Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b There existed no regular promotion and relegation in the leagues at this time. Teams were excluded, relegated, admitted or promoted to a league on other bases than their finishing position the season before.
  2. ^ The league was abandoned, however the incomplete table is considered the final table. The following two matches were not played: IFK Uppsala against both Djurgårdens IF and Östermalms IF.
  3. ^ a b Unknown tie breaker.
  4. ^ Some sources attribute Hans Lindman's goal to Erik Börjesson or Karl Gustafsson.
  5. ^ The team was made up of players from the England amateur team, but the match is recorded in most sources as being played against the England national team.
  6. ^ The Great Britain team that represented Great Britain and Ireland at the 1908 Olympic football tournament was made up of only English players, predominantly from the England amateur team, but the match is recorded in most sources as being played against the England national team.
  7. ^ Sweden who had been eliminated in the 1st round replaced France A who had lost in the semi-finals but refused to play the third place match.
  8. ^ Belgian sources indicate that the goal was scored 30' and not 15'.
  9. ^ Belgian sources indicate that the goal was scored 31' and not 17'.
