  • Description

    ARSENAL, THE LONDON SOCCER CLUB, SWEPT INTO THE LAST 16 OF THE EUROPEAN FAIRS' CUP FOR THE FIRST TIME TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY). THEY SCORED A CONVINCING 3-0 VICTORY OVER SPORTING LISBON ON THEIR HOME GROUND AT HIGHBURY, AFTER THE FIRST ENCOUNTER IN PORTUGAL HAD ENDED IN A GOALLESS DRAW.

    THE HARD RUNNING ARSENAL FORWARDS SOON HAD THE SPORTING DEFENCE IN TROUBLE. AND AFTER TWO CONSECUTIVE CORNERS, THE LONDON SIDE'S PERSISTENCE SEEMED TO HAVE PAID OFF WHEN SAMMELS HAD THE BALL IN THE NET -- BUT HIS SHOT WAS DISALLOWED.

    BUT THERE WAS NO MISTAKE ABOUT THE FIRST ARESENAL GOAL AFTER 20 MINUTES. THE SPORTING DEFENCE FAILED TO CUT OUT A MCNAB CENTRE AND THE EBULLIENT RADFORD HOOKED IN A SHOT WHICH DAMAS COULD ONLY HELP INTO THE NET.

    SPORTING -- WITH SEVERAL INTERNATIONALS IN THEIR SIDE -- STORMED BACK, AND A GREAT SHOT BY MARINHO HIT THE ARSENAL BAR A COUPLE OF MINUTES LATER.

    BUT ARSENAL WERE NOT TO BE DENIED, AND THEY WENT FURTHER AHEAD AFTER 40 MINUTES THROUGH A SUPERB GRAHAM HEADER FROM A ROBERTSON CROSS.

    ARSENAL CONTINUED TO DOMINATE DURING THE SECOND HALF. AND GRAHAM SNATCHED HIS SECOND GOAL BY DEFLECTING A MCNAB DRIVE INTO THE NET.
