CITY.................... PHONE 13 and Under FREE PASS PARENTS MEXICO CITY (AP) Brazil and Italy, exhausted by two nerve-jangling semi-finals i n World Cup competition, rested today before going into a battle Sunday which will determine the best soccer team in the world. Brazil used its goal-scoring magic on a bruising Uruguayan defence to win 3-1 Wednesday in Gaudalajara. Italy, relaxing its guard in the dying minutes of the game as it was leading l-o, had lo fight back to top West Germany 4-3 in a scoring duel during extra time. Even the backs of both teams scored in the dramatic fi- nale. West Germany, which already has played two extra times in this World Cup, will meet Uru- guay in a consolation match Saturday in Mexico City. The game will determine third and fourth place. Brazil and Italy had been among the top favorites before the three week-long World Cup began. But Italy's weak start, by scoring only one goal in three matches, sent its stock falling. In tlie quarter-finals, how- ever, its top scorer Luigi Riva, broke a jinx and the team ousted Mexico 4-1. INJECTS NEW BLOOD Against West Germany, Riva scored again. He was helped once more by Gianni Rivera, the elegant midfielder whore Italian coach Ferrucicio Valcar- eggi likes to send in after half- time to inject new blood into the team. Rivera scored too and so did Robert Boninsegna, a crafty striker who was added to the team at the last minute because of an ill player. Tlie most unusual goal was that of right back Tarcision Burgninch, one of the keys to the Italian tightest in the tournament. Burgninch came racing in lo kick a slow pass from Rivera in the goalmouth to put the Ital- ians back into the game at 2-2. Scoring for the hard-fighting Germans were Karl-Heinz Schnellinger, and Gerhard Mueller with two. Italy's defence is probably the toughest in the world. Its goalie Enrico Albertosi has only con- ceded four goals in the tourna- ment so far. Its backs, Burninch and Fachetti, are among the classiest shot-stoppers in Eu- rope. But the best defence will be facing the best offence.. The Brazilians have scored 15 goals in five games so far. Only West Germany, with 16, has done better. Brazil docs not care too much about a light defence. It prefers to outscorc its rivals. That tactic nearly failed with U r u g u a y, another defensive team, and perennial rival. The Uruguayans opened the score with Cubilla counting, and (hen folded back into a defen- sive pattern. However in the last minutes of Ihe first half, Jair dribbled pasl three opponents on the right wing, and fooled the goalie to bring the score even.

Bryan Maxwell gained the win while .lerry Areshenko took the loss. Maxwell also led in tlie hitting column as he strok- ed out two doubles and the same amount of singles. Larry Bridgewater helped with two doubles and Blair House chip- ped in with three singles for the winners. Brian Rabinson found the range for the Giants as he struck out no less than 16 Player, Trevino Favored CHASKA, Minn. (AP) Lee Trevino says he and South Afri- can Gary Player are the men to beat in the United Steles open golf championship which gets under way today with a field of 136 professionals and 14 ama- teurs. Trevino, from El Paso, Tex., and Player have played more practice rounds in preparation for the tournament than any other golfer in the field, which includes Canadians George Knudson, Al Balding and Bob Panasiuk. While most other members of me tour stopped in Chicago for the Western Open, Player and Trevino were getting accus- tomed to the Hazeltone course, a par-72, layout. Player arrived nine days ago, Trevino eight. "This is going to be ray said Trevino, leading money winner this year. "I'm really set on winning and if I can get by Player, I should do it. I've been here more than a week and I know this course." Trevino's rise to golfing star- dom started when he won the 1968. U.S. Open. He failed to make the cut in the 1969 Open at Houston because of a knee in- jury. batters to defeat the Braves 8-1 in Norcrest Little League ac- tion. Earl Ingarfield struck out 12 batters, but still had to take the defeat. Robinson also had a good night at the plate as he went three for three, belting out two doubles and a single. Both Dean Asplund and Gor- don Keith aided by scattering two singles apiece. Eddie Le- ong smashed a home run for (he winners. Robert Poole had himself a good night on the mound last night as he chucked the third strike past 15 Twin batters pac- ing the White Sox to victory. Brian Gaskell absorbed the loss. j The Angels, with Harvie Pocza pitching, belted the In- dians 20-8 in Lakeside Little League action Wednesday. Greg Maxwell was the losing pitcher. Pocza aided his own cause with a home run and a single while Mike Sheen stroked a double and two singles. Darrel Osmond and Terry McNeely had two hits each' for the In- dians. Later, midfielders Rivelllno and Clodouldo added their con- tribution. U r u g u a y a n players were warned repeatedly for tackling soccer king Pcle and his team- mates inside and outside tho goal area. In many cases, tho referee overlooked borderline penally calls and waved the players on. Again, Pole, despite tho tum- bles and tackling he took, was one of the most outstanding players on the field. He tried another one of those rare shots from nearly midfield, and al- most beat Uruguayan goalie Mazurcic Ewicz. Brazil, twice winner of the World Cup is given an edge in Sunday's final at Mexico City's Aztec stadium. The team is a crowd favorite. MATCH 1966 TOTAL Thanks lo the Italy-West Ger- many game, this year's compe- tition in 30 matches has already equalled lira 1906 total of 89 goals scored in 32 matches. The all-limo record was 135 goals in 1951 Commenting on Wednesday's victory, Italian coach Valcar- eggi said after the match he had lived "the most emotional and most beautiful 120 minutes" of his life. "The whole team was just Valcareggi said. can't single out any' of the play- ers. I can only praise them for all the energy and the deter- mination they put in today's game. This was the key to our victory." Valcareggi, however, said he wanted to set aside feeii.ngs of today's game to start thinking of Ihe match with Brazil. "I believe three full days of rest and four nights of sleep will be more than enough for my boys to recoup their energies for he said. And in Guadalajara, Brazilian coach Mario Zagalo said he never lost faith that his team would qualify for the finals of the World Cup. "I knew we would find it very difficult to defeat Item (Uru- guay) when they scored. I think if we had not tied in the first half, tilings would have really been complicated. But when we tied, I was quite certain of our victory because they were very tired."
