  • Description

    THE CZECHOSLOVAKIAN CLUB DUKLA WON THE AMERICAN CHALLENGE CUP 2-1 ON AGGREGATE ON SUNDAY WHEN THEY DREW 1-1 WITH THE ENGLISH CLUB WEST HAM. THEY WON THE FIRST LEG IN CHICAGO 1-0 LAST WEDNESDAY.

    WEST HAM A LONDON FIRST DIVISION CLUB AND WINNERS OF THE AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL SOCCER LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP, LACKED THE EXPERIENCE OF DUKLA WHO HAVE WON THE CUP FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS. WHILE WEST HAM WERE ABLE TO MATCH DUKLA'S COMBINATION PLAY, THEY LACKED THE CZECHOSLOVAKIANS' INDIVIDUAL SKILL.

    IT WAS 40 MINUTES BEFORE EITHER SIDE WERE ABLE TO TREAT THE 15,000 STRONG CROWD TO A GOAL, BUT THE GAME WAS CONSTANTLY CLEVER AND FAST-MOVING. THE FIRST GOAL FELL TO WEST HAM WHEN PETER BRABROOK, AN INTERNATIONAL, BEAT TWO CZECH DEFENDERS TO SEND TEAM-MATE KIRKUP SCAMPERING DOWN THE FIELD. KIRKUP CENTRED AND SCOTT MOVED IN TO SEND THE BALL INTO THE NET CLEAR OF THE CZECH INTERNATIONAL GOAL-KEEPER KOUBA.

    THE HALF-TIME SCORE: 1-0 TO WEST HAM.

    THE SECOND HALF STARTED WITH WEST HAM NEEDING A GOAL FOR A DECISIVE LEAD. BUT THEIR HOPES WERE SUNK WHEN DUKLA SCORED IN THE 60TH MINUTE. THE CZECH'S STAR FORWARD KUCERA STARTED THE MOVEMENT. HE PASSED THE BALL TO MASOPUST WHO DEFTLY PUSHED IT INTO THE NET PAST GOAL-KEEPER STANDEN.

    AND SO FOR THE THIRD YEAR RUNNING DUKLA WON THE AMERICAN CHALLENGE CUP.
