  • Description

    ITALY PLAYED FAST AND FLEXIBLE FOOTBALL TO WIN THE EUROPEAN SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIP WHEN THEY BEAT YUGOSLAVIA 2-0 IN THE REPLAYED FINAL IN ROME. TWO WELL TAKEN FIRST HALF GOALS CLINCHED THE MATCH FOR THE ITALIANS. THE PREVIOUS MATCH ENDED IN A 1-1 DRAW ON SATURDAY NIGHT AFTER EXTRA TIME.

    YUGOSLAVIA'S SKILFUL MOVEMENTS AND INDIVIDUAL FLAIR MADE THEM LOOK FAR MORE DANGEROUS ON SATURDAY NIGHT THAN THEY DID YESTERDAY.

    THE ROVING ANGELO DOMENGHINI LAID ON BOTH THE ITALIAN TEAM'S GOALS. AFTER ONLY 13 MINUTES HE CROSSED THE BALL FROM THE RIGHT WING AND INSIDE FORWARD LUIGI RIVA CRASHED IT INTO THE NET WITH A STRONG RIGHT-FOOTED SHOT.

    THEN IN THE 31ST MINUTE DOMENGHINI AGAIN CROSSED FROM THE RIGHT AFTER A FINE SOLO DRIBBLE AND PIETRO ANASTASI HOOKED THE BALL INTO THE GOAL.

    EVEN BEFORE THE END OF THE UNSPECTACULAR SECOND HALF, MANY ITALIANS IN THE 73,000 CROWD LIT NEWSPAPERS TO MARK THEIR TEAM'S TRIUMPH.
