i tried translating the motto but misspelled it as libertad o muerde’, and the meaning of that is oddly appropriate for a quiz with a question about that footballer.

I misspelled it too. Think I typed muerto. I went back later and tried the word in english and that worked.

Not with you on that one. The 'a' is too far from all the other letters, which just throws my rhythm.

I've just noticed that 'uruguy' is a type-in, I still prefer it with the 'a' though!
