We do not have great economic resources, but we are going to resort to history“, was one of the phrases of the act. In addition, the motto “Together 2030” stands out, with the flag of the countries involved in what would be the future organization of the contest. On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, Spain and Portugal appear as competitors direct.

“It is the dream of a continent. Of a Uruguayan people, shared by three other peoples. South America understands that soccer has to recognize and not dispute. There will be more World Cups, but 100 years will be fulfilled for the only time and you have to go home. It is more than enough reason for FIFA to accept that it is a single candidacy. With the passing of the years there will be other possibilities for other continents,” said the aforementioned Domínguez.
