  • Description

    THE CRACK BRAZILIAN SOCCER TEAM -- SANTOS -- DEFEATED MEXICO IN MEXICO CITY LAST SUNDAY. THE FINAL SCORE WAS SANTOS, 2; MEXICO, NIL.

    ABOUT 105,000 PEOPLE CRAMMED INTO THE MAIN FOOTBALL STADIUM IN MEXICO CITY FOR THE BIG MATCH, AND THE PROMOTERS REPORTED THAT IT WAS A SELL-OUT. CARS JAMMED THE AVENUES AND STREETS LEADING TO THE STADIUM.

    SANTOS -- IN THE YELLOW SHIRTS -- WAS ON TOP FROM THE KICK-OFF, AND ONLY SOLID DEFENSIVE PLAY BY THE MEXICANS KEPT THE SCORE DOWN TO TWO-NIL. THE MEXICAN GOALKEEPER MADE SOME FINE SAVES.

    IN SOME STAGES THE MATCH WAS MARRED WITH FOULS, BUT THE CROWD WAS KEPT ON ITS TOES AS SANTOS ATTACKED REPEATEDLY MEXICO TOO, HAD ITS SHARED OF THE ATTACK BUT DID NOT LOOK DANGEROUS. BY COMPARISON, SANTOS WAS A THREAT EACH TIME A BRAZILIAN GOT THE BALL UNDER CONTROL.
