The match was declared full A official by the FA and caps were awarded. FIFA took a different stance in 2001 when they retrospectively declared the match unofficial on the grounds that only individual countries can play international matches. However, FIFA allowed caps to still stand, confusing the issue further. The FA still maintain that the match is official and we believe this makes more sense despite FIFA's retro-downgrading. Vittorio Pozzo coached for the second time a Continental Team. Pozzo is considered one of the best managers of all time and won the FIFA World Cup (1934 and 1938) at the same time, consecutively. In addition to winning both tournaments, during his time as coach of Italy, he remained unbeaten between 1930 and 1934, won two editions of the Dr. Gerö Cup (1930 and 1935) and won the gold medal at the Olympic Games (1936) and the bronze medal (1928). To this day, he has been the only coach to have won twice the World Cup.

"In 1946, the first post-war FIFA Congress saw the four UK associations welcomed back after an absence of almost 20 years. To help celebrate this momentous occasion, a match between a Team XI from the UK and a team from the Rest of Europe was arranged for the following year. Many fans packed into the stadium to watch what the press had dubbed the "Match of the Century". The Great Britain side, playing in blue in honour of their hosts, was selected by new England manager Walter Winterbottom. The Daily Telegraph patriotically declared that the Brits had given their opponents a "lesson in football" and "outplayed the cream of Europe", while Pathé News simply stated that "British soccer is still the World's best". The football correspondent of the Glasgow Herald, however, offered a more cautious tone and felt the hosts had been flattered by the result..." Comment source: Neil Andrews.

This match, retrospectively, is not recognised as official by FIFA, even though, FIFA choose the team and made requests regarding the officials. The players of the Europe team (or Rest of Europe) had their shirts with the FIFA shield (light blue buttoned-up collared jerseys). Other substitutes that did not enter: Ernst Happel (SK Rapid Wien), Karl Stotz (FK Austria Wien), Andrés Bosch and Estanislau Basora (both Barcelona) Alfredo de Stefano, originally named to the squad, was not permitted to play because of a dispute between the Spanish FA and Colombian FA over the players' transfer. "This superb match was arranged to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Football Association and although the Rest of Europe side was somewhat of a makeshift eleven, the two teams produced a suitably memorable occasion. In fact the visitors almost ended England's proud record of never losing to a continental side on home soil. It was magnificent entertainment by the superior skills of the Europe team".

The match is full A for England. The substitues for the FIFA Rest of the World team were pre-planned hence the same shirt numbers with those that they replaced. However, an injury to Raymond Kopa saw him being replaced by Uwe Seeler instead of the intended Alfredo Di Stefano. Therefore there were two 9s on the field for the second half. Fernando Riera was the first South American coach to head a Rest of the World selection. It was a recognition of FIFA for having achieved the third place in the World Cup in Chile in 1962. Achievement to gather the best players at that time, but could not be present Pele (by the opposition of a businessman who left him bankrupt) or Garrincha, who was injured. Nor could the Argentine Silvio Marzolini, the best left-back in the world at that time, also injured. A curiosity: Alf Ramsey played ten years ago as a player for England and is now coach with England. "It was a fantastic event, with an exhilarating Wembley and thousands of fans enjoying the players. FIFA regulations allowed for only one substitution per team, and with the talent in their squad the Rest of the World threatened not to play unless they were allowed to make five changes, giving the entire squad an opportunity to take to the pitch. The FA relented, but although England had five players on the bench, none came on". Denis Law said: ‘To be lining up alongside some of the finest footballers who ever lived, including my all-time hero Alfredo Di Stefano, was an absolutely unimaginable honour. There is an old saying that you should never meet your heroes but whoever came up with that notion had obviously never encountered Alfredo Di Stefano". England’s goalkeeper Gordon Banks said: "There was nowhere near as much football on the telly in those days, so to have all those great stars in one place, on one pitch, the FA could have sold those Wembley tickets 10 times over…. We played really well but I had never played against them. I was playing for clubs that weren’t in Europe so it was a great thrill for me. And I rated Lev Yashin as the top goalkeeper in the world, a superman". Comment source: The Daily Mail.

As well as the 35,000 fans in attendance at the Victoria Ground, the stadium was chock full of Eurovision television cameras and radio services from around the world. All in all, it’s said some 112 million people tuned in to watch ‘The Wizard of Dribble’ weave his silken magic one final time. It truly was a momentous day. Yahin and Puskas carried the departing hero off on their shoulders as the 35,000 fans inside the Victoria Ground serenaded him from the pitch with a rousing chorus of ‘Auld Lang Syne’…" Comment source Chris Wright.

Considered the first crack of the soccer of his country, in his honor the Zamora Trophy was instituted in 1959, that rewards to the goalkeeper conceding fewest goals every season in the Spanish League. He spent 26 years in the clubs of Espańol, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Nice, as well as the Spanish National Team.
