GOLD MEDAL TOURNAMENT - FIRST ROUND NB: Switzerland withdrew after the first round pairings had been drawn; Poland failed to arrive. Note that Yugoslavia was officially called the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes until 1929, but colloquially named Yugoslavia since its formation in 1918.

Top scorer: Herbert Carlsson (Sweden) 7 goals SILVER AND BRONZE MEDALS TOURNAMENT - FIRST ROUND NB: between quarter-final losers of the gold medal tournament. Antwerpen Italy 2-1 Norway [a2et] Antwerpen Spain 2-1 Sweden SILVER AND BRONZE MEDALS TOURNAMENT - SECOND ROUND NB: between between first round winners. Antwerpen Spain 2-0 Italy SILVER AND BRONZE MEDALS TOURNAMENT - THIRD ROUND NB: between second round winners (i.e. Spain, as the "best quarter-final losers") and the teams to have lost against gold medalists Belgium in the final, the semi-finals and the first round of the gold medal tournament; however, as final losers Czechoslovakia were disqualified and Belgium had received a first round bye due to the non-arrival of Poland, only the Netherlands (as semi-final losers against Belgium) were entitled to join Spain in the tournament. Note that the team to have lost the semi-final against the losers of the final of the gold medal tournament (i.e. France) was not supposed to be part of the tournament for silver and bronze medals (as illogical as that is). Sources claiming that Spain were to play Egypt (as winners of a supposed tournament between the first round losers, see below) or that the Netherlands were to play France (who allegedly could not play because their players had left already - a rather fanciful explanation, as France is not particularly far away from Belgium) are wrong. Spain w/o Czechoslovakia [Czechoslovakia disqualified] Netherlands w/o Poland [Poland failed to arrive] SILVER AND BRONZE MEDALS TOURNAMENT - FINAL Antwerpen Spain 3-1 Netherlands FRIENDLY NB: the below match is often listed as one belonging to a "consolation tournament" but such a tournament was not foreseen in the set-up of the official tournament and the actual status of this match is that of a friendly (as reported by Antwerp newspapers at the time). None of the other first round losers entered this fictitious consolation tournament; only the team that had lost in the first round to the later gold medalists was eligible to enter the tournament for the silver and bronze medals (but as that was Poland, who failed to show for their first round encounter against Belgium, that did not happen). Antwerpen Egypt 4-2 Yugoslavia
