World Cup Countdown Day 8: Uruguay stuns Maracana

World Cup Countdown Day 8: Lazy Fan Sports look back at Uruguay wins 2nd World Cup. The Uruguayans won the game 2-1 to lift the trophy for the second time.

“The 1950 FIFA World Cup, held in Brazil from 24 June to 16 July 1950, was the fourth FIFA World Cup. It was the first World Cup since 1938, the planned 1942 and 1946 competitions having been cancelled due to World War II. It was won by Uruguay, who had won the inaugural competition in 1930. They clinched the cup by beating the hosts Brazil 2–1 in the deciding match of the four-team final group. This was the only tournament not decided by a one-match final. It was also the first tournament where the trophy was referred to as the Jules Rimet Cup, to mark the 25th anniversary of Jules Rimet’s presidency of FIFA.” – Wikipedia.
