Desmond was also a member of the Ireland team that defeated England 2–0 at Goodison Park, becoming the first non-UK team to beat England at home. Ireland took the lead in the 33rd minute when Desmond, after collecting a pass from Tommy O'Connor, was brought down in the England penalty area; Con Martin then converted the subsequent penalty kick. Desmond made just two more international appearances for Ireland. They came on 9 October 1949 in a 1-1 draw with Finland and on 13 November 1949 in 3-1 defeat to Sweden. Both these games were World Cup qualifiers. (en)
