Notes[edit]

  1. ^ FIFA reports this match was halted after 77 minutes because Honduras were left with only six players on the field, after four red cards, and one serious injury, with no more substitutions available. FIFA incorrectly state that a team with only seven players is not allowed (seven is Ok, six is not). FIFA (and others) report the game ended after 77 minutes, along with a 78th minute goal. Those times may seem contradictory, but they are not. Goals are always attributed to the minute that has not yet ended. But the record of an abandoned game always reports the number of minutes completed. For example, the last goal could have been scored (let's say) at precisely 77 minutes and 20 seconds after the initial whistle. And let's further say it was followed just 20 seconds later by the decision to abandon the game. The official record would show a 78th minute goal in a game that was abandoned after 77 minutes (just like this game).
  2. ^ FIFA reports Doha Stadium as the one used in the final. However, no such stadium existed in Qatar at that time. The RSSSF indicates the Khalifa Stadium instead, which is something much more probable, since it was by then the only stadium in Doha with the capacity stated for this final.
