Jorge Fossati: “The day he left the World Cup when he lost to Australia on penalties”

The qualification for the World Cup on penalties and lost against Australia is not something exclusive to Ricardo Gareca. In the fruitful and successful career of the new coach of Universitario de Deportes, it is a slip that Jorge Fossati will hardly forget. The well-known cream of the strategist’s command to qualify Uruguay for the 2006 World Cup in Germany, but, like the “tiger”, remained on the road, because surprisingly Australia in the plays allowed him from twelve steps.

WONDER: The dugouts arrived in Lima: “Fansus is the biggest player of the U.”

Qualifying for the tournament in German lands started irregularly for the blues who had DT. John Raymond Carrasco. The results were not so bad, out of the five games played, they won two, the other two were drawn and they got a respectable 3-3 victory against Brazil for their country. Until then, the war was not bad, however, in the Centenario Carrasco was defeated 3-0 by Venezuela and Jorge Fosatti was elected in his place.

The current DT cremations made his debut on June 1, 2004 against the Peruvian team led by Paulo Autori, and he did it with his left foot as the victory (3-1) went to the white and red. with goals from * Nolberto Solano, Claudius Pizarro and Jefferson Farfan. If Fossati’s premiere was bad, the second meeting was worse. Uruguay was thrashed 5-0 by Colombia in Barranquilla and more than one in Charrua’s country wondered if another one would replace Carrasco.

They suffered a stoppage in qualifying due to the controversial Copa América in Peru and the coach received a breath of fresh air when he came third after beating the coffee team 2-1. The characters played again and after a tough match with the Colombian team, Uruguay finished fifth and earned the right to play in the playoffs with Australia. Fossati was able to correct his career and out of the eleven games he played he won 4, drew 6 and only lost (4-2) with Argentina in Buenos Aires.

They believed that the celestials were fixed against the Australians. Already for the World Cup in Korea and Japan (2002) they also beat him in the games and this time they should not have problems, because in the game and the quality of the players, they felt immeasurably superior. In the moment of truth, neither history nor the famous charrúa reached the heavenly claws, in the first leg, played in Montevideo, Uruguay barely won 1-0 with a goal by Darío Rodríguez. The owners controlled the actions but could not find a way to a goal and to make matters worse they lost Diego Forlán, who had been the leading scorer in the Spanish league, to injury.

Without a scorer, Eastern appeared in Sydney for the decisive match on 16 November 2005. Due to the time difference with Australia, the country got up early to see what the new match was for the World Cup. The classes being suspended, work was ordered to be admitted afterwards, because there was confidence of victory. The 1-0 was left in doubt, however, it was believed that history and the quality of the players would do their thing and Fossati’s team would be present in Japan and Korea.

WONDER: ‘Toño’ Gonzales: ‘Compagnucci is not the only one at fault’.

In the moment of truth, Uruguay was a shadow and a team leader Guus Hiddink conditions imposed. A goal by Marco Brixiano tied the game and the game went into extra time. In 120 minutes there were no more goals and it went to penalties. In the definition from twelve steps, the local goal Mark Schwarzer became great and shot Marcelo Zalayeta and Darío Rodríguez and Australia won 4-2 and got the ticket for the World Cup.

The reaction of the press did not delay. “Goodbye, Uruguay left Germany in 2006, a global slap”, headlined the latest Noticias, “La celeste failed”, published “El País”. Fossati showed his face, apologized and tried to explain the damage. “I apologize to the people of Uruguay for the failure of this failure, for which I am primarily responsible for having a technical, tactical and physical team. It is the biggest blow of my life and my soul hurts to ask for forgiveness from Uruguay” the coach who was later replaced by “Maestro” Tabarez.
