River and its story: second installment
With you, dear readers, the second installment of the story of one of the most important clubs in our country: River Plate. If you want to read the beginning of everything, you can click here.
We are in 1914, River is already affirmed in the first division of the National Tournament, has a stadium and transformed into a very popular. There is only something missing, something very fundamental: a title.
The long-awaited title will arrive, as we said, in 1914: the Jockey ClubCompetition Cup. The final is once again (as would be the promotion to the first division a few years earlier) against Racing Club . The match comes out 2-1, and gives him the right to play the Cup Tie Competition against Bristol of Uruguay (a kind of proto Libertadores). He also wins that match, this time 1 to 0, which makes River win his first national title and first international titlein a few months.
River River and the Argentine National Team: a relationship for life
In 1916 there is another thing that happens for the first time in history and of which River is the protagonist: the first Copa América is played. And we say that River is the protagonist because the national team would be composed of several players of the millionaire, including goalkeeper Carlos Isola, defender Arturo Chiappeand steering wheel Cándido García. The link between River and selection had begun, a link that would never be broken again.
A detail we haven’t talked about yet: the shirt was not as we know it today, it was red, white and black vertical stripes (recently they used a similar one as a tribute to this era). But it was in 1923 that another historic milestone was given: they got a lot on Alvear Avenue (now Del Libertador) and built a stadium for 40,000 people (a dementia for the number of fans of the time). It is on this court that he will get his first three official titles.
Hipólito Azema nació en Buenos Aires, en los comienzos de la década del 80. No se sabe desde cuándo, porque esas cosas son difíciles de determinar, le gusta contar historias, pero más le gusta que se las cuenten: quizás por eso transitó los inefables pasillos de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras de la Universidad de Buenos Aires. Una vez escuchó que donde existe una necesidad nace un derecho y se lo creyó.
