    BRAZIL - CURRENT HOLDERS OF THE WORLD FOOTBALL CUP - MADE AN ALMOST UNHERALDED ARRIVAL IN LONDON THIS AFTERNOON (WEDNESDAY) WHEN THEY CHANGED PLANES ON THEIR JOURNEY FROM MADRID TO GLASGOW.

    ONLY TWO HOURS BEFORE THEIR ARRIVAL, WORLD CUP OFFICIALS AT THEIR LONDON HEADQUARTERS HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE BRAZILIANS PROPOSED STOP-OVER.

    THE SOUTH AMERICAN SQUAD LOOKED STRONG AND FIT AFTER THEIR PREVIOUS EVENING'S 5-2 VICTORY OVER ATLETICO MADRID. HERO OF THE MATCH WAS BRAZIL'S ACE FORWARD PELE WHO HAMMERED THREE GOALS IN THE SECOND HALF TO PUT THE SOUTH AMERICANS - WHO TRAILED 0-1 AT THE END OF THE FIRST HALF - IN COMPLETE CONTROL OF THE GAME.

    AT THE AIRPORT, PELE RELAXED BETWEEN FLIGHTS WHILST THE REST OF THE TEAM BROWSED AROUND THE SHOPS.

    JUST AN HOUR LATER BRAZIL WERE ON THEIR WAY TO GLASGOW FOR A FURTHER WORLD CUP WARM-UP MATCH - THIS TIME AGAINST THE STRONG SCOTTISH TEAM.

    BUT, WITH PELE OBVIOUSLY BACK IN TOP FORM WITH FIVE GOALS FROM TWO GAMES AND THE BOOKMAKERS CURRENTLY QUOTING BRAZIL AS 7-4 FAVOURITES TO RETAIN THE CUP, SCOTLAND APPEAR TO HAVE LITTLE CHANCE ON SATURDAY EVENING AGAINST THE CHAMPIONS.
