Uruguay’s mercurial striker Juan Anselmo was presented with this magnificent dual-handled trophy after Uruguay claimed the 1930 FIFA World Cup title. Uruguay, the slight favorites to win the inaugural World Cup after claiming the 1924 and 1928 Olympic gold medals, used a balanced attack and a rock-solid defense to win the World Cup title on their home soil. Anselmo scored three goals during the tournament, grabbing Uruguay’s third in a 4-0 victory over Romania and scoring two goals during la Celeste’s 6-1 destruction of Yugoslavia in the semifinals. Despite not starting in the tournament final against Argentina, Anselmo was the second leading scorer for Uruguay in the tournament.

Domestically, Anselmo was a mainstay in the Peñarol lineup, winning numerous league titles with the aurinegro. Anselmo made 180 league appearances for Peñarol, scoring 102 goals during his 13 years with the club. Later, Anselmo succeeded the legendary Hungarian coach Bela Guttmann as Penarol’s manager, winning the 1962 Primera Division title after surrendering only nine goals in 18 matches.

This offered trophy measures 14 inches tall and is etched with “A.U. de F. Al Campeon Del Mundo Juan Pelegrin Anselmo 1930”. A raised crest etched with “Asoc. Uruguayo de Football” is affixed to the trophy as well. This trophy is in excellent condition and represents an incredible piece of World Cup history. This item comes with a LOA confirming it is part of the Rony Almeida Soccer Collection.
