Spain vs Brazil 1934




The knockout format of the 1934 World Cup tournament meant that Brazil, Argentina and the United States only played one match each after their transatlantic voyages.
Here is an action shot from the Brazil v Spain match played at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, Genoa (27.05.34). Leônidas da Silva shooting wide, watched by Ricardo Zamora.
Brazil were 3-0 down in half an hour, Leônidas announced himself with a 55th minute strike. Brazil were awarded a penalty in the 62nd minute, but Zamora, playing in his 43rd international, saved from Waldemar de Brito.

Pilgrims

The Pilgrims, a selection of  amateur invitees, made 2 tours to North America in the 1900s.

1905
The 1905 tour was financed by C. H. Murray, an American 'gentleman'. In addition to the players and Mr Murray other  travelers were Baron Von Reiffenstein (who was the backer of the amateur Southern League outfit Southern United), Mr.J. J. Bentley (President of the Football League, Vice-President of the Football Association), and Lady Kirkpatrick.
Sir Charles Kirkpatrick was a middle distance runner pressed into service as a goalkeeper.
Fred Milnes was captain.
Milnes and Woodward were due to meet President Roosevelt, who advocated Association football over the American game, but sadly the meeting never took place.
The object of the 1905 Tour was to promote Association Football, and this was met with some opposition by College authorities who had embraced the dreadful hybrid collision sport that passed for 'football' in North America. Sir Charles vehemently and diplomatically denied that they wanted to displace the native code.
Sir Ernest Cochrane donated a trophy to be contested by American colleges, and the match between The Pilgrims and New York was played for the Cochrane Cup.
There are references to some games being played under ‘Canadian Rules’ which may be a euphemism for rough play. The Canadian game allowed players to be 'checked' or charged when they were nowhere near the ball.
The intention was to play some cricket, but I can find no reference to this happening.
