Museo del Fútbol Review

"Other countries have their history," Helenio Herrera, Uruguay's most famous soccer coach once said. "We have our fútbol." Indeed, fútbol—that's "soccer" to U.S. readers—is played anywhere there's space, by boys (and a growing number of girls) of all ages. Uruguay both hosted and won the first World Cup competition in 1930 here at the Estadio Centenario. In the bowels of the stadium is this museum dedicated to the country's soccer heritage. It's worth a detour if you're a big fan of the sport.
