Information on Uruguay National Football Team World Cup tickets

Uruguay is one of the big three in South American football and the first title holder in the World Cup history. They gained higher reputation back then in the 1930s and 1950s compared to now. Nevertheless, Uruguay are still respectable teams although their campaign has not always as constant as their neighbours and rivals, Argentina and Brasil.

Overall Campaign

Uruguay have made 13 appearances in total with the various results from the world champions and failing at the group stage. They have clinched the titles twice, in the first edition in 1930 and in 1950. In 1930, Pedro Cea and Co trashed Argentina 4-2 in the final while in 1950, their next victim was Brasil, the host of the tournament. In a match which was notorious for the term ‘Maracanzo’ among Brasilians, they shockingly crushed Brasil 2-1 in the summit. Their next best performances were in 1954, 1970 and 2010 when they all finished on the fourth place. In Switzerland 1954, Juan Lopez’s men were smashed 2-4 by Hungary at the semifinal and 1-3 by Austria in the third place play-off. Next, in Mexico 1970, they were defeated 1-3 by Brasil, the eventual champions, in the last four and lost 0-1 to Germany. Last but not least, in South Africa 2010, Luis Suarez were beaten 2-3 by Netherlands in the semi final and by Germany in the third place play-off.

Meanwhile, in the remaining campaigns, Uruguay reached the last eight twice, in 1966 and 2018, and round of 16 three times in 1986, 1990 and 2014. Their worst results were in 1962, 1974 and 2002 when they could not even get past the preliminary round.

Iconic Moments

Uruguay’s most unforgettable moments took places in 1930, 1950 and 2010. The first two ones were definitely the final match. In 1930 final, in front of 93,000 people, Uruguay clinched their first title in an entertaining match against Argentina. Dorado took the lead, but Albiceleste responded twice through Peucelle and Guillermo Stabile before the interval. The second half simply belonged to the home side, Pedro Cea equalised while Iriarte and Castro sealed their victory. In 1950 final, it was quite dramatic. They made a comeback after conceding through Friaca. Juan Schiaffino’s and Alcides Ghiggia’s goal overturned the score sheet and broke Selecao’s fans’ heart. Last but not least, it was the even more dramatic quarter final in 2010. Oscar Tabarez’s side faced off Ghana which already took the lead through Sulley Muntari’s goal. After the interval, Diego Forlan’s strike responded. Then, the incident took place during the extra time when Luis Suarez intentionally touched the ball while there was a rumble in the box to avoid conceding. The penalty was obviously given to Ghana. Yet, the main forward Asamoah Gyan wasted the opportunity as the ball flew high. The table was turning on penalties, as Uruguay advanced to their first semi final in 30 years.

Their most humiliating moment was probably in 1986 edition, when they slumped to a 1-6 defeat against the debutante Denmark.

Top Figures

Uruguay stars in 1930 and 1950 World Cup such as Pedro Cea, Juan Schiaffino, Alcides Ghiggia plus the head coach Juan Lopez deserve highest recognition for winning the titles followed by Luis Suarez, Diego Forlan, Edison Cavani, Fernando Muslera, Diego Godin and the maestro Oscar Tabarez for leading the team to the last semi final.
