      KB's ground was 1894-1925 situated at Skt. Markus Allé (Frederiksberg). It
        does not exist anymore. The ground gave in 1926 way to an exhibition
        centre, the Forum.
      This was 1st time ever an English (amateur) International side lost outside
        of the United Kingdom.
      A 2nd match was scheduled for Saturday, May 7th, 1910. However, HRH King
        Edward died Friday night, and as the King had been protector of the FA,
        the officials asked for a postponement until Monday, May 9th. After heavy
        rain over Copenhagen the referee, J. H. Pearson, called the match.
