  • Description

    RHODESIA AND MALAWI DREW 1-1 IN AN INTERNATIONAL SOCCER MATCH PLAYED IN THE GWANJARA STADIUM IN SALISBURY ON SUNDAY. BOTH SIDES FIELDED MULTIRACIAL TEAMS.

    PLAYED IN BLINDING HEAT, THE GAME WAS A ROUGH, TOUGH ONE IN WHICH RHODESIA'S CENTRE FORWARD BOBBY CHALMERS HAD HIS NAME TAKEN FOR ROUGH PLAY -- AND THEN SCORED THE GOAL WHICH EQUALISED THE SCORES.

    RHODESIA OPENED THE GAME WITH ALMOST CONSTANT PRESSURE ON THE MALAWI GOALMOUTH AND IT WAS ONLY GALLANT WORK BY MALAWI'S BIG CENTRE HALF MOYO WHICH PREVENTED MANY ATTACKS FROM COMING CLOSER TO SUCCESS. BUT THEN, IN THE 20TH MINUTES, MALAWI SURPRISINGLY WENT AHEAD.

    MALAWI WINGER ROY COOK COLLECTED A LONG CLEARANCE AND HEADED FOR THE RHODESIAN PENALTY AREA AND WAS BROUGHT DOWN BY FULL-BACK MUTUMA. MALAWI PENALTY TAKER YASIN OSMAN SCORED WITH A TREMENDOUS SHOT HIGH INTO THE NET.

    AT HALF-TIME, THE MALAWI TEAM, WEAKENED AS IT HAD BEEN BY PRE-MATCH INJURIES, HELD ONTO THEIR SLENDER LEAD.

    EARLY IN THE SECOND HALF, CHALMERS HAD HIS NAME TAKEN AND THERE FOLLOWED A SERIES OF FREE KICKS FOR WILD PLAY AGAINST BOTH SIDES. BUT IN THE 56TH MINUTE, CHALMERS FINALLY SHOOK OFF MOYO TO SIDE-FOOT A CROSS FROM RHODESIAN WING-HALF JAMES NXUMALO INTO THE NET.

    BOTH SIDES FIELDED SUBSTITUTES IN AN EFFORT TO BRING A RESULT, BUT THE GAME ENDED WITH THE SIDES LEVEL.
