Match Report


In a final which earned rave notices from the local fans. United just failed to win this feast of football. The Brazilian side displayed all the magic associated with that nation, but on balance United probably had more chances. America took the lead, however, in the 50th minute, when Gilson made an opening for Luizinho whose swerving shot from 22 yards gave Hamish McAlpine no chance.

With quarter of an hour left, Gilcimar caught United out when his angular cross deflected off a United defender and drifted into the net. Three minutes later John Clark pulled one back with a searing half volley from 12 yards. John Holt was booked after 20 minutes.
