Hello Svetovy Poharu!

Yes, that kind of refereeing would be very intersting today! According to some articles, that I have, it was the same thing in Antwerp 1920 too!

Most of the goalscoring was made by Canada (5 00 110-3), USA (4 0 1 71-6) and Great Britain (3 0 2 40-38). The last one, I think, was because of the British Canadians; five out of eleven GBR players were born in Canada. Well, we will see! No wonder, that the organizers were concerned. Based on the photos I have seen, they didn't have high boards even behind the goalie! So, in principal, they didn't obey the rules, even the contemporary ones!

All right, thanks a lot for extra information!

All the best
Jukka
