Héctor Pedro Scarone (November 26, 1898 – April 4, 1967) was a Uruguayan football striker. With 31 goals in 52 games between 1917 and 1930 he still holds the record as the all-time leading scorer for the Uruguayan national team.[1]


Club career

He was born in Montevideo in 1898 from an Italian family originally from Savona, Liguria.

At club level, Scarone spent most of his career with Nacional, with whom he won the Uruguayan championship eight times. He scored a total of 301 goals for the club in 369 appearances.

He also played for Spanish side FC Barcelona, and Inter Milan and Palermo in Italy.

National team

He won the South American Championship four times: in 1917, 1923, 1924, and 1926, and the Olympic gold medal twice: in 1924 and 1928.

At the age of 19, he scored the goal that gave Uruguay the title at the 1917 South American Championship, in the final against Argentina, his fourth international match.

Scarone finished his international career by leading Uruguay to the 1930 FIFA World Cup, and although his international career ended that same year, the 31 goals (in 52 matches) he scored for his country still stand as of 2009 as the national record.
