  • Description

    Zaire, Africa's representatives in the World Cup Final, best West German regional league team VFB Oldenburg 5-2 in Oldankurg on Monday (3 June) in a preparatory game for next week's finals.

    Zaire's Yugoslav trainer Vidinic must have been heartened by the win because his side has lost their other friendly games in Switzerland and Italy.

    The standard of play was well below international standard but Zaire scored several fine goals although their defence looked suspect.

    Wegner put Oldenburg in the lead after 15 minutes but Zaire went ahead before half time with goals from Kidumu and Swanga. Kabasso and Mayanga scored two excellent goals to double Zaire's lead. Struckmann pulled one back for Oldenburg from the penalty spot but Mana added a fifth and final goal for Zaire.

    Zaire are in Group Two with Brazil, Yugoslavia and Scotland. They play their first World Cup match against Scotland in Dortmund on June 16. Their trainer Mr. Vidinic said he expected no successes but this team was the most pleasant in his coaching career because they all loved football so much.
