The FIFA World Cup 2022 is quickly approaching, and all 32 qualifying nations are preparing to put their best foot forward. While teams plan their strategies for the competition, Argentina and Uruguay are committed to keeping their players motivated, bringing a combined 2,000 pounds of meat to Qatar to ensure that their contingent does not miss eating home-cooked meals.
Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) president Ignacio Alonso revealed their rather unusual team strategy in an unconventional statement.
What did the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) president Ignacio Alonso say ahead of the FIFA World Cup 2022?
“The national team is being accompanied by the best nourishment. The AUF is a historic ambassador of our country and will take with it another ambassador, which is Uruguayan meat, the best meat in the world,” Alonso said.
Even the President of Uruguay’s National Institute of Meat (INAC), Conrado Ferber and his team are going above and beyond to provide their players with the best meat possible while keeping their spirits high. The president in an interview said: “We want to convey the quality of the product, natural and sustainable, and the World Cup is the optimal time to do so for our players,”
Argentina are also carrying their share of meat for the FIFA World Cup 2022
Argentina’s head coach, Lionel Scaloni, also emphasised the significance of the ‘Asado’ dish. He said: “My favourite food is asado, but it is much more than that. It’s part of our culture, an Argentine quirk. We get to talk, laugh, relax, and connect during that time. It’s not always about the meat, though we enjoy it. It is to be a part of a group and the bonds that it creates,” Scaloni said.
