1930 WC G1 R1 France - Mexico (joefa's World Cup History)

This is a video by joefa's World Cup History youtube channel. Go and subscribe to his channel. The only part of the film I disagree with is the description of the first World Cup goal by Lucien Laurent. I have seen photographs in the contemporary Argentinian newspaper La Prensa and Chilean magazine Los Sports that depict the goal ending up in the bottom right hand corner (the goalkeeper's left).
