Prodigal Sons: Forlan & Tevez the latest in a growing line of South American stars going home

As the match announcer cried out his name, Diego Forlan emerged from the tunnel at the Centenario Stadium and onto the field. He passed through a guard of honour, a TV camera shuttling alongside him, before being interviewed over the stadium’s PA.
