    This unofficial international game was played on 17 April 1943, attracting a massive attendance of 105,000.

    "Carter" is Raich Carter.

    "Compton" is Denis Compton, who made a few appearances as a professional footballer as well as being a highly successful England cricketer.

    "Westcott" is Dennis Westcott.

    Being an unofficial match, the goals scored here don't appear in players' official records.
