My story

I’m Katsuro Matsuda.
I was born in Tokio, Japan, where I live and work as a language teacher.
I opened this page to reclaim a hundred thousand yen I won a few months ago, when I took part to “The Shogun Treasure”, a Japanese TV quiz show broadcast on JPN Broadcast Channel where a hundred thousands yen is awarded to who gives the correct answers to ten questions.
And I did win.
The last question was: “Where did the World Championship take place in 1942?”
“In Patagonia”, I answered.
the TV network said that was not the correct answer because FIFA has never recognized or endorsed that particular edition of Football Mundial.
Since then, I have written to newspapers all over the World, and contacted a good many of the best journalists and soccer stars – today’s and of the past – asking for their solidarity and support in my rightful claim to the prize.
Now I am asking you too: please, should you have or be aware of any documents or evidence of the 1942’s World Championship, please do contact me
Yours sincerely,

    Hi mister Matsuda, reading about your story i remembered a book that i read when i was a child. This book is by Osvaldo Soriano and talk about that mundial. In the book he said that the mundial was played in Patagonia, but than he write that it’s a story he invented.
    Hope if this helps, the book name is “Cuentos de fútbol” the Italian name of the book is “All’ultimo Minuto”.
