Notes

  • Match InfoThe attendance for this match failed by 138 to beat the world record set in the same fixture two years previously. However, it still can be ranked as the second largest crowd to watch an international match in Europe.
  • WeatherConditions were so atrocious both teams wore new shirts for the second half, England borrowing theirs from Queen's Park.
