Juan Carlos Muñoz, Jose Manuel Moreno, Adolfo Pedernera, Angel Labruna and Felix Loustau

Juan Carlos Muñoz, the only living member of the most legendary team in Argentine football history, the River Plate team of the 1940’s, has passed away at the age of 90.

Muñoz was one of the five famous forwards, along with Loustau and Argentine football legends Moreno, Pedernera, and Labruna that played in “The Machine”, the name given to those River Plate teams.

Muñoz was known for his speed and dribbling skills and helped River win the Argentine league championship in 1941, 1942, 1945 and 1947.

The Machine was so loaded in talent that Alfredo Di Stefano, who was on several of those teams, struggled to make it into the starting lineup.

Di Stefano has repeatedly said that The Machine was the best team he’s ever seen.
