Argentina became the first major soccer nation to visit Croatia, playing the host team to a 0-0 tie at Zagreb in the Argentines' last game before the World Cup.

About 38,000, including Croatian President Franjo Tudjman, watched in the rain as both teams squandered scoring chances.

At Brussels, Josip Weber scored five goals in his international debut, leading Belgium to a 9-0 rout of Zambia, the nation's largest margin of victory since it began playing internationally in 1904.

At Pomona, N.J., Saudi Arabia took a 3-0 lead in goals by Majed Mohammed in the ninth minute, Saeed Al Owairan in the 20th minute and Fahd Al bishi in the 29th minute, then held on to defeat Trinidad and Tobago, 3-2. Angus Eve scored twice for the losers.
