The title mentions that it was the 32nd CISM tournament! It was a qualifier and the first leg in the UAE ended 1-0 to the home side.

Yes I saw that, but you wrote 1981 above the video, which was the 30th tournament (or 28th if the first two pre-CISM in 1946-7 are not counted), so I thought perhaps the "32" in the title could be wrong.  I was hoping that perhaps on the video commentary some clue of the date (or an approximate one) might appear.

I only put 1981 because the rest of the videos were in sequence on youtube, but its most likely it was 1983 considering the qualifying group in 1981 did not place UAE and Qatar together. I'll have a look for a date for this match.

Thanks, nice work.   For 1983 it seems there were semi-finals of Belgium vs Italy and Algeria vs Kuwait in June 83.  This conflicts with the CISM website which says "In April 1983, the 38th General Assembly of Zurich decided to terminate the ongoing competition and selected Kuwait and Belgium to play the final."  Hmm.

How was it that so many Gulf countries were able to field effectively their full national teams?  Did they just classify all players as having done military service or something?

Kuwait even fielded the Egyptian international Hassan Shehata in one edition...

The regulations for registering teams were lax, then and even now. The Iraqi Army team which won the CISM World Military Cup in 2013 was actually the club Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya (linked to the Ministry of Defence) and military conscription ended in Iraq in 2003 so I don't know how any of the players could be considered army reservists or officers and there were a couple from other Iraqi clubs guesting for the club in the tournament.

Perhaps eligibility is based on players registered with the military football body of each country, and not necessarily on whether those players are actually in the military itself or not.   In other words, players appointed to represent the military...  (not actual soldiers)?

The "April 1983" is according to the CISM website:  http://www.milsport.one/events/cism-world-football-cup    Clearly it is wrong.

That could be it, though the Greek, Italian and Belgian players Iraq played against in these competitions usually featured army conscripts like Paul Van Himst, Wilfried Puis and Can Bartu (full internationals when they were called into the Army team) and the players in those teams were around the age of 19 to 22.That's why I think the tournament organisers were not as stringent on player registration but most teams kept to the rules of playing reservists, conscripts or players linked to the army. This was a big tournament once upon a time and some of these matches were more or less full internationals with the national coaches taking charge of the Army team and top internationals in the army teams as well as international referee officiating the matches. In 1989 Mario Zagallo was managing both the UAE army team and the national side and they both qualified for the World Cup finals!

1954
According to "Voetbaljaarboek 1954", Belgium was automatically qualified for the semi-finals as host, but nonetheless preferred to play in the group with the other Benelux countries and granted the spot in the semi-finals to France.

Edit:
I did some more research and found there originally were two goups:
Group I: Netherlands, Greece, Italy; Group II: Turkey, France, Luxembourg, Belgium (source).
About two weeks later the United States were added to Group I (source).
Early march Portugal entered and new groups were formed:
Group 1: Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg; Group 2: France, United States, Turkey; Group 3: Italy, Greece, Portugal (source). It doesn't say how the fourth semi-finalist was to be decided.
I couldn't find when Egypt entered and replaced France in group 2.

Hmm.  I don't like to guess, but it looks like Egypt's late entry was a prompt to nominate one team (France) to get a bye to the semis, rather than change the format again.

This has (from Walter Verani):
Turkey 2-0 USA: 24.02.62 instead of 21.02.62; Ankara instead of Casablanca 
Morocco 0-0 Turkey: 26.02.62 instead of 25.02.62
I don't know which is correct.
Here are the full results of that group:

I was puzzled by that anyway because Group 3 (of Round 1) contained Spain, France and Morocco apparently in a round-robin, so at what point were Netherlands and Spain to be paired up?

It is not clear to me why this match was played as it seems that both teams would have advanced anyway, unless this was a later decision. 


Greek wikipedia says 15 countries participated, which suggests Morocco and UAR had first round opponents in the draw.  Or maybe that there was another team in the Luxembourg-Belgium group.

That match was in the Challenge Kentish (triangular, France, Belgium, Britain).   Apparently the teams (or one of them) wanted to count the match for both the Challenge Kentish and the CISM but permission was not given by the CISM.

However, in a Luxembourg newspaper I found:
03.06.48  Esch-sur-Alzette Luxembourg    1-6 France         [ground Jeunesse Esch] (not 0-6)
I also found the next military international match, but it doesn't state if it was a friendly or part of the Inter Allied tournament. (Since Norway was not a member at that moment probably not).
16?.06.48              Denmark        8-0 Norway         
(sources: Luxembourg newspapers @ http://www.eluxemburgensia.lu)
From Danish paper "Berlingske Tidende":
The draw for the 1948 semi-finals was Denmark vs Norway, and (winner France-Luxembourg) vs (winner Belgium-Netherlands).   Neither of the results of the two prelims was mentioned in this paper.

Then France beat Luxembourg as in your post, and presumably Belgium got a walkover vs Netherlands (?)

Having checked early 1956 editions, this must have been a mistake.  There was no mention of Luxembourg being in the tournament.

Group D :

I found the Lyon leg was 7th April, but it was not mentioned whether this was the 1st or 2nd leg.   I checked all April and didn't find the Casablanca leg.

Presumably Syria did not play Italy, or Giampaolo would have reported it, but maybe Syria played Belgium?

African group in Round 1 in 1967:

26.02.67 Casablanca    Ivory Coast   2-2 Tunisia        (7-6 corners)
28.02.67 Rabat         Morocco        -  Tunisia        (Morocco reportedly did not win)
04.03.67 Rabat         Morocco       2-0 Ivory Coast

The reports (in an Abidjan newspaper) were a bit confusing (i.e. self-contradictory), so the I don't have full confidence in the precise dates and venues, but this is my best approximation from the combined info.   If anyone can find another reference to this group, please post the adjustments here.

Also, Greek wikipedia says that 15 countries took part in 1967.  If that is correct, then UAR did not have any opponent in the first round, and must have received a bye to the 2nd round from which they later withdrew (without playing).
