  • Description

    WEST GERMANY HELD AN AGGRESSIVE MEXICAN SOCCER ELEVEN TO A 0 - 0 DRAW HERE BEFORE A CROWD OF 70,000 AT THE AZTEC STADIUM IN MEXICO CITY ON SUNDAY. HOWEVER, THE WEST GERMANS, SUFFERING FROM THE HIGH ALTITUDE OF MEXICO CITY THAT IS NOW INFAMOUS AMONG WORLD SPORTSMEN, SHOWED LITTLE OF THEIR MATCH WINNING FORM.

    MEXICO CITY -- THE SCENE OF THE 1968 OLYMPIC GAMES -- WILL ALSO BE THE VENUE OF THE SOCCER WORLD CUP IN 1970. IT GAVE THE WEST GERMANS A CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE THE EFFECTS OF THE ALTITUDE IN PREPARATION FOR THE WORLD CUP. ALTHOUGH NONE OF THE WEST GERMANS CALLED FOR THE OXYGEN THAT WAS ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO THEM, THEY WERE FAR FROM AT THEIR BEST. IT SEEMED THEY WERE NOT EVEN CONSOLED BY THE FACT THAT THE AZTEC STADIUM IS PERHAPS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL IN THE WORLD.

    THE TEAMS
    MEXICO: - MOTA; VANTOLORE; PENA; NUNEX; PEREZ; GONZALEZ; DIAZ; LOPEZ; BORJA; CISNEROS; PADILLA.

    WEST GERMANY: - MAIER; VOGTS; BECHENHAUER; BELLA; PATZKE; OVERATH; LORENZ; DORFEL; ULSAB; HELD GERWIEN.
