  • Description

    ITALY SWEPT TO A 6-1 VICTORY OVER BULGARIA IN A WORLD CUP PREPARATORY MATCH IN BOLOGNA. A CROWD OF 25,000 PERSONS SAW AN ITALIAN SIDE IN TOP FORM.

    THE BULGARIANS WERE STRONG AND FORCEFUL, BUT THEY COULD NOT MATCH THE SPEED AND FINESSES OF THE ITALIANS, WHOSE DEFENSE EASILY DEALT WITH THE LONG, PASSING GAME OF THE OPPONENTS.

    THE ITALIAN GOALKEEPER, ALBERTOSI, WAS IN GOOD FORM EARLY IN THE GAME WHEN THE BULGARIANS STARTED WITH A RUSH. HE MADE A NUMBER OF GOOD SAVES BEFORE THE ITALIAN ATTACK GOT GOING. BULGARIA'S GOAL WAS SCORED AFTER THE START OF THE SECOND HALF.

    ITALY PLAY IN GROUP FOUR OF THE WORLD CUP, WITH THE SOVIET UNION, NORTH KOREA AND CHILE. BULGARIA ARE IN GROUP THREE WITH BRAZIL, HUNGARY AND PORTUGAL.
