Socceroo B Matches 1941

Socceroo B Matches for 1941

Written by Greg Stock with thanks to the research of Doug Butcher. For more details see credits

In 1941 a Chinese team toured Australia and played a series of five matches against the Australian national side. As per the Chinese tours of Australia in 1923 and 1927 there is much conjecture as to the composition of the side and whether it was in fact a provincial or club side. This is why this tour appears as a series of B matches.
