The Uruguayan boys’ football team at the Danone Nations Cup

Uruguay joined the Danone Nations Cup in 2007.  The Uruguayan football team held the title of best goalkeeper in 2010 and best scorer in 2011. The young Uruguayans play with their heart. They are passionate, show determination and play a constantly progressive game. The Uruguayans are already preparing to take part in the new edition of the Danone Nations Cup.

 

Uruguay and football

Football was introduced at the end of the 19th century by English workers, sent to Uruguay to improve the railways. Uruguayans quickly became passionate about the sport, and many clubs were founded throughout the country, as well as the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) in 1902. In 1930, at the first football World Cup, Uruguay won the first title of World Champions in the history of football. The Uruguayan national team were crowned a second time in 1950. Then, for several decades, the national team experienced some difficulties. Today, the Uruguayan national team is slowly regaining their reputation and is taking part once again in international tournaments.

 

The young prodigy Maximiliano Araujo, ambassador for Uruguay at the DNC

Maximiliano Araujo as the ambassador of Uruguay is the one who inspires the young Uruguayans.  Just like them, he defended the Uruguayan colours at the Danone Nations Cup in 2012. At just 19 years old, he proves to the Uruguayan players that the competition can give great opportunities, and that giving your best on the field is essential, because it can make a difference. Today Maximiliano Araujo plays for Wanderers in the first division in Uruguay and he has represented his country at the U20s World Cup in Poland in 2019.
