Yugoslavia v Brazil (Match Report in A Batalha)
The front page of Brazilian newspaper, A Batalha, 15 July 1930.
This is the match report for the Yugoslavia versus Brazil game played on the 14th July 1930, recording the Brazilians shock 2-1 defeat to the Europeans. An interesting photograph that shows the multitude of Brazilian football fans gathering at the newspaper offices of the various Rio daily publications. Many of the newspapers would project speakers from their balconies informing the locals of up-to-date cablegrams coming in from Montevideo.
