NOTE: No third-place match. However some sources, notably the FIFA Bulletin from 1984, affirm that the match occurred (JUG-USA 3:1)! Quite inexplicable, if you ask me - there was no third-place match arranged for, as indeed it has been at the previous Olympic Games. It was introduced for the first time in 1934.
