The 1908 Summer Olympics was the first time that national representative teams were contested: football at the two previous games had been played between club teams. Five teams entered, although Hungary and Bohemia withdrew before the start. Denmark's Sophus "Krølben" Nielsen set a record by scoring 10 goals in a 17-1 win against France. The Netherlands won the gold.
