Hector ’Torten’ Goetinck coached that game and not Jack Butler, who had returned to England (see the link (link: ) to RSSSF where it is mentioned that Hector Goetinck was coaching Belgium for a second streak in 1939-40).

Also the book ’Onze Rode Duivels, vol.1’ reports Hector Goetinck coached that game as Jack Butler already returned to England. (link: )
