PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, Oct. 26 (Reuters):

The visiting Nautico football team from Brazil this evening gave Trinidad an unforgettable lesson in methodical field craft as they scored a 3-1 victory over the host team in a goodwill match at the Queen's Park Oval here.

Zezinho scored for Nautico in the 14th minute and Eloi found the nets in the 24th minute to put the visitors two-up.

The Trinidad squad came to life in the second half, after making some substitutions, and hit back with a fine goal in the 49th minute through their captain Buggy Haynes who made no mistake with a perfect centre from Steve David.

But this was not good enough to hold back the visitors who forged further ahead, with a powerful shot by Eloi from outside the box nearing the end of the game.
