Request for info re Bangu A.C of Brazil in Canada


Recommended Posts

The PCSL website includes some historical data on foreign teams that have toured British Columbia. See http://www.pcsl.org/thepcsl-tour-intro.htm

The PCSL webmaster today received a request for more details on the 1963 June 15 Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Bangu A.C. of Brazil match in front of over 19,000 spectators at Empire Stadium in Vancouver.

Thanks a lot

Thanks to soccer historian Dave Fryatt, the PCSL was able to provide lineups and names of officials (but not goalscorers). Carlos has come back with a request for more information on Bangu games in Canada. If anybody can help I am sure he would be delighted....

I really work as journalist in Radiobras, in Brazil, but the question I did to you was because I´m a fan of Bangu A.C, and I have a site in the net, called www.bangu.net - with all the results of this club since 1904.

I have others doubts envolving games of Bangu in Canadá, but only one in Vancouver. You forgot to give me the goal scorers, but was: Chris Crowe, Jimmy Murray, Roberto Pinto and Beto (all in first time of the game), isn´t it?

Thanks a lot for answered my last question.

Could you help me?
