This match was originally announced as preliminary game, but according to fog was changed into friendly. (link: )

L’arbitro designato era l’ungherese Zsolt. Fu trovato sul posto non lo scozzese George Mitchell, ma un arbitro locale con lo stesso cognome Mitchell. Quindi non Scozia ma Irlanda del Nord. (link: )
