When Ireland met England (0:2) in Belfast on March 5, 1892, Ireland were awarded a penalty, but "Sam" Torrans had his shot saved by England goalkeeper William Rowley (Stoke FC), who also held "Billy" Dalton's follow-up shot. No goals had been scored yet when the referee awarded the first penalty in the history of full "A" internationals. Since outside left John Peden already left the field at 15 minutes due to a knee injury and "Nat" McKeown also was injured after changing ends, Ireland played out the remainder of the match with only 9 (!) men on the field.
