team notes:

Jack Goodall was the original inside-right, he replaced Blackburn Rovers FC's Jack Southworth at centre-forward. James Whitehead was then added as the new inside-right. Everton FC's Edgar Chadwick and Alf Milward were replaced on the left by Schofield and Spiksley.
Jack Reynolds had already played five times for the Irish team, scoring once (1890-91 (two appearances and one goal against England))
This equals the oldest team England have fielded.
