* Uruguay later withdrew from the final tournament on 8th June 1976; Argentina was invited as a
replacement but declined, and the place eventually went to Cuba (as best CONCACAF non-qualifiers).
Notes: Originally the tournament was to be played as two groups of five teams in the cities of
Recife and Salvador, but was restructured after the withdrawals of Bolivia, Ecuador,
Paraguay, and Venezuela before the first week of January. Argentina also announced its
withdrawal in early January, but reversed its decision just a couple of days before the
tournament: it was represented by the reserve team of Newell's Old Boys (Rosario).

Congratulations, Neil: great work. Thanks also to Gerardo and Hassanin.
I have a curious anecdote about Argentina-Chile 2-1. It was a very violent match, where three players were sent off. Also, one of the defenders fielded by Argentina was Marcelo Bielsa, who, several years later, became the coach of the Chilean National team.

Thanks Luca. Note in particular that the following match is often listed with the wrong score of 7-0, not to mention the wrong date.

Also many of the CONCACAF matches are often listed with nonsense dates.

For this match I found full lineups in Mexican (or Hispanic) newspapers - Pereira was not in the Cuban lineup.

I saw that in another report - for a few countries the reasons for withdrawal were given but they were usually vague, e.g. "for internal reasons" or "for competitive reasons", and for other countries no reason was given at all. So I decided not to write the reasons. In general finances or lack of confidence may be assumed in most cases.

Folha de São Paulo credits the Chilean goal to a Fonseca; Napoleão and Assaf's Seleção Brasileira to Juan Orellana. Neither seem to mention Bonvallet.
Full details for the South American group seem to be generally available, at least in the Folha archive (inc. lineups, referees, attendances). Would you be interested on those as well (or maybe you already have them)?

Both "La Opinion" and "Jornal Do Brasil" mention "Bomballet" in the Chile lineup, as does RSSSF Brasil. La Opinion says he scored the Chilean goal, whereas Jornal and RSSSF Brasil say Orellana scored. "El Tiempo" of Colombia says Orellana scored the goal at 73', having replaced Neumann at end of first half (but full lineups are not given).
So I will change it to Orellana, but without conviction...
As for the Chile lineup, there are several versions:
RSSSF Brasil: Wirth, Sanhueza, Vergara, Cubillas, Quirinos, Gatica, Bombalet, Neumann, Fonseca, Zurita (Soto), Duran (Orellana).
Napoleão and Assaf: Wirth, Sanhueza, Gatz, Cubillas (Soto), Chirinos, Gatica, Nunez, Neumann, Fonseca, Zurita (Orellana), Duran.
La Opinion: Wirth, Sanhueza, Vergara, Urbino, Chirino, Gatica, Bombalet, Neumann, Fonseca, Zurita, Duran. [subs not mentioned]
Folha: Wirth, Sanhueza, Vergara, Urilla, Chirinos, Gatica, Zamora, Neumann, Fonseca, Zurita (Orellana), Duran (Soto).
Jornal do Brasil: Wirth, Sanhueza, Vergara, Ubilla, Chirinos, Gatica, Bomballet, Neumann, Fonseca, Zunita (Orellana), Duran (Soto).

Therefore by combination I deduce this lineup:
Óscar Wirth, Nelson Sanhueza, Augusto Vergara, Juan Ubilla, Mario Chirinos, Santiago Gatica, Eduardo Bonvallet, Jorge Neumann, Jaime Fonseca, Mario Zurita (Juan Carlos Orellana), Carlos Duran (Juan Soto Quintana).

I also found lineups for virtually all the matches listed in agency reports published in the newspapers mentioned above. I haven't typed them all because in this era of Olympics, South America is the least interesting continent (for me) because none of the countries could use their full national team.
And also due to inconsistent data such as discussed above.

Great, thanks! Do Italian newspapers mention any of these matches? In general I would take newspaper reports as providing the most direct form of confirmation, where there is any discrepancy. But harder to find!
Giampaolo wrote:Discrepancies checked as follows:

Could be. News agency reports were marked from Casablanca, but they didn't explictly say the game was played there:
El Mundo Deportivo , 24 Feb 1975
Casablanca, 23rd - Morocco yesterday beat Libya 2-1 in OGQ. [1-0 HT]
Straits Times & Berita Harian, 25 Feb 1975
Casablanca, Monday - Morocco yesterday beat Libya 2-1 (HT 1-0) in OGQ.
Goals: Faras 3', Urcilla 77' / Bahloul 70'
Giampaolo wrote:2) Dakar: Senegal - Togo 1-0 on 01.06.75 (instead of 01.05.75)
Almost certainly correct.
RSSSF countrywise files on Senegal and Togo give 1/5/75 (most likely taken from Barry Baker's 1996/97 African guidebook which gives the same). 1st of May was a Thursday so it's most unlikely compared to 1st of June (=Sunday). And then it also agrees with some of the other matches in the round.

