  • Description

    Chile beat Peru 2-1 at Montivideo on Sunday (5 August) to qualify for a play-off with the Soviet Union for a place in the 1974 Would Soccer Cup Finals in Munich.

    The two teams had defeated each other 2-0 in previous encounters, so they had to meet on neutral territory to decide who was to go forward.

    Chile played the more decisive football, but Peru opened the scoring. A defensive error put Peru's number 18 Bailetti, clear and he made no mistake with the shot. Chile struck back on the stroke of half-time. Chile's Valdes curled a free-kick around Peru's defensive wall and found the back of the net.

    The teams turned round level. But twelve minutes into the second-half Chile's number 20 Reinoso scored what proved to be the decisive goal.

    SYNOPSIS: Peru, in white, playing left to right, kicked off against Chile at Montivideo in Uruguay last Sunday. This was their third World Cup meeting in the present series.

    In their two previous encounters both teams scored 2-0 victories. This game was to settle who was to go forward to the play-off with the Soviet Union for a place in the finals at Munich in 197???
    With three minutes of the first half remaining, a defensive error by Chile put Peru's Bailetti clear.

    But Chile, who'd been playing the more incisive football, continued to come forward.

    A free-kick just outside the area was cleverly bent round the Peruvian wall by Chile's Valdes.

    The scores were level at half time but twelve minutes after play had resumed Chile scored the winners through their number 20 Reinoso.
