    Background: GENEVA, SWITZERLAND/PORI, FINLAND

    Spain beat Switzerland 4-0 in a friendly soccer international held in Geneva on May 26. Santillana scored the Spanish team's first goal, heading the ball into the net in the 13th minute. With two more scores--by Gallego in the 26th minute and Rincon in the 36th minute--Spain was leading 3-0 at half-time. The match was part of Spain's preparations for next month's European championships, to be held in France. No doubt the Spanish team found their result in Switzerland a fortuitous sign for the next hurdle.

    On the same day, in the Finnish town of Pori, Northern Ireland suffered a heavy blow in the World Cup qualifying series. In the very first international game between the two countries, Finland opened the European Group Three qualifying series with a 1-0 win. The half-time score was goalless. The result was good news for the group's three other contestants who have yet to play-- Romania, due to play on September 12, England on October 17, and Turkey on October 31. Northern Ireland failed to use any scoring opportunity, while Finland made good on one of three chances. After a fast throw-in, forward Ari Valvee found himself in a position to shoot, and scored in the 54th minute--his sixth goal in 19 internationals. Two minutes before the end, Hannu Turunen shot on a pass-back from Valvee, but Northern Ireland's defender Jimmy Nicholl was able to clear on the goal-line.
