Background: The star Brazilian soccer team, Flamengo, easily defeated the Argentine River Plate side 3-0 on October 22 for the Libertadores Cup. The competition is the major series between South American clubs and Brazil was determined to compensate for their surprising defeat earlier in the week in Montevideo against Penarol. Rain fell steadily throughout the first half of the match and it was not until the eleventh minute of the game that Antonio Nunes (Lico), player number 11, scored for the Brazilian side. It soon became clear that neither side was playing at their best and the second goal for the Flamengo club was not until four minutes into the second half. This was when Arthur Antunes (Zico), player number 10, broke through with a classy push for goal, typical of his recent top form. The Argentine side were playing like a defeated team with only four shots for goal after the break, compared with eleven from Flamengo. The third and final goal was taken when de Oliveira Nunes, player number nine, scored for Brazil from his centre-forward position.
