Source Notes

Alex Villaplane would go on to become France's first Captain at the World Cup Finals. But more notoriously, he would be caught up the conflicts of WWII, becoming a leading member of the French Gestapo, eventually being shot as a traitor on 26 December 1944 for heinous crimes against his own people.
