They've scored only four-and three were against unrated Zaire. But one goal against Sast Germany in the second round was enough for Brazilian manager Mario Zagallo. He now looks for a draw in Sunday's match against Argen- ina. Once that is achieved, he will look for a victory over Holand the following Wednesday. That would put Brazil on op of Group A and in the World Cup final. Rinus Michels. multilingual manager of the Dutch team, mows exactly what Zagallo has n mind.

"He's confident of beating th other finalist, which must comi from one of f o u r Group I teams--West G e r m a n y , Poland Sweden or Yugoslavia. Jock Slein, manager of Glas gow Celtic, touring the Worli Cup as a television com mentator, and one of most ex perienced neutrals on the WorL Cup scene, agrees that Brazi has been underrated. "Brazil just can't be written off. They have a strong team and are still very much to be feared." he said.

Thursday's rain was good news for Nastase, No. 2 seed from Romania, and other European clay court players. As Wimbledon's famed lush lawns Robinson Says Angels Need Williams' Steel ANAHEIM (AP) -- The last- lace California Angels will be appy to see Dick Williams-- ut they don't see him as a uaranteed messiah leading lem to the pennant in 1974. But veteran Frank Robinson, ialifornia's designated hitter nd the only man to be Most /aluable Player in both major eagues, sees qualities in Wilams that no man has brought to the helm of the Angels. "He's' a tough, no-nonsense juy who has a record of turn- ig things around. He did it at Boston in his first year." Williams, besides managing Oakland to World Series riumphs the past two seasons, ed Boston to the pennant in 967. his rookie year as a big- eague manager. Robinson said Williams is a ar cry from the "easy-going" lanagers--Bill Rigney, Lefty 'hillips, Del Rice and Bobby Winkles--the Angels have had ince 1961, when they were ormed in the American league's expansion. Winkles was fired Thursday, about six hours before Williams agreed i take the job. "I don't know if the change will be good or not,*' said Robnson. "That's something thai ermains to be seen." Robinson, who didn't gel along with Winkles, cited the :eam's long injury list. "But :he team wasn't playing well You can't fire 25 ballplayers, so /ou fire the manager," he said. "We may not be able to catch Oakland but we can still finish respectable second or third," lobinson added. Other California players agreed. "I don't want lo say he's a scapegoat," said Bob Oliver. 'He did the best job he could. Only Dave Chalk and Lee Stanon are having good years. If I was having an outstanding year and if Robinson was having a good year, maybe We'd be win ning. Bobby Valentine, who has Ken out with injuries much of 973 and 1974 while Winkles nanaged, said: "I only wish ' lad not been hurt so much so 1 could have done more for him fe's my kind of manager and "m his kind of player." Thoroughbred Retired NEW YORK (AP) -- North Sea, Alfred O Vanderbilt's 5 year-old thoroughbred, ha- seen retired from racing. The w i n n e r of $237.206 broke a cof :in bone in his foot in Wednes day's Nassau County Handicap at Aqueduct. weatcd beneath covers, they iresented a «rim view for the ;rass court whiz kids of the jnited States and Australia. "1 feel good." said Nastase, ; his best on Europe's slow clay courts. "I've never known Wimbledon to play so slow," he said. I think 1 might go » long way this year." Nearly two days have been osl in the 87th championships o rain. The program should have reached the last 32 in both the men's and women's singles by today. But only a handful of slayers have completed second round matches. Safely through to the men's third round were top-seeded John Newcombe and fellow Australian Ken Rosewall, Stan Smith and Tom Gorman of the United States, defending cham pion Jan Kodes of Czech oslovakia, fifth-seeded Swede Bjorn Borg and Nasta; e. In the women's singles, the top two seeds, Billie Jean King and Chris Evert of the United States, as well as British veter an Christine Janes, were the only players through to the round of 32. Nastase wasn't the only play er who could see the change in Wimbledon's usually fizzing surface. Manuel Orantes of Spain seeded only 12th but considerec among the finest slow etay courts players in the world, could have a good chance of a brg breakthrough here unless :he grass dries fast. Other Europeans who might enjoy the changed conditions nclude Alex Metreveli, the Soviet Union's best player ever, and Borg. who already has won the Italian and French titles his year--on clay. The hopes of Newcombe, .Smith and third-seeded Jim Connors of Belleville, 111., could be buried in the slow courts. Because of the rain, only two matches were completed Thursday, and both had been halted b y ' r a i n and darkness Wednesday. Miss Evert outlasted Lesley Hunt of Australia 8-6, 5-7, 11-9, and Borg beat Ross Case of Australia 3-6. 6-1, 8 6, 7-S.
