  • Description

    A RUSSIAN FOOTBALL TEAM, THE SHATIOR CLUB, IS VISITING NIGERIA. ON SUNDAY THE TEAM PLAYED A FRIENDLY INTERNATIONAL MATCH AGAINST THE NIGERIAN FEDERAL START CLUB AND WON 3-2.

    BEFORE THE MATCH, BOTH TEAMS MET CHIEF J.M. JOHNSON, FEDERAL MINISTER OF LABOUR AND SOCIAL WELFARE. ALSO IN THE OFFICIAL PARTY WAS THE SOVIET AMBASSADOR, F.P. DOLYA AND HIS WIFE.

    THE WINNING GOAL WAS SCORED THREE MINUTES FROM THE FINAL WHISTLE BY TCHEZNICHENKO, WHO HAD BEEN BROUGHT ON A FEW MINUTES BEFORE AS A SUBSTITUTE.

    IN THE FIRST HALF, THE VISITORS HAD TAKEN EVERY ADVANTAGE OF THE MORE OPEN PLAY OF THE HOME TEAM. THEY SCORED TWO GOALS IN QUICK SUCCESSION --- BOTH BY ROOLIN.

    THE NIGERIAN PLAYERS DID NOT SCORE IN THE FIRST HALF, AND BEGAN THE SECOND HALF ON THE ATTACK. THEIR FIRST GOAL CAME FROM A PENALTY KICK BY THE CAPTAIN, GODWIN ACHERE. THE EQUALIZER CAME SOON AFTERWARDS, BUT IN THE FINAL MINUTES THE RUSSIANS SCORED AGAIN, AND THERE WAS NO TIME FOR-THE FEDERAL STARS TO RALLY.
