  • Description

    WORLD CUP QUALIFIERS FRANCE AND ITALY DREW 0 - 0 IN A WARM INTERNATIONAL BEFORE A CAPACITY CROWD OF 40,000 AT THE PARC DES PRINCESS STADIUM IN PARIS TODAY (SATURDAY).

    THE ITALIANS DOMINATED THE FIRST HALF WITH INTER-MILAN STAR FORWARDS, SANDRINO MAZZOLA AND MARIO CORFO PROMINENT MARCEL AUBOUR WAS KEPT VERY BUSY IN THE FRENCH GOAL, BUT GENERALLY THE ITALIANS WERE LACKING IN FINISHING POWER. IN DEFENCE, FRANCE WERE STRONG UNDER THE CONTINUAL PRESSURE BUT THEIR FORWARDS MADE LITTLE HEADWAY AGAINST THE IMPRESSIVE ITALIAN REARGUARDS.

    IN THE SECOND HALF, FRANCE CAME OUT OF THEIR DEFENSIVE SHELL AND CENTRE-FORWARD PHILLIPE GONDET PROVED A LIVELY LEADER.

    ITALIAN GOALKEEPER ENRICO ALBERTOSI SHOWED HIS SKILL IN DEALING WITH A SERIES OF HIGH SHOTS AS FRANCE BEGAN TO ATTACK WITH MORE METHOD. TOWARDS THE END, ITALY HAD A GOOD CHANCE OF SCORING FROM A FREE KICK BUT OUTSIDE-RIGHT MERONI SHOT STRAIGHT AT THE GOALKEEPER.

    THIS WAS THE 24TH MEETING BETWEEN FRANCE AND ITALY -- FRANCE WON THREE MATCHES AND LOST 16. ENGLAND ARE DRAWN IN THE SAME GROUP AS FRANCE WHILE ITALY ARE TO FACE RUSSIA.
