  • Description

    A CROWD OF SIXTY-THOUSAND CHEERED THE T.P. ENGLEBERT-MAZEMBE SOCCER TEAM TO VICTORY RECENTLY IN THEIR MATCH AT KINSHASA AGAINST ABIDJAN'S 'AFRICA SPORTS' TEAM.

    THE MATCH WAS ONE OF THE HEATS FOR THE QUARTER-FINALS OF THE AFRICAN CUP-WINNERS' CUP.

    ENGLEBERT, ALREADY TWICE CHAMPIONS OF AFRICA, SHOWED LESS THAN THEIR NORMAL DRIVE, BUT WERE STILL IN COMMAND FOR MOST OF THE GAME.

    A SURPRISE GOAL FROM ABIDJAN, TEN MINUTES FROM THE FINAL WHISTLE, BROUGHT DRAMA TO A GOAL-LESS MATCH. ENGLEBERT ROSE TO THE CHALLENGE, AND EQUALISED FIVE MINUTES LATER. WITH ONLY THREE MINUTES OF PLAY REMAINING, THEY PUT IN THE WINNING GOAL.

    AFTER THE MATCH, THE PLAYERS WERE GUESTS AT A RECEPTION IN PRESIDENT MOBUTU'S OFFICIALS RESIDENCE, MOUNT STANLEY. THE MINISTER OF YOUTH AND SPORTS, MR UMBA-DI-LUTETE, AND OTHER OFFICIALS WERE PRESENT AS THE PRESIDENT CONGRATULATED THE NATIONAL SOCCER STARS. THEY, TOO, SAID MR MOBUTU, WERE SERVING THE INTERESTS OF THE NATION.
