    Full titles read: "Ireland Wins - thrilling Soccer International with Scotland after close game by one goal to nil."

    Edinburgh, Scotland.

    M/Ss of the Irish and Scottish football team line-ups before the match. M/S of the two team captains with the referee as they toss a coin for the kick-off; a man with a strange hat contraption enters from the left and shakes hands with one of the captains - not sure if he is a mascot or just a nutbag.

    Several shots of the match in progress. Nice shot from the grandstand as spectators wave their hats in the air. L/Ss of several missed goals.

    The game was played on 25 February 1928.

    The title card says that the location is Edinburgh, however every source I've found says the location was Firhill Park, Glasgow.

    "M/S of the two team captains with the referee" - the Scotland captain is Tommy Muirhead. The referee is Arthur Ward.
