    Background: The Brazilian football club Juventus beat Japan two-nil in Tokyo on Sunday (20th January) to win a three-nation invitation tournament.

    Rumania also sent a club side (FC Constants) to represent them against two Japanese teams - a national side and a selection eleven.

    The Japanese have not played soccer for long. But under the sponsorship of big companies interest is greatly increasing. Japan has only competed at international level for ten years yet their national side managed to finish above the Rumanian club in the league. The Japanese selection eleven was bottom of the table.

    Juventus took just eight minutes to go ahead in the final game against Japan. Japanese goalkeeper, Tatsuhiko Setta, could not hold Maruinho's shot and Juventus centre forward Wanderley fired the rebound into goal.

    The Japanese players showed skill and tenacity. But they could never penetrate the Brazilian club's more experienced defence. Juventus, who won all their three games, scored again five minutes from time when Mario Perz, (Wanderley's second half replacement) struck a low shot inside Setta's right hand post.

    SYNOPSIS: The two-nil game Juventus the tournament. Japan were second, Rumanians FC Constanta third and Japanese selection-eleven fourth. The Juventus captain (in a Japanese Jersey) received the trophy to generous applause.
