Notes

This tournament commemorated the Brazilian Football Association’s 50th anniversary. It was also called the Brazilian Jubilee Tournament and heralded as the "Little World Cup."  England manager Alf Ramsey, already immersed in preparing for the World Cup finals still two years away, used the tournament to measure his side against South American opposition and received a rude awakening. 

The attendance figures for England's three matches given in Mike Payne, England: The Complete Post-War Record, pp. 197-98 (1993)--Brazil 110,000, Portugal 70,000 and Argentina 95,000--are much larger than those stated in Ron Hockings & Keir Radnedge, Nations of Europe, vol. 1, p. 194, vol. 2, p. 24 (1993)--Brazil 77,000, Portugal 25,000 and Argentina 15,000.
