Due to a dispute, a different ball was used in each half, one chosen by each team. Argentina's ball - left, was used for the first half, and Uruguay's ball, right, was used for the second half.

when Uruguay won the first world cup there was this stupid rule of using home and away balls so Uruguay were down by a few goals while using the away balls but after the first half they used the home balls and emerged winners resulting in a great controversy later on

saw this in another quiz hope my ans is right
