    AT HIGHBURY ARENA, LONDON, TONIGHT (TUESDAY) THE BRITISH CLUB ARSENAL DEFEATED THE VISITING CORINTHIANS, REPRESENTING BRAZIL, BY TWO GOALS TO NIL, IN A MATCH TO ASSIST THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S AWARD SCHEME.

    IT HAD ORIGINALLY BEEN INTENDED THAT BRAZIL SHOULD SEND A FULL NATIONAL TEAM. HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF TWO INTERNATIONAL MATCHES AT HOME THIS SUNDAY, THEY WERE REPRESENTED BY THE CORINTHIANS.

    THE CORINTHIANS ARE SECOND IN THE SAO PAULO LEAGUE IN BRAZIL. WHILE SHOWING MANY ARTISTIC TOUCHES, THE BRAZILIANS SEEMED GENERALLY OUT OF TOUCH AFTER A FLIGHT OF 8,000 MILES AND A TEMPERATURE DROP OF MORE THAN 50 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT.

    ARSENAL PLAYED WITH PRECISION AND PACE, AND FOR MOST OF THE MATCH HAD THE PRESSURE OF THE BRAZILIANS.

    SAMMELS SCORED FOR ARSENAL IN THE 11TH MINUTE. BURNS CLEARED THE BALL OVER HALF-WAY FOR BAKER TO HEAD ON. SAMMELS HELD OFF TWO DEFENDERS AND WITH A TREMENDOUS SHOT FROM THE BACK OF THE PENALTY AREA LEFT CORINTHIANS GOALIE, MARCIAL, HELPLESS.

    ARSENAL'S SECOND GOAL ALSO WENT TO SAMMELS WITH 18 MINUTES TO GO. HE BELTED HOME ANOTHER SHOT FROM 25 YARDS, THE BALL SWERVING WIDE TO DECEIVE MARCIAL.

    AFTER THE MATCH, THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH PRESENTED A MEDAL TO DR. MURGEL OF THE BRAZILIAN FOOTBALL FEDERATION, COMMEMORATING THE GOLDEN JUBILEE OF THE FEDERATION. HE ALSO PRESENTED MEMENTO BOWLS TO DR. MURGEL AND MR. HILL-WOOD, CHAIRMAN OF ARSENAL, AND ASH-TRAYS TO THE MEMBERS OF BOTH TEAMS.

    THE SCORES AGAIN; ARSENAL 2 CORINTHIANS (BRAZIL) 0.
