Notes
It was a significant moment in the history of Irish football as it was the last time that the (Northern) Irish Football Association entered a team featuring players born in both Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland.

Scottish FA insisted that they would only enter the World Cup Finals if they won their group/ Home Championship outright and even though they finished second, the Scottish FA declined the opportunity to travel to the World Cup finals. FIFA subsequently offered their place to France, the runners-up of Group 3 and the southern version of Ireland (FAI), the runners-up of Group 5.  Both teams also declined the invitation.
