What a wonderful send-off Uruguay received from all the Uruguayan fans and the Israeli players and coaching staff. Uruguay beat Israel 4-1 today at the Centenario with goals from Pichichi, Palito and two from El Loco.
We play really well when there is no pressure and after 20 Qualifying games, everyone concerned including the fans deserved a party like atmosphere. It was nice not to suffer as the suffering will start on the 11th of June.
Uruguay was even presented with the National Flag by the President Mujica and Maracana Goal scoring great Ghiggia.
