It would appear to be the first match of a CA Paulistano tour of Europe played at Stade Buffalo. "Paulistano" is a demonym for people from São Paulo, which could add to the confusion.

Results from the tour are available here (the match against France is given as 7-1 on the list but 7-2 in the text body, and the latter result confirmed elsewhere). Short reports and details are given in this article (both in Portuguese).

During this game, Paulistano fielded another important player: Amphilóquio Guarisi Marques “Filó”. He later took part in the World Cup triumph with Italy in 1934.
