The truth is that this is something that we will only see again if the regulations that apply today are changed. Obviously this in itself lends uniqueness to the fact that the Argentinian with Italian roots, Luis Monti, took part in two consecutive World Cup finals, in 1930 and 1934, each time with a different team.
In 1930 as a member of Argentina in Montevideo, Uruguay and in 1934 with the jersey of Italy in Rome. In the first final he saw Uruguay beat Argentina 4-2, in the second he celebrated Italy’s 2-1 victory over Czechoslovakia.
Luis Mody is considered one of the most complete footballers of all time. His nickname was “double-leaf wardrobe”. For obvious reasons. In fact he was one of the first footballers around the world to change National team as “homogenes”, the infamous “orudi” in Italy.
Born on May 15, 1901 – died on September 9, 1983 – Luis Felipe Mody was in some ways the protagonist of the encounter that went down in history as “the Battle of Highbury”. It was about England – Italy (November 14, 1934) at the then Arsenal stadium, Highbury.
Rumors of the time wanted Benito Mussolini to reward a lavish victory over the hated British. In the 10th minute Arsenal midfielder Ted Drake hit Mody. He broke his leg and since substitutions were not allowed at the time, the Italians were left with ten players.
The English led 3-0, the Italians began to hit the… cold and eventually reduced to 3-2. Modi spent a year away from the pitches and stopped football in 1936. At club level he played for Santos Lugares, Central Miter Buenos Aires Aires, Huracán, San Lorenzo, Palermo Buenos Aires and Juventus.
