I covered three soccer matches for The Home News played by Pele and his Santos of Brazil team at old Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City against three Italian teams.

The first match was Santos against Bologna on June 27, 1971 which ended with a 1-1 deadlock.

In this match I was on the field and took pictures which may be seen below.

The second match was held on June 25, 1972 with Santos against Catantzaro with the Brazilian squad scoring a 7-1 rout.

And the third match was held on May 25, 1973 with Santos blanking Lazio 3-0.

Also on this page my reports for The Home News about the matches.
