Uruguay, 1930, at home.

They defeated Argentina 4-2, and the final goal was scored by Castro, an Uruguayan who lacked one arm. He had an accident with a saw when he was a kid. And no, no googling. But it turns out El Pais had an interview today with Francisco Varallo. This Argentinean is the last survivor who played in that game. In case you're wondering, he's 100 years old.
