COMMENTATOR: "Bruce Wilson over there. He usually takes most of these free kicks. Wilson swings it across. What a beautiful goal....a free kick from Bruce Wilson....high to the head of Buzz Parson who put it past the goalie. Canada leads one-nil. This is a great free kick. He hits it short to near Post...great run by Buzz Parsons...flicks it into the far corner....fabulous goal...the Mexican defence expecting a high ball from the far post... instead, he hit a low one... a great run by Buzz Parsons.... a super goal. That's what I would like to see. They are changing it now. They are hitting nigh balls, they are hitting low balls and this is what they got to do."
