PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, Jan 27 (Reuter)

BRAZIL'S under-20 football team was surprisingly beaten 3-2 by Trinidad's national team in a rough match at the Queen's Park Oval here yesterday.

Trinidad had built up a 2-1 lead when tempers flared and players aimed blows at each other. The 6,000 crowd were angry with the young Brazilians' rough tactics.

At the end of the game police gave the Brazilians protection as they walked off the field.

The victory was revenge for the Trinidad team, who were beaten 5-0 by the Brazilians on Saturday.

A deciding match will be held tomorrow at Skinner Park, San Fernando, South Trinidad.

Archibald (45th) Corneal (56th penalty and 59th) scored for Trinidad and Freitas (15th) and Edu (23rd) scored for the Brazillians.
