    BRAZIL CELEBRATED THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF THEIR FIRST VICTORY IN THE WORLD SOCCER CUP WITH A HARD-FOUGHT 2-1 WIN OVER A "REST OF THE WORLD" SELECTION IN RIO DE JANEIRO ON WEDNESDAY EVENING (NOVEMBER 6)
    THE SULTRY SUMMER HEAT, AND LACK OF COLLECTIVE TRAINING BY THEIR MAINLY EUROPEAN OPPONENTS, PROVED AN ADVANTAGE TO THE MORE COORDINATED LOCALS SIDE. BUT DESPITE THEIR EXHAUSTION IN THE BLISTERING HEAT, THE TEAM CHOSEN BY THE INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL FEDERATION (FIFA) HELD BRAZIL TO HALF-TIME SCORE OF 1-1 UNTIL THE CLOSING SECONDS OF THE MATCH.

    THE LAST MINUTE GOAL, FROM TOSTAO, HAD THE 93,000 CROWD ROARING WITH DELIGHT IN THE GIANT MARACANA STADIUM.

    NEITHER SIDE COULD FIND THE SOLUTION TO FINAL PENETRATION OF TOUGH DEFENCES. BRAZIL'S GREAT FORWARD -- PELE -- W S TOTALLY ECLIPSED THROUGH CLEAN AND EFFICIENT MARKING BY THE WEST GERMAN PLAYER SCHULTZ.

    BRAZIL'S OTHER GOAL WAS SCORED AFTER ONLY THREE MINUTES BY RIVELINO, AND THE EQUALISER CAME IN THE 34TH MINUTE FROM FLORIAN ALBERT OF HUNGARY FOLLOWING A LEFT-WING RUN BY YUGOSLAVIA'S DJAZIC.
