SOCCER : Mexico Wins Americas' Cup, Defeating El Salvador 2-0

From Associated Press

Club America of Mexico defeated Alianza of El Salvador, 2-0, Sunday night to win the Camel Cup of the Americas soccer tournament at the Coliseum.

Guillermo Naranjo scored in the 21st minute, taking a pass from Edu on the left side of the field and kicking the ball to the right of goalie William Santillana.

In the 57th minute, Marco Antonio Figueroa worked the middle of the attack and passed to Alejandro Dominguez, who beat the diving Santillana.

In the first game, Municipal of Guatemala and Alianza of Lima, Peru, played to a 1-1 tie.

Dutch soccer fans hurled a small bomb from a moving train and seriously injured a bystander, but police in Driebergen, Netherlands, said today they released 48 detainees without knowing who threw the device.

The 55-year-old victim was being treated in a hospital for wounds to both legs after the Sunday incident, according to police spokesman Jan van Haaften.

The man was waiting on the platform of this city's railway station when a train carrying several dozen Feyenoord Rotterdam fans passed by, Van Haaften said. He said one of the fans tossed the bomb out of a train window for no apparent reason.

A group of 48 Feyenoord fans was taken off the train, but Van Haaften said police were unable to determine who threw the bomb.
