Diego Lugano criticizes geographic mistake that misplaces Uruguay on m
French sports news L'Équipe has published a map in which Uruguay and Paraguay were switched
Uruguay has already conquered two World Cup titles, but its localization on South America remains a problem for those alien to the continent. A proof of that was a map published by the famous L'Équipe, owned by the biggest sports news group of France. Having switched Uruguay and Paraguay's place in one edition of their magazines, they have produced the biggest World Cup bloomer so far.
The fact has outraged Uruguayan fullback and captain Diego Lugano, who has publicly complained about the newspaper acts. "I wonder if we get out winners of this championship will they ever learn the location of Uruguay. By highly prestiged L'Équipe...", he wrote, attaching the assertion to a photo of the magazine where the inversion is shown.
