  • Description

    WILD SCENES OF ENTHUSIASM GREETED THE SECOND MAJOR VICTORY WITHIN A WEEK OF THE ARGENTINIAN FOOTBALL CLUB -- ESTUDIANTES DE LA PLATA. ON APRIL 27 THEY BEAT RACING CLUB OF ARGENTINA, AND LAST THURSDAY (MAY 2) THEY SNATCHED A FANTASTIC WIN FROM THE CLUTCHES OF THE BRAZILIAN SIDE, PALMEIRAS.

    PALMEIRAS WERE LEADING WITH A FIRST-HALF GOAL -- HOTLY DISPUTED AS OFFSIDE BY ESTUDIANTES, AND THINGS LOOKED GRIM FOR THE ARGENTINIAN CHAMPIONS AS TIME TICKED AWAY.

    PALMEIRAS HELD THE 31ST MINUTE LEAD GIVEN TO THEM BY WINGER SERVILLO, UNTIL THE 83RD MINUTE WHEN ESTUDIANTES' STAR CENTRE FORWARD VERON, WHO HAD DISTINGUISHED HIMSELF IN THE RACING MATCH, EQUALISED WITH A BRILLIANT INDIVIDUAL EFFORT.

    ESTUDIANTES RENEWED THEIR EFFORTS, AND A FEW MINUTES LATER -- TO A GREAT ROAR FROM THE EXCITED CROWD -- THEY TOOK THE LEAD WITH A GOAL BY CONIGLIARO.

    BOTH ESTUDIANTES GOALS CAME WITHIN THE LAST SEVEN MINUTES OF THE MATCH, AND THEIR FANS COULD SCARCELY CONTAIN THEIR JOY. CELEBRATIONS WERE HELD IN THE STREETS AS THE FANS FOUGHT THEIR WAY OUT OF THE PACKED STADIUM.

    THE MATCH WAS THE FIRST LEG OF THE SOUTH AMERICAN FOOTBALL CLUBS' CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL. THE WINNER WILL MEET THE NEW EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS, YET TO BE DECIDED, TO COMPETE FOR THE TITLE OF WORLD CLUBS' CHAMPIONS.
