    BRAZIL SHOWED THAT THEY STILL BE A VERY STRONG TEAM FOR THE 1970 WORLD CUP WHEN THEY THRASHED URUGUAY 4-0 IN A SOCCER INTERNATIONAL AT RIO DE JANEIRO LAST WEDNESDAY. THE YELLOW SHIRTED BRAZILIANS WERE WITHOUT PLAYERS FROM THEIR BEST NATIONAL CLUB SIDE, SANTOS, WHO ARE ON TOUR OF EUROPE. BUT THEIR BRILLIANT ATTACKING PLAY WAS FAR TOO GOOD FOR THE URUGUAYANS, WHO ARE CONSIDERED ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS IN SOUTH AMERICA.

    THE CROWD AT RIO'S MARACANA STADIUM - BIGGEST FOOTBALL STADIUM IN THE WORLD - WENT WILD WHEN BRAZIL SCORED IN THE EIGHT MINUTES THROUGH A GOAL BY OUTSIDE RIGHT PAULO BORGES. FOUR MINUTES AFTER THE START OF THE SECOND HALF, BRAZIL WERE TWO UP. IT CAME WHEN RIVELINO TOOK A FREE KICK, URUGUAY'S GOAL-KEEPER BAZANNO MADE A BAD CLEARANCE AND TOSTAO SCORED. TWO MORE GOALS CAME IN THE LAST EIGHT MINUTES OF THE MATCH. GERSON NETTED AFTER 82 MINUTES FOLLOWING A LOVELY EXCHANGE OF PASSES OF PASSES BETWEEN HIM AND JAIRZINHO. THE FINAL GOAL CAME TWO MINUTES FROM THE END WHEN GERSON TOOK A FREE KICK AND JAIRZINHO SCORED. ONE OF THE BRAZILIAN FORWARDS, WILSON PIAZZA BROKE HIS LEG DURING THE SECOND HALF.

    THE BRAZILIAN TEAM IS NOW ON A WORLD TOUR AS PART OF THEIR BUILDING FOR THE WORLD CUP IN MEXICO. THEIR FIRST GAMES IS AGAINST WEST GERMANY ON JUNE 16.
