Further Information

The UEFA website has the results, match summaries and tables for all qualifying groups and quarterfinal matchups, although its tables are incorrect in awarding three points for a win instead of two and its summaries do not include lineups, goalscorers or goal times.  A correct version of the tables, along with the bare results, may be found in the Rec.Sport.Soccer Statistical Foundation Archive.  Match summaries that include goalscorers and goal times but not lineups are available from the archives of La Gazetta della Sport.  We are not aware of any website that offers complete match summaries for the 1968 preliminary competition.
