  • Description

    The French national soccer team overcome another obstacle in their way to the World Cup Championships in Chile, when they best Bulgaria by three goals to nil at the Stade Colombes, Paris, Dec 11.

    Now leading the table in Group 2 qualifying matches, French were just that little bit faster. Despite various chances, the first half whistle went when neither side had scored.

    Rodzik, France's left full back, was once again the aggressive strong men of the match. Coming through fast during a second half attack, he headed the ball from Bulgarian goalkeeper Naidenov's hands and into the net for the first French goal.

    A corner kick by French outside-right Wisnieski led to the second goal. His cross into the goalmouth was converted by left-half Marcel. Now the Bulgarian defence showed signs of panic.

    The final goal was the culmination of some fine forward co-ordination. Wisnieski passed to centre-forward Douis who shot hard for goal. The ball struck the bar and rebounded to the feet of outside-left Cossou who made no mistake with a first time shot.

    In Holsinki on Sept 25 this year, France best Finland - the other member of Group 2 - by two goals to one. Other matches to be played are; - Finland v Bulgaria in Helsinki on June 16, 1961; France v Finland in Paris Sept 27, 1961; Finland v Bulgaria in Sofia Oct 29, 1961; and Bulgaria v France in Sofia Nov 12 1961.
