[*] in 1906, a touring side ("Springboks") representing the South African 
    Football Association, considered the country's national side, toured
    South America, playing a variety of club teams as well as league XIs
    and a side called "Argentinos" which consisted of the best Argentine
    players from the local league; it is an unofficial match for Argentina
    but was considered an "official" "Test match" by the tourists; on 15
    July the "Springboks" played against a multinational selection from
    the Argentine League called "Liga Argentina" and won 4-1, with Henman
    scoring the first goal for the tourists; this match is often counted
    as an international match for South Africa instead of the match on
    9 July but from the Argentine point of view, the first of these two
    matches involved a much more 'national' side; counting the match on
    15 July also begs the question why the match against the Liga Uruguaya
    in Montevideoa few days later, which South Africa won 6-1, is not
    counted.
