    Brazil supposed to play against Poland on this day, but shortly before Poles pulled out for some reason. Meanwhile, Ajax were having a tour in Argentina and they were invited to fill the gap. Socrates is having a splendid performance in the firs half (he is substituted on 63rd minute because of a mini-injury). Cor Brom (Ajax coach) would tell of him after the match: "I didn't expect the number nine to be so good. He looks clumsy because he is so tall, but the truth is he is a very useful player for his side, he lays the ball off well and moves around the pitch perfectly." Interesting fact about this match: Zico scored last two goals making 5:0, but Morumbi scoreboard would show only 3:0 till the end. Zico would say later: "I don't know why those responsible for the stadium didn't have the brilliant idea of counting my goals for Ajax." Commentary in this video is in Spanish, but sometimes commentator suddenly switches into English. This happens mostly when Brazil scores or plays beautifully. Have no idea for this :)
