  • Description

    SPAIN TURNED ON A BRILLIANT BRAND OF SOCCER BEFORE 60,000 CHEERING FANS IN SEVILLE LAST NIGHT (WEDNESDAY) TO DEFEAT THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND (EIRE) BY FOUR GOALS TO ONE. THEY TURNED THE TABLES ON THE IRISHMEN, WHO WON AN EARLIER MATCH IN DUBLIN, ONE GOAL TO NIL.

    AS SPAIN AND IRELAND ARE THE ONLY TWO TEAMS IN GROUP NINE, A PLAY-OFF IN THE WORLD CUP SERIES WILL BE NECESSARY, PROBABLY IN ROTTERDAM NEXT MONTH.

    IRELAND SWEPT TO THE LEAD IN THE 25TH MINUTE, WHEN McEVOY SCORED. THEY RETAINED THEIR ADVANTAGE FOR THE NEXT 15 MINUTES, BUT SPAIN HAD STARTED TO ATTACK REPEATEDLY.

    IN THE 40TH MINUTE, SPAIN'S INSIDE-LEFT LUIS SUAREZ CENTRED THE BALL THROUGH TO HIS INSIDE-FORWARD PARTNER, PEREDA, WHO LEVELLED THE SCORES.

    THEN SPAIN LAUNCHED A BLISTERING ATTACK AS THE CROWD WENT WILD WITH EXCITEMENT.

    THREE GOALS CAME IN 22 MINUTES OF SOCCER FIREWORKS. PEREDA SCORED TWO MORE, AND LAPETRA CAPPED OFF A POLISHED EXHIBITION BY NOTCHING THE FOURTH.

    THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND PUT UP A TYPICALLY TENACIOUS FIGHT, BUT FOUND SPAIN IN UNBEATABLE FORM. FOLEY AT RIGHT-BACK AND CANTWELL, CENTRE-HALF, WERE NAMED BEST PLAYERS FOR THE LOSERS.

    THE SCORES AGAIN: SPAIN 4 REPUBLIC OF IRELAND 1.
