    It way Real Madrid's fourth consecutive victory in the European Cup tournament, since its inception four years ago.

    A crowd of 73,000 spectators at the ground, plus innumerable fans all over Europe--it was transmitted over the Eurovision network--watched soccer 'wizards' Di Stefano; Kopa; Rial; and Ghen to cast their hypnotic spell over the opposing defence.

    One could almost call the match an 'international'...Real fielded ten Spanish international stars, and Rheims six of the French national team.

    Each of the Real Madrid players will receive a bonus of GBP350 for their win.
