We'll let that sink in for a moment, much like oozy caramel goodness soaking into a giant slice of double chocolate cake. 86 pounds! According to the BBC, it's unclear as to whether one person was carrying the entire lot, or if each player had a few jars over which he assumed complete and total responsibility.
Either way, the authorities clamped down, and until Uruguay produce the relevant documents, they're not getting their sweetened paste returned. That, or they'll just have to pick it up on the way out of town.
You can just imagine a customs official saying that with a smirk, can't you? Particularly after la celeste's performance in their first match.
Meanwhile, fans are blaming the lack of milky, sweetened goodness for Uruguay crumbling. Nothing to do with age or unwillingness to adapt their tactics - it's just a lack of appropriate sugar. After all, South Africa looked the other way, and look how well Uruguay did in 2010!
Someone should really let the Uruguay squad know that doce de leite is Portuguese for dulce de leche.
