Uruguay 1962 World Cup kits

World Cup 1962, Uruguay worst year in the World Cups tournament so far, been eliminated in the first round, after winning debut Colombia and losing to Yugoslavia and Soviet Union, and ended the team journey. What interesting about these Uruguay team kits, Red away shirts was worn on the World Cup match against Colombia.

The red jersey that was first worn at the 1935 Copa América, held in Santa Beatriz in Peru, which Uruguay won (until 1991, when it was officially adopted as the away jersey).
From the photo reference, the sock with the white trim.
