    Background: THE SUAVE, PROFESSIONAL SKILL OF DIPLOMACY WON THE DAY AT TANGANYIKA'S ILALA STADIUM ON SATURDAY. FOR A TEAM OF FOREIGN DIPLOMATS BEAT A TEAM FIELDED BY THE TANGANYIKAN GOVERNMENT 4-2 IN ONE OF THE MOST COLOURFUL AND DISTINGUISHED GAMES EVER TO GRACE THE SOCCER FIELD.

    PRESIDENT NYERERE WAS THERE TO CHEER THE HOME SIDE AND PRESENT THE "PRESIDENT'S CUP" TO THE WINNERS. TICKETS VARIED FROM 10 SHILLING TO ONE SHILLING AND THE MONEY RAISED WENT TO THE NATIONAL HOUSING CORPORATION FUND WHICH AIMS TO CLEAR SLUMS FROM THE CAPITAL CITY. THE ORIGINATOR OF THE IDEA, THE MINISTER FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENT, MR. SHABA, ESTIMATED THE MATCH RAISED GBP1,000.

    BEFORE THE START, THE REFEREE, VICE-PRESIDENT MR. KAWAWA -- AND THE BEST-DRESSED MAN ON THE FIELD -- INSPECTED THE PITCH. AND THEN, TO LOUD CHEERS FROM THE CROWD, ON CAME THE TEAMS.

    THE PRESIDENT HAD A FEW WORDS WITH EACH TEAM AND THEN AN AUTHORITATIVE BLAST FROM THE VICE-PRESIDENT'S WHISTLE SET THE GAME IN MOTION.

    CAPTURING THE BALL FROM THE CABINET TEAM, THE DANISH CONSUL, MR. JORGENSEN, GAVE THE DIPLOMATS AND EARLY LEAD. FORMING AN ALLIANCE WITH MR. JORGENSEN BROUGHT A SECOND SCORE TO THE DIPLOMATS. A GO IT ALONE POLICY BY THE ALGERIAN CHARGE D' AFFAIRES, MR. DJOUDI, MADE THE SCORE 3-NIL TO THE DIPLOMATS BY HALF-TIME.

    MR. LEWANDOSKI BROUGHT THE DIPLOMAT'S SCORE TO 4 BUT AS THE PACE BEGAN TO TELL THE TANGANYIKAN GOVERNMENT STRUCK BACK AND ONLY STERLING WORK FROM THE ACTING BRITISH HIGH COMMISSIONER, MR. MILES, IN THE DIPLOMAT'S GOAL KEPT THE HOME TEAM'S SCORE TO 2.

    AT THE END OF 60 MINUTES, 22 SLIMMER MEN WALKED WITH ACCUSTOMED DIGNITY TO THE TOUCHLINE WHERE PRESIDENT NYERERE PRESENTED THE CUP TO THE DIPLOMAT'S CAPTAIN, MR. EL AMIN.

    PLAYING FOR THE DIPLOMATS WERE MR. MILES (BRITAIN); MR. OBRADOVIC (YUGOSLAVIA); MR. HORN (GREECE), MR. DINGLE (AUSTRALIA), MR. DER STADT (HOLLAND), MR. ROBERTS (CANADA), MR. FERGUSON (GHANA), MR DJOUDI (ALGERIA), MR. LEWANDONSKI (POLAND), MR. JORGENSEN (DENMARK), MR. EL AMIN (SUDAN).
