  • In this file, 5 official matches by the Dutch East Indies prior to World War II are considered, which are not recognised by the current Indonesian federation (PSSI) but were official internationals for the N.I.V.B. (until 1935) and the N.I.V.U. (since 1935), which were both officially affiliated to FIFA at the time of the relevant matches.

    The 5 matches are:

    13 May 1934   Manila       Dutch East Indies          7-1       Japan

    19 May 1934   Manila       Philippines                3-2       Dutch East Indies

    Notes on names
    
    Below, family names are given in capital letters; for Chinese players usually publicly
    known by their given names, these are in italics.  Jack Kolle played football under 
    the family name of his stepfather, Samuels (also given in italics).
    
    Given names or initials are only listed to the extent in which the author has been able
    to verify them in contemporary sources.  (Additional information is of course welcome:

    Club teams are indicated as at time of international appearance; a number of players
    played for various clubs and in different towns during their career.
    
    Note that for both the Far Eastern Games in 1934 and the World Cup in 1938, all squad
    members were required to have been born in the Dutch East Indies.

    Unused Substitutes

    The 1934 Far Eastern Games squad included one player (the reserve goal keeper) who did not make an appearance in any of the three matches; the 1938 World Cup squad included six players who did not obtain a cap at the tournament in France nor against the Netherlands.

    Preliminary Selections

    The preliminary squad for the 1934 Eastern Games comprised 20 players; 5 were dropped after a one-week training camp in Tjimahi in April, including Achmad Nawir who would later make the 1938 World Cup squad (as captain) and is therefore not included in the list below; the preliminary squad for the 1938 World Cup as announced on 13 February 1938 after the last trial matches consisted of 18 players, as opposed to the originally agreed 11 first team players and 6 reserves, implying one less official would be able to make the trip; the N.I.V.U. board disagreed with this and enforced one player was dropped after the test matches on 26 and 27 February 1938 (the choice was made between Jan Harting and Harry Dorst).

    Goalscoring in Unofficial Matches

    Prior to the 1934 Far Eastern Games, the N.I.V.B. fielded Java selections on three occasions: on 28 March 1921 against the Singapore Cricket Club, on 19 August 1928 against a touring Australian side, and on 17 Aug 1930 against Shanghai club side Loh Hwa. These three matches were included as "Inter-Association Matches" in the World Football Almanac published by FIFA in 1931. Among all players listed above, only 2 made an appearance in any of those matches: both Denkelaar and Jahn (then playing club football at Excelsior (Soerabaja)) played against Loh Hwa in 1930. In the same match, Bep Bakhuys (who played club football at T.H.O.R. (Soerabaja) and scored 28 goals in 23 official matches for the Netherlands), made an appearance. Below, we only list the goal scorers for the N.I.V.B. in those three matches. No player was active in (or indeed selected for) more than one of these three matches.
