Remarks: 

[1] in January 2001 (!) FIFA decided not to recognize the match
    on 6-11-1968 as full "A" international. but the CBF kept it
    in the records.
[2] The United Ireland team comsisted of players from N. Ireland 
    and the Republic of Ireland; as it was a merged team, neither
    Irish FA recognises this match as official "A".
