A very strong Yugoslavian team was on a tour. Along the way, they stopped for a match against Belgium in Brussels. Unsurprisingly, the Belgian team was completely outclassed.  Limbos and Soultanbeieff were missing, but their presence would probably not have massively altered the outcome.The results and two games come from [1], one more game comes from [2].

Wanted

  • Almost all the games.
  • Lefebvre’s first name.
