  • Description

    Soccer players in Uruguay's national team who went out on strike for ten days before the weekend, are now threatening to stop playing again.

    They are demanding a "Footballers Player's Statute" and a committee to plan it. The players signed an agreement to end the strike at the weekend, and to set up a joint committee with the Uruguayan Football Association to plan the statute.

    However, they say they will walk off the pitches again if the committee is not in action by Thursday.

    The team is entered in the eliminatory stage of the 1974 World Cup. The first big match against Argentina is scheduled for May 16th, and their immediate programme is warm up matches for this game.
