Sports Team
    (May 16, 1901- )
    Born in Uruguay

    Governed by the Uruguayan Football Association
    World Cup champions (1930,1950)

    Notable players include Jose Andrade, Pedro Cea, Juan Alberto Schiaffino, Alcides Ghiggia, Diego Forlan, Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani
    They're often seen as a blast from the past that faded over time.
    They have the highest World Cup rate of dismissals per game.
    One team member holds the World Cup record for fastest red-card: 56 seconds during a 1986 match.
    They've often failed to qualify for the World Cup or take the 'long route' to do so in recent decades.
    They're the only national team from a country of less than 10 million people to win the FIFA World Cup.
    Brazil was expected to win the 1950 World Cup as hosts but Uruguay surprised everyone with a 2-1 win in the deciding game.
    They've made a comeback in recent years with fourth at the 2010 World Cup, fourth at the 2013 Confederations Cup and a win at the 2011 Copa America.
    They've won Uruguay's only Olympic gold medals.
    They will always have a liking as the first ever World Cup winners.
