  • Description

    BRAZIL AND WEST GERMANY HAD A TWO-ALL DRAW IN THEIR INTERNATIONAL SOCCER MATCH IN RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL AT THE WEEKEND. BRAZIL WAS DISAPPOINTED IN ITS ATTEMPT TO AVENGE A HARD-FOUGHT 2-1 DEFEAT BY WEST GERMANY IN STUTTGART IN JUNE THIS YEAR.

    BRAZIL'S HOPES WERE HIGH AT HALT-TIME, WHEN THE SCORE WAS 2-0 IN FAVOUR OF THE HOME TEAM. RIGHT WINGER EDU SCORED BOTH GOALS FOR BRAZIL, ALTHOUGH STAR PLAYER PELE TOOK A SHARE OF THE GLORY.

    THE BRAZILIANS WENT INTO THE SECOND HALF CONFIDENT OF A VICTORY, BUT THE WEST GERMAN STAMINA MANAGED TO BREAK DOWN THEIR DEFENCE. THE FIRST WEST GERMAN GOAL WAS SCORED BY HELD, WHEN HE DROVE PAST BRAZILIAN GOALKEEPER PICASSO IN THE 48TH MINUTE.

    IN THE 73RD MINUTE GERWIN OF WEST GERMANY CRASHED HOME A FINE EQUALISING GOAL, AND FROM THEN ON NEITHER SIDE WAS ABLE TO TIP THE BALANCE. THE HUGE CROWD AT RIO DE JANEIRO'S MARACANA STADIUM WAS OBVIOUSLY DISAPPOINTED BY BRAZIL'S DECLINE AFTER SUCH A HOPEFUL START.

    A SPOKESMAN FOR THE WEST GERMAN TEAM SAID THEIR CHANCES OF A WIN MIGHT HAVE BEEN IF GERD MUELLER AND HORST-DIETER HOETTGES -- TWO STAR PLAYERS -- HAD BEEN ON THE FIELD. BUT THEY HAD BEEN DROPPED PREVIOUSLY FOR PENALTIES INCURRED IN OTHER GAMES.
