The Australians hopped across to Singapore for four matches. It's hard to say if the first match was a Singapore representative XI or not; local reports have it as a 'Best XI' from the Singapore Chinese Football Association and the (Singapore) Malaya Football Association. The spectators were so excited in victory, a stadium wall collapsed.

Many sources have this listed as a Java XI. In fact, this is one of the first representative matches of the Dutch East Indies national team against another official national team, NIVB having been a national association member of FIFA since 1924. This match was one of five additional matches in Soerabaja arranged after the promotors had failed to agree terms with the Batavia city federation (VBO) on the three planned matches in Batavia. 2x5 minutes extra time were played after the score at full time was 1-1
