    Background: BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA

    The Argentine Soccer Cup had to be abandoned only twenty minutes into the second half when rioting fans set light to the stands. In the violence which followed, 70 were arrested and one policeman seriously wounded. The match, played in Buenos Aires on May 31, saw just one goal in the second minute, giving Ferrocarril Oeste victory over River Plate. Oscar Agonil took a free kick for Ferrocarril, passed to Carlos Arregui who shot for Adolfino Canece to head the ball in. In the second half, as Ferrocarril attacked. Alberto Marcico shot but Neri Pumpido saved the ball for River Plate. Increasingly restless River Plate fans tore planks from the stands and lit a fire. Faced with chaos, the referee declared the match over and Ferrocarril Oeste, who were leading at the time, were declared winners and national champions. Jubilant supporters then invaded the pitch to mob the winners, pulling off their shirts and shorts. River Plate fans heaped more wood on to the fire, then turned as their rivals came streaming towards them. Stones and planks flew before police moved in to make arrests.
