Uruguay soccer great Alcides Ghiggia is in critical condition in

a coma with multiple injuries and breathing problems following a

traffic accident.

His son Arcadio Ghiggia, told the daily El Pais newspaper in

Montevideo on Friday that he’s in critical condition and ”doctors

are doing all they can.” He says there’s nothing to do but wait

and see.

the 1950 World Cup for Uruguay.
