201_02E_WC-origin.pdf FIFA World Cup Origin] |53.6 KiB , FIFA Media Release. Retrieved on May 20, 2007.] A disagreement overshadowed the build-up to the match as the teams disagreed on who should provide the match ball, forcing FIFA to intervene and decree that the Argentine team would provide the ball for the first half and the Uruguayans would provide their own for the second. The game ended 4-2 to Uruguay (who had trailed 2-1 at half time) who added the title World Cup winners to the mantle of Olympic Champions, as Jules Rimet presented the World Cup Trophy, which was later named for him. The following day was declared a national holiday in Uruguay; in the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires a mob threw stones at the Uruguayan consulate. [Glanville, p21]

Only one player from that final, Francisco Varallo (who played as a striker for Argentina), is still alive as of 2007. [ [http://www.fifa.com/en/news/feature/0,1451,110384,00.html?articleid=110384 Francisco Varallo, the sole survivor of a famous final] FIFA.com]
