  • Description

    ITALY, IN THEIR FIRST INTERNATIONAL SOCCER MATCH SINCE THEIR POOR PERFORMANCE IN THE WORLD CUP FINALS IN ENGLAND IN JULY, BEAT THE SOVIET UNION 1 - 0 IN MILAN TODAY (TUESDAY).

    A CROWD OF 55,000 SAW ITALY WIN TODAY BY A GOAL SCORED BY CENTRE-HALF MARCATORE GUARNERI IN THE 22ND MINUTE.

    THE SOVIET UNION DEFENDED STRONGLY THROUGHOUT THE MATCH AND DOMINATED THE MID-FIELD BUT WEAK FINISHING IN THE ITALIAN GOALMOUTH STOPPED THEM FROM EQUALISING.

    ITALY MISSED AN EASY SCORING CHANCE IN THE 14TH MINUTE BUT FIGHT MINUTES LATER GUARNERI TOOK POSSESSION THREE YARDS FROM THE SOVIET GOAL AND BLASTED THE BALL PAST KEEPER JASCIN.

    THE SOVIET FORWARDS MADE NUMEROUS ATTEMPTS TO SCORE IN THE SECOND HALF BUT WERE UNABLE TO PENETRATE THE CLOSELY-PACKED ITALIAN DEFENCE.

    ITALY PLAYED IN THE SAME WORLD CUP GROUP AS THE SOVIET UNION BUT FAILED TO REACH THE QUARTER FINALS.
