Notes

Chile and Bolivia qualified for the World Cup 1950 final tournament from Group 7 when the third team in the group, Argentina, withdrew from the competition.  Bolivia and Chile played two home and away games in February and March, 1950.  Miguel Angel Bestard records them as "World Cup eliminator" matches in the list of Chile's results in his International Football in South America 1901-1991 (1992), which would seem to indicate they were played before Argentina's withdrawal.  And the Rec.Sport.Soccer Statistical Foundation Archive's list of results in games between Bolivia and Chile describes them as "World Cup Qualifying" matches.  FIFA does not, however, include these games among the World Cup preliminary matches played by either country, and the authoritative World Cup histories do not mention them either, stating simply that Bolivia and Chile qualified when Argentina withdrew.  Other Chile results lists do not describe them as World Cup qualifying matches.  We have therefore recorded these two matches as friendlies.
