Having consulted another newspaper (from what is now Pakistan), another revision of the 1941 tournament is on its way to RSSSF.
23-Aug-1941 Iran 1-0 India XI
24-Aug-1941 Afghanistan 1-0 Iran [or 0-0] *
24-Aug-1941 Istiqlal College (Kabul) 1-0 Union Club (Peshawar) **
-Aug-1941 Afghanistan 1-3 India XI ***
* This match was also reported as a 0-0 draw. Some Iranian sources suggest
that Afghanistan scored a penalty in the last minute, which was protested by Iran.
It may be that the match was declared a draw in the interests of diplomacy.
** Home team also reported as Harbia Club (Kabul).
*** Mentioned by only one source (a retrospective).
The two scores on 24th August were mentioned in the "Lahore Civil and Military Gazette" in two reports.
The second report gave a summary of all sports in the festival, listing only those two matches for football.
The Iran 1-0 India XI match seems to be mentioned only in Iranian sources.
The only source found which mentioned the Afghanistan 1-3 India XI match was this: Afghanistan national football team
(by Karim Popal), but as it is a retrospective, the year could be wrong. Oh well.
