At the 1930 World Cup in Uruguay, Belgian referee John Langenus agreed to officiate only if there was a boat readied at Montevideo harbor for a hasty exit. The contest was marked by death threats, skirmishes over the match ball, shouts of “Victoria o muerte!” stone throwing at a consulate, and the declaration of a national holiday after Uruguay’s win over Argentina.
Oh, and 22 men played ball on a soccer field.
