  • Description

    THE FRENCH NATIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM LAST NIGHT (WEDNESDAY) DEFEATED SPANISH CHAMPIONS, REAL MADRID, BY FIVE GOALS TO THREE IN PARIS. THE SCORE AT HALF-TIME WAS 3 - 1. REVELLI OF FRANCE WAS THE MAN OF THE MATCH, SCORING THREE OF FRANCE'S GOALS.

    THIS WAS FRANCE'S LAST MATCH OF A DISASTROUS 1968-69 SEASON. THEIR WIN MAY HELP THEM TO FORGET THEIR LAST MATCH, WHICH ENDED IN A CRUSHING 5 - 0 DEFEAT BY ENGLAND AT WEMBLEY. THOUGH A FRIENDLY MATCH IT IS PART OF FRANCE'S PREPARATIONS FOR THE PRELIMINARY ROUNDS OF THE WORLD CUP AT THE START OF NEXT SEASON. FRANCE HAS ALREADY LOST AT HOME TO NORWAY IN ONE OF THESE MATCHES, AND THE TEAM NEEDED THIS VICTORY TO BOOST ITS MORALE.

    FRANCE'S GOALS WERE SCORED BY REVELLI (3), LOUBET AND BRAS. SHORTLY BEFORE HALF-TIME THEY WERE LEADING 3 - 0, BUT VELASQUEZ SCORED FOR THE SPANISH TEAM. THE VETERAN GENTO SCORED READ MADRID'S OTHER TWO.
