Yugoslavia were beaten 2-0 by Brazil in Porto Alegre at the weekend, their first match back in international football since being banned two years ago. Viola scored the first with a header and Branco added the second with a trademark free-kick.

Rashidi Yekini, the 31-year-old Nigerian World Cup player, is to join the Spanish club Gijon from the Greek side Olympiakos in a deal believed to be worth around £350,000.
