Austria 1-1 Uruguay

Austria threatened to snatch the UFWC title from unofficial champions Uruguay in this international friendly in Klagenfurt. The home side led for more than 50 minutes thanks to a goal from Marc Janko of Trabzonspor. But a scrappy equaliser saved Uruguay, with a draw on the night sufficient for them to retain the title, and continue the UFWC’s journey towards the World Cup Finals in Brazil.

Uruguay 0-0 Jordan

Uruguay held off a brave Jordan to retain the UFWC title – and confirm their qualification for the 2014 World Cup finals. Jordan needed to win this play-off second leg by at least five goals to qualify for the World Cup, with Uruguay having won the first leg 5-0. But a win by just one goal tonight would have made Jordan UFWC champions, with both legs counting as separate title matches. In truth, the visitors never really looked like scoring in Montevideo, but they did at least restore some pride after last week’s thrashing.

Jordan 0-5 Uruguay

Unofficial football world champions Uruguay comfortably defeated Jordan to retain the UFWC title and effectively book a place at Brazil 2014. This was the first leg of the CONMEBOL World Cup play-off. The second leg will be played next Wednesday 20 November, and having built up such a lead it seems impossible that Uruguay will not qualify. However, under UFWC rules the two legs of the play-off count as two entirely separate matches. So there is still a good measure of interest left in this play-off.

It was a 17th UFWC title match win for the new champions, and their first since 2006. The margin of victory wasn’t enough to secure an automatic qualification place for Uruguay, and they will now need to win a two-legged play-off in order to join Argentina in Brazil next summer.

Argentina 3-1 Peru

Although this match was a 2014 World Cup qualifier, it was the Unofficial Football World Championships that provided most interest. Argentina had already qualified for the World Cup Finals in Brazil, while Peru had already been eliminated. So the UFWC title was the only thing that really mattered. In the end, a win for Argentina allowed them to retain their UFWC title and – thanks to Colombia’s draw with Chile – secure top spot in the WC qualifying table.
