  • Description

    BENFICA, THE PORTUGUESE SOCCER CHAMPIONS, QUALIFIED FOR THE EUROPEAN CUP FINAL WHEN THEY BEAT GYOER VASAS OF HUNGARY IN THE SECOND LEG OF THE SEMI-FINAL BY 4 GOALS TO NIL.

    THE PORTUGUESE TEAM SCORED ALL THE FOUR GOALS IN A 20-MINUTE SPELL IN THE FIRST HALF. IN A BRILLIANT MOOD BENFICA CREATED FINE SCORING OPPORTUNITIES AND CAPITALISED ON THEM. IT STARTED WITH INSIDE-LEFT EUSEBIO COLLECTING A PASS IN THE GYOER VASAS GOALMOUTH AND SENDING IN A HARD DRIVE THAT GAVE THE GOAL-KEEPER NO CHANCE.

    A PASS FROM INSIDE-RIGHT AUGUSTO SENT A WELL-FLIGHTED BALL INTO THE GOAL-MOUTH FOR CENTRE-FORWARD TORRES TO HEAD HOME. TORRES GOT ANOTHER GOAL FOR BENFICA WHEN ONCE MORE AUGUSTO GAVE HIM A PERFECT PASS. THE BALL BOUNCED OFF THE HUNGARIAN GOALKEEPER INTO THE NET. EUSEBIO GOT THE FOURTH GOAL FROM A FREE KICK. HE WAS GOING THROUGH IN SUPERB FASHION ON HIS OWN WHEN A TRIP SENT HIM SPRAWLING.

    BENFICA MEET EITHER LIVERPOOL (ENGLAND) OR THE HOLDERS, INTERNATIONALE (ITALY) IN THE FINAL IN MILAN ON MAY 27. LIVERPOOL BEAT INTERNATIONALE 3 - 1 IN THE FIRST LEG LAST TUESDAY.
