The oldest surviving player of the 1930 World Cup final celebrates his 100th birthday. Happy birthday, Francisco Varallo! The Argentinian
goalkeeper striker still remembers vividly the day Argentina lost to Uruguay in the inaugural World Cup.
“I achieved a lot of nice things in my career: I represented the national team and was Boca’s record goalscorer,” said the man of the moment. “However, in my whole life I’ve never felt such a bitter pain as losing that World Cup Final against Uruguay in 1930.”
