Partido de Montevideo casi no se juega

Subject

Celtic squad hesitates playing the third and decisive match without assurances of its safety in Montevideo

Description

This report mostly focuses on the Celtic reaction to the injury to Ronnie Simpson, not so much on the physical aspects of the match. For their part, Argentine journalists immediately shift to the third game, while Foreign press accounts, such as “A football afternoon of vandals”, are decidedly negative. Celtic also threatened to walk out of the championship's decisive third game without assurances of players' safety and a fair officiating in Montevideo. European journalists describe Argentine players as arrogant, presumptuous, and exhibitionists; Celtic play honorably. England journalists labeled Argentine fans as “a violent and battling crowd”, while the French press described the game as a scandalous beginning to the championship.
