There were originally 23 teams in the competition however five teams withdrew from the competition making it so that the remaining 18 teams in the tournament had to be redrawn. The five teams that withdrew were Burma, Palestine, Pakistan, Poland, and Hungary. The original draw for the preliminary round was- July 26 Luxembourg vs Afghanistan at Brighton, Ireland vs Netherlands at Portsmouth, China vs Turkey at Eastbourne, Burma vs India at Worthing, July 27 Yugoslavia vs Pakistan at Southen, Sweden vs Austria at Bournemouth, Egypt vs Denmark at Portsmouth. The US had a bye and was drawn against Poland in the next round. Libro0 (talk) 06:32, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Error in format[edit]

In the Semi-final matches, G.B. is listed to the left and Yugoslavia to the right. Yugoslavia was the winning team in that match and should be left, according to the protocol of this article. Amandajm (talk) 00:22, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Attendance discrepancy[edit]

The Wikipedia article on the Green Pond Road stadium lists the attendance of the Chine v Turkey match there as 21,708. The present article, presumably based on teh linked FIFA report, gives it as 3000. Northern winter (talk) 11:51, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
