    THE ARGENTINIAN FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION HAS IMPOSED A LIFE BAN ON THE ESTUDIANTES GOALKEEPER AND BANNED TWO OTHER PLAYERS FOR FIVE YEARS AND THREE YEARS FOLLOWING THE WORLD CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP GAME AGAINST A.C. MILAN OF ITALY IN BUENOS AIRES ON WEDNESDAY. THE THREE PLAYERS ARE AT PRESENT IN JAIL ON CHARGES OF ASSAULT.

    ESTUDIANTES WON THE GAME 2-1 BUT LOST THE CHAMPIONSHIP 4-2 ON AGGREGATE. FOR THE ITALIANS, WHO WON THE FIRST LEG AT HOME, IT WAS THE FIRST TIME THEY HAD WON THE TITLE.

    ALL THE GOALS WERE SCORED IN THE FIRST HALF, RIVERA FOR MILAN IN THE 30TH MINUTE, AND CONIGLIARO AND AGUIRRE SUAREZ FOR ESTUDIANTES WITHIN A MINUTE SHORTLY BEFORE HALF TIME.

    IN THE SECOND HALF THE GAME DETERIORATED INTO A SERIES OF UGLY INCIDENTS. TWO ESTUDIANTES PLAYERS WERE ORDERED OFF, AGUIRRE SUAREZ AND MANERO. MILAN LOST TWO MEN, BOTH CARRIED OFF INJURED. AT ONE STAGE, POLICE WENT ONTO THE FIELD TO BREAK UP A CLASH.

    AFTER THE GAME, PRESIDENT JUAN CARLOS ONGANIA BLASTED WHAT HE CALLED THE SHAMEFUL CONDUCT OF THE ESTUDIANTES PLAYERS. HE SAID HE WAS SHOCKED BY A LAMENTABLE SPECTACLE WHICH BREACHED MOST NORMS OF SPORTING ETHICS.

    THE FOLLOWING DAY, THE POLICE ARRESTED AGUIRRE SUAREZ, MANERO AND GOALKEEPER ALBERTO JOSE POLETTI, WHO KICKED A MILAN PLAYER. POLETTI AND MANERO WERE SENT TO JAIL FOR 30 DAYS AND AGUIRRE SUAREZ WAS HELD IN DETENTION.

    ON FRIDAY, THE ARGENTINE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCED THAT POLETTI HAD BEEN BANNED FOR LIFE. AGUIRRE SUAREZ WAS BANNED FROM PLAYING IN 30 LOCAL MATCHES AND ALL INTERNATIONALS FOR FIVE YEARS WHILE MANERO IS OUT FOR 20 LOCAL MATCHES AND THREE YEARS INTERNATIONALS.
