A newspaper article on December 24th, 1955 in De Nieuwsgier listed the following additional
results of Ferroviário "in international matches in the last two years": a 2-2 draw against
Djurgårdens IF (in the beginning of 1955), a 1-3 loss against Dundee, a 1-2 loss against
Newcastle United, a 3-0 win against South Africa, a 2-0 win against South Transvaal and
a 3-0 win against North Transvaal.
The same article also claimed that 4 Ferroviário players were part of the Portugal national side which beat England 3-1 "in Lisbon last summer" (a match actually played on May 22nd, 1955, in Oporto). However, that information is clearly wrong given the squad list published in the same paper on December 13th (see below); the Portuguese line-up against England contained 3 players born in Portuguese East Africa (and 1 in Angola): goalkeeper Alberto da Costa Pereira (then under contract at Benfica in Lisbon), forward Sebastião Lucas da Fonseca, nicknamed "Matateu" (then under contract at Belenenses, also in Lisbon), and finally midfielder Júlio Cernadas Pereira, nicknamed Juca (then under contract at Lisbon side Sporting). None of them were in Indonesia with Ferroviário.
Match Overview NB: there may have been other matches, but not in Indonesia. Ferroviário arrived in Djakarta on December 22nd with a flight from Bangkok. Results in Macao and Saigon were reported in the Preangerbode on December 24th (also including the Hongkong scores, with the "All Hongkong" side incorrectly identified as "Europeans"), suggesting Ferroviário played no other matches prior to arriving in Djakarta.
