Attendance: 7,000
Note: First of a series of four test matches against Japan, played by the U-21 team under the guise of 
    the A team. Although formally official, these matches cannot be treated on par with normal internationals, 
    and therefore, IMO, this match cannot be considered as having the most number of debutants ever (twelve), 
    although technically this was obviously the case. (From Gwidon S. Naskrent's file on RSSSF)
