Frank Wels (Unitas), Leen Vente (Neptunus), Charles Lungen (A.F.C.), Arend Schoemaker (Quick (Den Haag)), Henk Mulders (Ajax) reserves: K. Veenendaal (Naaldwĳk), Miel Lelyveld (V.U.C.), Cees van Maren (A.D.O.), Piet van Reenen (Ajax) Hungary XI: József Háda (Ferencváros); Lajos Kóranyi (Ferencváros), Sándor Biró (III.

Kerületi), András Simonyi (Atilla), György Sárosi (Ferencváros), Géza Toldi (Ferencváros), Sándor Hevesi (Bocskai) reserves: József Turay (Ferencváros), József Kármán (III. Kerületi); Gyula Lázár (Ferencváros) and László Cseh (Hungária) had been announced for the starting line-up but were replaced by Lyka and Simonyi Notes: during the first half Sárosi was replaced by a player not named in Dutch newspapers, but returned after half-time; http://www.magyarfutball.hu/hu/merkozes/3097 suggests his temporary replacement was József Turay; among the above players, Simonyi, Hevesi and Kármán never played an official match for Hungary but Simonyi earned four caps for France between 1942 and 1945 (as André); the Hungarian team represented PLASz, the organisation of professional players, rather than the MLSz (Hungarian FA); the same applies to the match on Jun 30, 1935.

(Malang)); Jack Samuels (Excelsior), Frans Hukom (Sparta (Bandoeng)); Anwar Sutan (Vios), Frans Meeng (S.V.B.B.), Achmad Nawir (H.B.S.); Hans Taihitu (S.V.J.A.), Tjaak Pattiwael (S.V.J.A.), Herman Zomers (Hercules), Suvarte Soedarmadji (H.B.S.), The Hong Djien (Tiong Hoa); unused reserves: L.N. van Beuzekom (Hercules), J.

Jun 11, 1939; Olympisch Stadion, Amsterdam Netherlands 4-1 Yugoslavia XI [Lenstra 3, Smit 8, Vente 32, De Harder 39; Perlić 26] referee: Aad van Welzenes; att: 50,000 Netherlands: Hennie Dĳkstra (A.P.G.S.); Cor Wilders (Blauw Wit), Bertus Caldenhove (D.W.S.); Bob Stam (V.U.C.), Wim Anderiesen (Ajax), Bas Paauwe (Feĳenoord); Guus Dräger (D.W.S.), Abe Lenstra (Heerenveen), Leen Vente (Feĳenoord), Kick Smit (Haarlem), Bertus de Harder (V.U.C.) Yugoslavia XI: Ljubomir Lovrić (Jugoslavija); Slobodan Anđelković (Jugoslavija), Zvonimir Požega (Vojvodina); Petar Manola (B.S.K.), Prvoslav Dragičević (B.S.K.), Gustav Lechner (B.S.K.); Svetislav Glišović (B.S.K.), Aleksandar Petrović (Jugoslavija), Manojlo Živković (Jedinstvo), Frane Matošić (Hajduk Split), Nikola Perlić (Jugoslavija); reserves: Srđan Mrkušić (B.S.K.), Ernest Dubac (B.S.K.), Bruno Knežević (B.S.K.), Dobrivoje Zečević (Jugoslavija) Note: both teams closely resembled the full national teams (only Manojlo Živković would never gain an official cap) but the two associations agreed beforehand not to report the match as an official international to F.I.F.A.; because of this, Abe Lenstra made his official debut only 9 months and 20 days later, on Mar 31, 1940, but nevertheless managed the longest ever national team career for a Dutch player (19 years and 19 days); A.P.G.S., the new club of 'keeper Dĳkstra (who had played for Z.F.C. in the 1938/39 season), had finished last in the third level Derde Klasse B in the district West I and were relegated to the fourth level in post-season playoffs (relegation effective for 1940/41 as no official league was played in 1939/40).
