     Match Report as appears in the F.A. Yearbook 1950-51, pages 26-27

For the 'B' team's match against Holland at Amsterdam on May 17th several changes were made in the side that had lost to Italy.
Holland won their first victory over England since 1935 in a disappointing game. England was soundly beaten by a more workmanlike side. The forward-line was particularly weak, comparing unfavourably with Dutch opponents who were slower and less skilful, but superior in the vital matter of accurate passing.
England started well, and Pye nearly scored in the fifth minute. But there was a lack of co-ordination about them, and their attacks tended to peter out. Holland's first goal came after 31 minutes of these abortive attacks.
The second-half started with a series of badly missed chances for England. Then, following defensive lapses, came two goals for Holland in rapid succession, by Roosenburg and Lenstra, to give the home side victory by 3 goals to 0.
