  • Description

    ITALY BEAT RUMANIA 3 - 1 IN A GROUP SIX EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP SOCCER CUP TIE YESTERDAY (SATURDAY). THE RUMANIANS SCORED THEIR GOAL IN THE FIRST SEVEN MINUTES OF PLAY AND THE ITALIANS AT FIRST LOOKED IN POOR FORM.

    THE FAST-MOVING RUMANIANS ATTACKED STRONGLY FROM THE START AND ROCKED THE ITALIANS WITH THE FIRST GOALS. SCORED BY INSIDE-LEFT DORBIN FROM THE EDGE OF THE PENALTY AREA.

    ITALY, FIELDING SEVEN INTERNAZIONALE MILAN PLAYERS, LOOKED AS THOUGH THEY WERE SINKING BACK INTO THEIR POOR WORLD CUP FORM AS THEY STRUGGLED TO GET AN EQUALISER. IT DIDN'T COME UNTIL AFTER 30 MINUTES WHEN INSIDE-RIGHT MAZZOLA SCORED. THE BALL WAS ACTUALLY STOPPED BY GOALKEEPER DATCU BUT IT LEFT HIS HANDS TO BOUNCE OVER THE LINE.

    THIS GOAL CHANGED THE FACE OF THE GAME. ENCOURAGED, THE ITALIANS ATTACKED AND HAD THEIR SECOND GOALS TWO MINUTES BEFORE HALF TIME. IT WAS SCORED BY CENTRE FORWARD DE PAOLI.

    IN THE SECOND HALF THE STANDARD OF PLAY DETERIORATED. THE ONLY BRIGHT SPOT WAS ITALY'S THIRD GOAL, SCORED BY MAZZOLA IN THE 67TH MINUTE. HE LOBBED THE BALL OVER GOALKEEPER DATCU'S HEAD AS THE RUMANIAN GOALKEEPER RAN OUT TO INTERCEPT A THROUGH BALL.

    A CROWD OF ABOUT 70,000 WATCHED THE MATCH WHICH WAS THE SECOND PLAYED IN GROUP SIX. IN THE PREVIOUS MATCH RUMANIA BEAT SWITZERLAND 4-2. CYPRUS IS THE OTHER COUNTRY IN THE GROUP.
