*At the start of 1950 there were, in effect, two "Ireland" teams, chosen by two rival associations. Both associations, the
Northern Ireland- based IFA and the Republic of Ireland- based FAI claimed jurisdiction over the whole of Irelandand selected players from the whole island. As a result several notable Irish players from this era played for both teams. Four players - Tom Aherne, Reg Ryan, Davy Walshand Con Martin- actually played for both the FAI XI and the IFA XI in these qualifying rounds. FIFAintervened, after complaints from the FAI, and subsequently restricted players' eligibility based on the political border. In 1953 FIFA ruled neither team could be referred to as "Ireland", decreeing that the FAI team be officially designated as the Republic of Ireland, while the IFA team was to become Northern Ireland.
* For the third qualifying tournament in a row, the South American teams qualified automatically after withdrawals. In Group 7, Bolivia and Chile did play two matches between them, but they were not classified as official World Cup qualifiers by FIFA.
