  • Description

    ITALY AND YUGOSLAVIA MUST REPLAY THEIR EUROPEAN CUP FINAL AFTER A ONE-ALL DRAW AT ROME'S OLYMPIC STADIUM ON SATURDAY (JUNE 8). THE REPLAY, ALSO AT THE OLYMPIC STADIUM, WILL BE ON MONDAY (JUNE 10).

    ITALY, PLAYING BEFORE A HOME CROWD OF 100,000 WERE A GOAL DOWN AFTER 37 MINUTES. THE YUGOSLAV ACE GOAL SCORER DRAGON DZAJIC, WHO'S ONLY 21, NETTED FROM A CENTRE BY TRIVIC.

    IT WAS A RUGGED, TOUGH GAME AND ITALY LEFT IT UNTIL THE 80TH MINUTE BEFORE EQUALISING. THEIR GOAL CAME FROM A FREE KICK. DOMENGHINI BREACHED A WALL OF YUGOSLAV PLAYERS WITH A MIGHTY KICK. THE GOALKEEPER, PENTELIC, WAS CAUGHT OUT OF POSITION AND THE BALL WHIPPED INTO THE NET.

    THE GAME WENT ON THE EXTRA TIME BUT NEITHER SIDE COULD MAKE THE FINAL DECISIVE AND MIDWAY THROUGH THE EXTRA 30 MINUTES THE REFEREE CALLED BOTH CAPTAINS TOGETHER TO WARN THEM ABOUT THE STANDARD OF PLAY WHICH HAD BECOME FOUL-RIDDEN AND DANGEROUS.
