  • Description

    ENGLAND'S ARSENAL SOCCER TEAM BEAT AJAX AMSTERDAM 3-0 IN LONDON ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT (8 APRIL) IN THE FIRST LEG OF THE EUROPEAN FAIRS CUP SEMI-FINAL.

    ARSENAL DOMINATED THE OPENING PLAY AND AJAX PAID HEAVILY FOR DISCARDING THEIR USUAL ATTACKING STYLE FOR MORE DEFENSIVE TACTICS.

    ARSENAL'S FIRST SCORE CAME WHEN TEENAGER CHARLIE GEORGE NOTCHED UP A GOAL WITH A SHOT FROM 25 YARDS OUT IN THE FIFTEENTH MINUTE OF THE FIRST HALF.

    AJAX, EUROPEAN CUP FINALISTS LAST YEAR, WERE HARD PUT TO STOP ARSENAL SCORING AGAIN BEFORE HALF TIME. THE SECOND GOAL CAME IN THE 78TH MINUTE OF PLAY WHEN JON SAMMELS PUT THE BALL INTO THE NET AFTER CONFUSED PLAY IN THE AJAX GOAL MOUTH. TWO MINUTES LATER CHARLIE GEORGE SCORED HIS SECOND GOAL FROM A PENALTY TO PUT ARSENAL 3-0 UP AT THE END OF THE GAME.

    ARSENAL ARE ATTEMPTING TO BECOME THE THIRD ENGLISH CLUB TO WIN THE FAIRS CUP IN SUCCESSIVE SEASONS FOLLOWING THE SUCCESSES OF LEEDS UNITED TWO YEARS AGO AND NEWCASTLE UNITED LAST SEASON.
