Notes

  • Status DisputeThere is contention over the validity of this match. It was agreed beforehand by the two associations that it would be unofficial because the Swedish team was a combination team. However, the English FA have since declared it official in their records. The Swedish FA & FIFA disagree and credit this match as being unofficial. It is included here because the FA awarded caps for this match.
