  • Description

    ITALY DEFEATED EAST GERMANY THREE-NIL IN NAPLES YESTERDAY (SATURDAY NOV 22) AND BECAME THE 13TH NATIONS TO WIN A PLACE IN THE WORLD CUP FINALS TO BE PLAYED IN MEXICO CITY NEXT YEAR. THE ITALIANS SCORED ALL THEIR GOALS IN A 29-MINUTE BURST IN THE FIRST HALF.

    THE ITALIANS FINISHED AT THE TOP OF GROUP THREE WITH ONLY ONE POINT DROPPED IN THE QUALIFYING ROUND. THEY NOW JOIN 12 OTHER NATIONS IN FINALS -- RUMANIA, THE SOVIET UNION, SWEDEN, BELGIUM, WEST GERMANY, PERU, BRAZIL, URUGUAY, EL SALVADOR, MOROCCO, AND THE CUP HOLDERS AND HOST NATION, BRITAIN AND MEXICO, WHO QUALIFY AUTOMATICALLY. THE GAMES TO DECIDE WHICH THREE REMAINING NATIONS WILL TAKE PART IN THE FINALS HAVE STILL TO BE DECIDED.

    IN THE NAPLES GAME ITALY TOOK ONLY SIX MINUTES TO GO INTO THE LEAD. CIARUGI AND DOMENGHINI SPLIT THE GERMAN DEFENCE BUT THE GERMANS PARTIALLY BROKE UP THE ATTACK, THE BALL WAS LOOSE AND MAZZOLA SNAPPED UP THE CHANCE.

    ITALY WENT FURTHER AHEAD 18 MINUTES LATER WHEN CENTRE-FORWARD ANGELO DOMENGHINI HIT A SIZZLING GOAL AFTER A PASS FROM OUTSIDE-LEFT LUIGI RIVA.

    ELEVEN MINUTES LATER THESE SAME TWO PLAYERS COMBINED AGAIN WITH RIVA DIVING FULL-LENGTH TO SCORE IN SPECTACULAR STYLE.

    ITALY ALMOST SCORED A FOURTH GOAL...RIVA SLAMMED A PENALTY SHOT TO THE RIGHT OF THE EAST GERMAN GOALKEEPER BUT THE KEEPER BROUGHT OFF A TREMENDOUS SAVE.

    THE FINAL THREE QUALIFYING GAMES WILL BE BETWEEN CZECHOSLOVAKIA AND HUNGARY, BULGARIA AND LUXEMBOURG, AND AUSTRALIA AND RHODESIA.
