History of the FIFA World Cup

The first World Cup was held in 1930 with 13 teams participating. The winning team at the time was Uruguay, as a result beating Argentina by a score of 4-2. In 2010, Argentina’s last player to take part in the competition, forward Francisco Varallo, died. He once shared his impressions of the momentous event: “We went to the final with Uruguay like we were going to war. I still can’t get over the loss”.
