The abanico had the centre-forward as the creator of the team. This particular position alongside the Scottish style, also called withdrawn centre-forward — today's attacking midfielder —, potentialized South America's football, mainly Uruguay & Argentina. According to many specialists, the team which could reflect the abanico was Uruguay 1912, which was one of the best sides Uruguay ever had.
