At time of 1924 Olympia Games in Paris, Uruguay toured Europe for the first time, playing many matches against Club Teams..
Is there the complete list of all the friendlies they played?
Is there the same for 1928, before and after the Olympia Games in Amsterdam?
Thanks.

OK for 1924. Thanks.
But in it is clearly reported that in 1928 Uruguay toured France, to play some Friendlies, before getting to Netherlands, for the Olympia Games.
And I remember an Italian source (may be a book) where I read that tour in France was another  great success for the Uruguayan Team, who lost only one match.
Unfortunately, I have no other details.

I want to show the following complete file, to avoid misunderstanding.

LA BREVE GIRA DARSENERA POR EUROPA DE 1936 El futbol uruguayo realizo sus primeras presentaciones en Europa a partir de la decada del 20. El primer equipo uruguayo (y sudamericano) que se presento en el Viejo Continente fue la Seleccion de Uruguay en 1924 presentandose primero en España (donde disputo 9 partidos ganandolos todos) y luego en Francia disputando el torneo olimpico de futbol de Paris (donde gano los 5 partidos que disputo) consagrandose campeon olimpico y mundial de futbol. Luego en 1925 se presento el Club Nacional, en 1927 Peñarol,

1928 nuevamente la Seleccion de Uruguay (jugando amistosos en Francia y luego en Holanda en los Juegos Olimpicos de Amsterdam)

y en 1929 jugo en Europa el club Rampla Juniors (con gran suceso, ganando 13 de los 19 partidos jugados). Fue recien en 1936 que otro equipo uruguayo regreso al viejo continente, fue el River Plate de Montevideo. Su primer y unica presentacion en Europa se produjo el 19 de Marzo de 1936 en el mitico Estadio de Colombes ante un Combinado de Paris conformado por jugadores de los Clubes Red Star y Racing Club de Paris (muchos de sus jugadores integraban habitualmente la Seleccion de Francia). El partido termino 1 a 1 y los jugadores uruguayos se sintieron muy molestos por la actuacion del juez frances demasiado localista lo que llevaron a algunos incidentes con el posterior retiro del arbitro frances por entender de que no habian garantias para seguir disputando el encuentro. Tras aquel partido se decidio que la gira no seguiria y River Plate volvio a Montevideo antes de lo previsto. Aqui vemos entonces el registro filmico de la unica presentacion darsenera en Europa. Aquel dia River Plate alineo con Stipanicic, Lorenzo Fernandez, Ferreira(Sena), Larraura, Olivera, Guarneri, Celsi,Arrillaga, Cadilla, Feiticio, Lerena. El autor del tanto darsenero fue Sena. Se destaca la presencia del gran Lorenzo Fernandez el cual se ve al principio del film como capitan de River en el saludo y cambio de banderines con el capitan frances Delfour.

Maybe one of Gianni Brera's books? He was a great admirer of the Uruguayans. I've found a quick note on his Il Mestiere del Calciatore, where he says that, in 1924, during their Olympic tour, they gave a football lesson to Genoa.
I probably read some very brief notes also on Storia del Calcio in Italia by Antonio Ghirelli, but I am almost sure there was no list of friendlies.

Aaaaaahhhhhh. . . Luca, you want to remember me one of Genoa's defeats!!!
Yes, you are right about Brera. He is 90% the author of the book where I read that note.
But the book was not "Il mestiere del Calciatore". It was another one and I hope to find it in the next days.

I apologize, Giampaolo! But I'm sure that was one of the very few Genoa's defeats, because, at that time, they were a powerful team - and the Italian reigning champions.
A special mention for the great Gianni Brera, as, exactly today, he would have celebrated his 98th birthday Image

Standards are falling on this forum.  Must be getting close to the Enlightenment.  I can almost taste the custard creams...

Take your 3 cans and numb the pain.

As tasty as enlightenment sounds though, I'll save the day with my planned AlterNations thread (or AnimaNations, or AmiNations, not decided yet)... no enlightenment happens until we've crossed the full threshold of insanity, and we're not even halfway there yet 😎...

13th Apr 1924 Vigo, Celta - Uruguay 1-4
20th Apr 1924 Bilbao, Athletic - Uruguay 1-2

Genoa isn't mentioned, so it may be incomplete.

Thanks, Neil, for the details.
Probably the author of the book (Gianni Brera) made confusion with the defeats (1-2 and 0-3) of Genoa against:
Uruguay in Montevideo in 1923
and
Nacional of Montevideo in Genova in 1925.
