Background: The South American Champions, Penarol of Uruguay, defeated the European Cup holders, Aston Villa (England) by two goals to nil in the final of the World Soccer Club Championship in Tokyo (12/12). Aston Villa, who have had a disappointing start to their English League season, had several chances but their forwards failed to convert them into goals. Penarol opened the scoring in the twenty-seventh minute, when they were awarded a free kick just outside the penalty area. Jair Concalves hit a hard shot, which Aston Villa goalkeeper, Jimmy Rimmer saved, but could not hold, and the goal was given. The crowd of 62,000 at the National Stadium included hundreds of supporters from both clubs. Although Aston Villa began the second half in attacking mood, it was Penarol who took their chance again, when Walkir Silva made a lightening break in the sixty-seventh minute to give his club an unassailable two goal lead. Again, the Villa goalkeeper, failed to hold the shot, and Silva had no problem in following the ball past the prostrate Rimmer into an open goal. The trophy was presented to the Penarol captain after the game, and Aston Villa, who had travelled 12,000 miles for the match, had suffered the same fate as previous English club sides involved in this competition.
