-These are accounts relayed by Match Referee, the Belgian Johannes (John) Langensus:
In Between the Semifinal and the Final he had visited Buenos Aires. The Argentineans had ten boats to sail towards Uruguay on the day of the Final, leaving from Buenos Aires, Rosario and La Plata.
He learned only the day before the Final that he would referee the match.
The Boat returning to Europe was scheduled to depart at 3 PM on the day of the Final. He convinced the boating company to delay their departure by two hours so that he would be able to make it.
He saw many Argentineans departing from Buenos Aires, holding signs ‘Argentina, Si! Uruguay, No!’.

He took a boat from Buenos Aires to Montevideo that many people rushed into.
That night Sports Journalists kept knocking on his cabin door for an interview.
Because of heavy Fog, 8 out of the 10 boats had been delayed and only arrived after the match had ended.
There were security concerns and the Belgian Federation accepted only by mid-day that Langenus would referee the Final.
The plan was to leave the stadium immediately after the match so that he would make it to the boat.
He did hear rumors that the Argentinean players were threatened.
Another rumor that according to him was false was that the Police had helped him escape from the stadium. In actuality, him and his compatriot Assistant from Belgium, Henri Christophe were driven to the port with two Police cars to avoid traffic.
Once he reached port, the ‘SS Duilio’ had not even reached the port because the fog had delayed its arrival.
He was eventually informed that the boat would arrive the following morning.
That day he saw no cars in the streets only crowds celebrating.

-A month later on September 6th, 1930, Argentina’s President Hipolito Yrigoyen was deposed in a Coup.

-There has been much speculation over the decades about Argentina International and hard-man Luis Felipe ‘Luisito’ Monti’s poor display in the Final.

-Raul Jude, the President of Uruguay Football Federation, received the World Cup Trophy from Jules Rimet at the post match dinner after the World Cup Final.
