    THREE ARGENTINE SOCCER PLAYERS WERE RELEASED FROM PRISON ON SATURDAY (NOVEMBER 22) AFTER SERVING 30-DAY SENTENCES FOR FOUL PLAY DURING THE WORLD CUP CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL BETWEEN ESTUDIANTES DE LA PLATA AND A.C. MILAN.

    EARLY IN THE MORNING EDUOARDO MANERO, ONE OF ESTUDIANTES FORWARDS, WALKED OUT OF THE FRONT DOOR OF THE VILLA DEVOTO PRISON AND WAS WHISKED AWAY IN A PRIVATE CAR. BY THE TIME GOALKEEPER ALBERTO POLLETI AND DEFENDER RAMON AGUIREE SUAREZ WERE FREED AT NOON A LARGE CROWD OF SPECTATORS HAD GATHERED AT THE PRISON ENTRANCE.

    THE CARS WHICH CAME TO COLLECT THEM WERE ALLOWED TO ENTER THE PRISON SHORTLY AFTERWARDS THEY LEFT, LEAVING HUGE CLOUDS OF DUST BEHIND THEM AS THEY ACCELERATED AWAY. PART FROM THE PRISON SENTENCES ALL THREE PLAYERS HAVE BEEN SEVERELY DISCIPLINED BY THE FOOTBALL AUTHORITIES. POLETTI, WHO ATTACKED SOME MILAN PLAYERS AT THE END OF THE MATCH -- WHICH ESTUDIANTES LOST -- HAS BEEN BANNED FROM PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL FOR LIFE.

    MANERA AND AGUIREE SUAREZ, BOTH FORMER INTERNATIONALS, WERE BANNED FROM PLAYING FOR ARGENTINA FOR THREE AND FIVE YEARS AND FOR ESTUDIANTES FOR 20 AND 30 GAMES RESPECTIVELY.
