Notes

  • QualificationIn one of the closest group stages of any World Cup the winners, England, did so by winning 1-0 in their final game against Egypt. All the other games in the group resulted in draws. With both Netherlands and Ireland having identical records and both assured of qualfication to the next round, lots were drawn to decide their paths.
