On the 10th of January of 1981, exactly 37 years ago, Uruguay and Brazil met in the final of the Mundialito (Little World Cup in Spanish), also known as Copa de Oro de los Campeones (World Champions’ Gold Cup). Their game was the conclusion of a bizarre and unprecedented international tournament. Uruguay, the hosts, really sought a victory. It was not about football but a matter of national pride and morale. Uruguay was under a dictatorship since 1973, when there had been a military coup.
