Ghiggia predicted the 5-0 scoreline between Uruguay and Jordan and now more than ever there is reason to believe.

Here are five reasons in pictures:

Mono Periera scored the first goal against Jordan

Cristian Stuani scored the second against Jordan

I urge all the Jordanian players, coaching staff, fans and journalists to come to Montevideo to celebrate with Uruguay. It’s going to be an experience you will never forget. Everyone will be partying like it’s 1950 again. You will be playing in the stadium where the first World Cup was held and playing in the country where the first World Cup was won by Uruguay.

Don’t worry about the result as it really doesn’t mean much considering all the world’s troubles. Football for Uruguay is something more than a game and helps people forget all the daily issues that they need to deal with, it’s an escape from reality and the passion will be there.

The stadium won’t be as intimidating as it usually is, sure the people will be passionate but it’s not like it would be if it was the first game. Now with a five goal start and considering they are five away goals which count as two, everyone will be very calm and enjoying it as a spectacle.

Jordan come and enjoy the food, music, beaches, port and make sure you visit the Museum of Futbol………
