Soccer Competition 1943

Soccer has become a fixture in youth sports in the USA over the past few decades, but fútbol has reigned in Central and South America for much longer. This image is from the US Library of Congress, of a soccer competition in El Salvador in 1943. The image shows a player heading a fútbol ball superimposed on a map of Central America and the Caribbean Islands. (Yes, I know, it’s not a particularly good image.)
