Tot Belgium 1-9 1½-8½ Yugoslavia

Unsurprisingly, the Belgian team was completely outclassed. I know very little about this match, with the exception of the crosstable that I found in [1] and one game which comes from [2].

Wanted

  • Almost all the games.
  • Lefebvre’s first name.
  • All organisational details.
