  • Description

    BRAZIL, THE WORLD CUP HOLDERS, SHOWED ONLY OCCASIONAL FLASHES OF BRILLIANCE IN BEATING THE MODERATE SWEDISH CLUB, A.I.K., IN STOCKHOLM YESTERDAY (MONDAY). BRAZIL WON 4-2.

    WITH THEIR OPENING MATCH IN THE WORLD CUP FINALS AGAINST BULGARIA IN LIVERPOOL ONLY SEVEN DAYS AWAY, THE PERFORMANCE WAS YET ANOTHER DISAPPOINTMENT FOR THE BRAZILIANS.

    LAST WEEK, BRAZIL HAD TO STRUGGLE TO BEAT SWEDEN 3-2 AND IN AN EARLIER WARM-UP MATCH THEY DREW 1-1 AGAINST SCOTLAND.

    BUT IN STOCKHOLM YESTERDAY, THE BRAZILIANS GOT OFF TO A STORMING START AND SCORED TWO GOALS IN THE FIRST FOUR MINUTES.

    GARRINCHA PUT THE BALL INTO THE NET IN THE SECOND MINUTES AFTER DRIBBLING THROUGH THE SWEDISH DEFENCE AND A MINUTE LATER PELE GAVEA DAZZLING SOLO DISPLAY OF HOW TO THROW A DEFENCE INTO UTTER CONFUSION.

    BUT THE SWEDES CONTINUED TO PRESS HARD AND IN THE 35TH MINUTE REDUCED THE SCORE TO 2-1 WITH A SHOT FROM CARLSSON. HAMRIN LATER GAVE SWEDEN THE EQUALISER.

    LIMA SCORED BRAZIL'S THIRD GOAL IN THE 62ND MINUTE AND PELE CLINCHED VICTORY FROM A CORNER JUST BEFORE THE WHISTLE.
