- Guillermo Stabile, who helped his nation beat the USA 6-1 in 1930, was on the receiving end of a 6-1 result as Argentina coach against Czechoslovakia.
- Despite being the event's sixth edition, Brazil and England played out its first 0-0 draw, a result that Wales and Sweden repeated four days later.
