The earliest known footage of an international match in progress shows Wales' 4-4 draw with Ireland at The Racecourse.
FIFA had proposed a tournament for their member nations to be held in Switzerland in 1906, but it never materialized.
England introduced a distinction between their amateur and professional representative teams (professionals were in the ascendancy; England fielded an all-professional team in 4 matches from 1902-04). In the first England Amateurs match, a  15-0 stroll against France, Vivian Woodward displayed some Corinthian qualities. Believing that the referee had been harsh in a penalty decision he deliberately missed the resulting spot kick.
Argentina and Uruguay competed for two trophies in 1906, Copa Lipton and Copa Newton.
Bohemia (another element of the Austro-Hungarian Empire) made their international debut.
