With Obdulio Varela in the lineup, Uruguay NEVER lost in the World Cup. He was the last Uruguay Captain to get his hands on a World Cup trophy. In my opinion there is no debate, the greatest footballer Uruguay ever fielded was Obdulio Jacinto Varela. He was born on September 20, 1917, and on September 20 we celebrate his centenary.

Happy Birthday Negro Jefe!
