  • Description

    England scored three goals in the first twenty minutes to beat Portugal three-nil on Sunday (May 30) in Prague to win the International Youth Soccer Tournament, the 24th, to be held.

    England, who last won this "little World Cup" eight years ago, showed no signs of the difficulty in scoring goals which had marked their earlier displays as they attacked from the kick-off.

    Portugal, who had won their four tournament matches up to now, never remotely threatened England's superiority. Film from Czechoslovak Television.

    The German Democratic Republic earlier beat the Soviet Union to take third place in the tournament behind England and Portugal.

    SYNOPSIS: England, in the white shirts, met Portugal on Sunday in Prague, in the final match of the International Youth soccer tournament.

    The English boys tore into Portugal from the start, and a goal came in the sixth minute. Johnny Ayris shot into the right-hand corner of the net.

    The English President of FIFA, Sir Stanley Rous, was there to see England press home the advantage. Their next goal came in the nineteenth minute, Paul Eastoe scoring with a fine header.

    England continued to press hard, and the Portuguese did not look good under pressure. The English boys looked keen to make up in this game for their goal famine in the tournament so far.

    The Portuguese goalkeeper did well to stop England running riot.

    The Portuguese boys tried to push up-field but their forwards were not as forceful as the English, who kept breaking up the Portuguese attacks. It was no surprise when England scored their third goal through Eastoe, following a corner kick. And this was how it ended, all the goals coming in the first half.

    England, who won this 'little World Cup' eight years ago, were deserving victors this time in Czechoslovakia. Portugal, second in the tournament, had done better earlier. East Germany took third place.