Hmm. Seems like AIC77 invented those dates for 1st Round as simply 7 and 14 days earlier than the 2nd Round.
I found only one newspaper report mentioning Gambia vs Guinea, as follows:
El Mundo Deportivo, 21 May 1975
Sevilla, 20th - Required by the Sports Ministry of his country and by request of the football federation, the Sevilla player "Biri Biri" has left for Gambia to join the Gambian national team for an Olympic qualifying match which his country plays next week vs Guinea.

Indeed, the same match was mentioned in FIFA News (September 1975 edition). Venue not given, referee from Ivory Coast.
Also given: 7/9/75 Ivory Coast 1-1 Nigeria (also referee from Ivory Coast).
So perhaps there was a triangular there but no other result was given.
Anyway I think this was unrelated to Olympic qualifying.

OK. I have no real evidence to support Lusaka (only 11v11), so let's say Ndola.

The first played only one international for the Dutch NT: as a sub against Argentina in Bern, May 1979 (75th anniversary of FIFA). The latter also played in this game. The match ended 0-0 and in the penalty shoot out that followed both missed...

Tehran, Thur - Kuwait 4-2 Saudi Arabia, and Iraq 4-0 Bahrain in Olympic qualifiers here yesterday.
This indicates the match was on 27/8, which also supports data from Hassanin Mubarak. However, a Kuwaiti list gives 26/8 : http://www.alnwady.com/stock/archive/in ... 5-p-1.html
Without local reports it's hard to confirm further, but I'm going with 27/8 for now.

Italian sport newspapers (mainly "Gazzetta dello Sport" and "Corriere dello Sport"), especially in the past years, mentioned World Matches, including the African ones.
The problem, now, is to find them, because most of the "years" are not available on line.
"El Mundo Deportivo" is. And to this purpose I'd like to draw your attention to the Edition of April 9th, 1975, page 4:
Torneo Preolimpico. Honduras-Guatemala 0-0.
http://hemeroteca.mundodeportivo.com/pr ... h=Honduras
The report from Tegucigalpa is dated April 8th (Tuesday). Normally the reports are written same day of the event, but not in this case.
It's obvious that a big attendance could be reached only on Sunday (the 6th). And this is a confirmation that the Match took place on April 6th.
Dates are a hard problem, to compile a correct list of the past Matches.
Now, thank to you and your Team effort, '76OG Qual. subject has been clarified.
It was necessary, because when you go to RSSSF (in particular: North/Central America, International Matches Section) you can still find a very long list of mistakes and discrepancies, under the symbol ogq.

Yes and in Africa and Asia also (particularly for African Nations Cup). This is because at some point in the past, one person made the ridiculous decision to "guess" the unknown dates based on the known dates. I have not found out for 100% sure who that person was, but I can make some guesses... but I decline make accusations based on guesses to avoid hypocrisy.
Anyway, slowly we will undo their mistakes.

In Italy, the most important sports newspapers are La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport. Nowadays, only Corriere dello Sport has an online archive. Unfortunately, it's very difficult to consult, because of many reasons: only few years are available; there aren't any search engines; the files are very “heavy” to download, so every search takes a lot of time; you've always to modify the “url” if you want to consult the day you desire...
As far as I know, the last year available on Corriere dello Sport is 1972, therefore all the data concerning 1976 Olympics aren't online.
On the other hand, I remember that some Italian publications dedicated some attention to the “exotic” football. For example, in the 1980's, the magazine Guerin Sportivo published some interesting lists with all the international matches in Europe, Africa and South America. The yearbook Almanacco Illustrato del Calcio was even better, because every year it published a list of results from every continent. Naturally, I can't guarantee they were 100% correct, anyway it was a good starting point.

With regard to this second leg, I think I've found out the goalscorers for Guatemala. They were: Carlos “Pepino” Toledo and Óscar “Conejo” Sánchez. The source is Laprensa.hn, which seems to be quite reliable.

Yes, and the newspaper "Corriere della Sera", too, published (end of December) the list of International Matches of the year: same list of "Guerin Sportivo".
Then, both of them stopped these publications.
"Almanacco Illustrato del Calcio" ("Panini" editions) is still publishing, year by year, (starting from 1971) the worldwide list of international matches (limited to NT vs NT): very interesting (I agree), but full of mistakes, as I again verified, when making '76 OG Qual. comparison.

It certainly wasn't Pepino that played, unless it was his son. He played in the 1940s.
Of the other players listed in that Guatemala lineup, I don't recognise the names Carlos Morales, Carlos Salazar, or Felipe Borrayo.
Also that link mentions two games in 1983:
25/03/1983 / Tegucigalpa / Honduras 2-1 Mexico Youth
06/04/1983 / San Pedro Sula / Honduras 2-1 Mexico Youth
Mexico's youth team also won 5-0 in Panama (vs Union Espanola), lost 2-1 in San Jose to Sagrada Familia, and played Deportivo Rosa Lilia in Puntarenas (score unknown). Maybe they played other games on this tour, that's all I know.

Yes, you're probably right. Taking a look at some newspapers from those days could be helpful, but I have no idea where to check.
