And this is how the players that we train year after year are, who are children and young people who have meat as their nutritional base”, he highlighted.

Meat, soccer and mate
“It seemed to us that it was a duty that meat be represented in Qatar. Meat, soccer and mate are part of our identity; That’s why we go together, as it has been in history. What Uruguayan soccer has won has been gained by eating meat, and we hope that once again success will be accompanied by Uruguayan meat,” said Ferber.
Currently, Uruguay has the sanitary authorization to export meat to Qatar, both beef and sheep, although it mainly sells beef. The market in which this meat is sold is the hotel and tourist market, he explained.
In this World Cup in Qatar 2022, the Uruguayan team will be the ambassador of several agricultural productions, since in addition to promoting the meat produced in the Uruguayan countryside, it will also spread the work of shepherds and woolerswith the suits that the celestial delegation will wearwhich were made with national fine Merino wool.
In addition to meat, the AUF will also promote Uruguayan wool in Qatar.
