The Football War
In the summer of 1969, the nations of Honduras and El Salvador went to war.
Tragically, nations do go to war, so this in and of itself isn’t unusual.
However, the spark which ignited this war was unlike any other in world history.
It had to do with a qualifying match for the 1970 FIFA World Cup.
Learn more about the Football War, its causes, and its resolution on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
