  • Description

    WALES PLAYED SCOTLAND AT SOCCER YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) IN CARDIFF. THE RESULT WAS A I-I DRAW.

    SCOTLAND DID NEARLY ALL THE ATTACKING AND WALES HAD TO DEFEND DESPERATELY. GARY SPRAKE, THE WELSH GOALKEEPER, HAD MANY NARROW ESCAPES. THE SCOTS POSSESSED MUCH MORE INDIVIDUAL SKILL, BUT FAILED TO HARNESS IT TO FULL ADVANTAGE, AND THE WELSH ALMOST SNATCHED VICTORY WITH A SHOCK GOAL BY RON DAVIES AFTER 77 MINUTES.

    AN ESTIMATED CROWD OF 30,000 PERSONS ROARED FOR A WELSH VICTORY, BUT DENNIS LAW SEIZED ON A HALF CHANCE WHEN SPRAKE COULD ONLY PARRY A SHOT, AND NETTED THE EQUALISER THREE MINUTES BEFORE THE FINAL WHISTLE BLEW.
