Notes

  • Match Info:  Match to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the FA.
  • Controversial Match:  This match has been in contention for years. The match was declared official by the FA and caps were awarded. FIFA took a different stance but it wasn't until 2001 when they retrospectively declared the match unofficial on the grounds that only individual countries can play international matches. However, FIFA allowed caps to still stand, confusing the issue further. The FA still maintain that the match is official and we believe this makes more sense dispite FIFA's stance. ELO rankings are not available.
  • Player Milestone:  Eddie Hapgood's 25th Cap
