Just some info I found while I was looking in The Times archives.
The dates for these matches were given wrongly on RSSSF, here are the correct dates:

31/8/59 Bangkok, Thailand 1-3 Taiwan
The score was published in the Times on Tuesday 1/9/1959, so presumably the game took
place on Mon 31/8/59, or maybe the weekend before.

12/9/59 Taiwan 3-1 Thailand

25/4/60 Taiwan 1-2 South Korea

1/5/60 Taipei, Taiwan 1-0 South Korea
The match was abandoned at 35' when Korean players attacked the referee, after he allowed Taiwan to retake a penalty for infringements. Taiwan was awarded the tie.

15/4/60 India 4-2 Indonesia
The Times published the score on the Sat 16/4/60 edition, so I'm not 100% sure it was the day before, but judging by the reports for other games, it seems likely.

1/5/60 Indonesia 0-2 India

Tanaka: Taiwan 1-0 South Korea on 30-4-60

Did the Hong Kong newspapers say at what minute the game was abandoned? "The Times" and RSSSF Olympics page says 35', but the Korea link above says 22'.

Does anyone have the dates for the fixtures Austria vs Czechoslovakia?


According to Linguasport.com

http://www.linguasport.com/futbol/internacional/olimpiadas/1960_ROME_PR.htm

30-04-1960 Czechoslovakia-Austria 2-1
07-10-1959 Austria-Czechoslovakia 0-0

But I don't know why the first leg was in 1960 and the second leg in 1959 and not vice versa...

These dates are not exact, see for example Czechoslovakia vs. Hungary, which are obviously fake.

What surprised me was the lack of dates in the group with GB, since they would be the easiest to find in The Times etc. Neil?

Of course, but firstly the British group was the most distant from having any full national team involved, and secondly, nobody asked me yet! If I have 5 minutes tomorrow I will give you all the dates.

Thanks, Sensini. Do you know also the dates of the two matches between Austria and Czechoslovakia? We have the following information:

30-04-1960 Czechoslovakia-Austria 2-1
07-10-1959 Austria-Czechoslovakia 0-0


but we aren't sure about it.

Luca, both dates are correct.

I found that the Dutch FA requested the FIFA to investigate the amateur-status of the Austrian players in Nov. 1959 (see http://kranten.kb.nl/view/article/id/ddd%3A010687910%3Ampeg21%3Ap005%3Aa0102). In June 1960 the FIFA concluded Austria indeed fielded non-amateurs, but because Austria was already eliminated by that time, there were no direct consequenses (see http://kranten.kb.nl/view/article/id/ddd%3A010459867%3Ampeg21%3Ap008%3Aa0134).

One of the other matches in that group:
6 Apr. 1960 Czechoslovakia - Hungary 1-2 (HT 0-1) Brno
Date unknown: Hungary - Czechoslovakia (at least after 6 Apr. 1960)

Some other matches:

17 Apr. 1960 Tunesia - Sudan 2-0 (HT 1-0) Tunis

End of Aug. 1959 Afghanistan - India 2-5 Kabul (see http://kranten.kb.nl/view/article/id/ddd%3A010501044%3Ampeg21%3Ap003%3Aa0031)
Afghanistan - India scheduled for 5 Dec. 1959, but Afghanistan withdrew (see http://kranten.kb.nl/view/article/id/ddd%3A010405920%3Ampeg21%3Ap008%3Aa0112).

Both matches Japan - South Korea played in Tokyo (see http://kranten.kb.nl/view/article/id/ddd%3A010405955%3Ampeg21%3Ap008%3Aa00930

14 Apr. 1960 India - Indonesia 4-2 (HT 2-1) Calcutta
30 Apr. 1960 Indonesia - India 2-0 (HT 0-0) Jakarta

30 Apr. 1960 South Korea - Rep.China(=Taiwan) 1-0 Taipeh (abandoned after 35 min., see http://kranten.kb.nl/view/article/id/ddd%3A010473810%3Ampeg21%3Ap004%3Aa0055)

22 Dec. 1959 second leg Peru vs Uruguay 3-2 (HT 2-1)
Date unknown: first leg Peru vs Uruguay, and who played at home first?
16 Apr. 1960 Peru - Mexico 1-0 (HT 0-0) Lima
19 Apr. 1960 Peru - Suriname 3-1 (HT 0-1) Lima

All this info I found by using http://kranten.kb.nl, the online archive of Dutch newspapers (still expanding).
Who knows similar services in other countries?
