In the their first game in Mexico in 1970, Celeste del Uruguay met World cup debutants, Israel. Uruguayan team were entirely combined by players of two great club sides of the sixties, Nacional and Peñarol. Unfortunately for world champions of 1930 and 1950, their 1970 World cup bid suffered a blow as their arguably best player, the captain Pedro Rocha, was seriously injured after only a few minutes of the game and would miss the rest of the tournament.
However, the Celeste proved to be too strong for the unexperienced Israeli team and beat them by the goals on each side of half-time from Ildo Maneiro and Juan Mujica.
Israel team improved in their following matches and got two creditable draws, against Sweden and Italy respectively.
