GAME SUMMARY

In an olympic final full of incidents, Belgium and Czechoslovakia could only play 39 minutes before the game was abandoned when the Czech players walked off the pitch as a way of protest against the refereeing and the safety conditions in the stadium. The Centroeuropeans had already expressed their discontent with the selection of the referee, the Englishman John Lewis, because he had been the victim of violence at a match in Prague and they feared he could be prejudiced against them.

 

The game started nevertheless, and after only six minutes Belgium took the lead thanks to a penalty shot converted by Coppée. The Czechs complained bitterly for what they thought had been a harsh call, and from that moment on the game degenerated into an ugly brawl, with constant fouls, interruptions and protests. When Larnoe scored the second Belgian goal in minute 30, the situation got even worse, with a very hostile crowd threatening to overrun the military safety line around the pitch. Then, six minutes from halftime, left back Steiner was sent off after kicking Coppée’s stomach and the situation got out of hands: the Czech player refused to walk off the pitch, which infuriated the fans, and the rest of his teammates abandoned the game in protest for what they considered a biased refereeing. Given the menacing attitute of the local crowd and the Belgian soldiers, the Czechs could not be conviced to return to the pitch, and the game was finally abandoned.

ATTENDANCE: 1.500

REFEREE: Giovanni Mauro (ITA)

GOALS: 0-1 (Dahl 28’); 1-1 (Belauste 51’); 2-1 (Acedo 80’)

[Incidents: The original game was scheduled for 30-08-1920, but after Sweden’s withdrawal the day before it was cancelled and the Spanish players decided to treat themselves to a night banquet organized by King Albert I of Belgium. After a pantagruelian dinner, spirits and cigars included, the news came that Sweden had re-considered their decision and continued in the tournament, meaning that the intoxicated Spanish players would have to play the next day. Now it’s the Spaniards who complained heavily, as they had had no rest or preparation for the match against Sweden. Finally, the Olympic committee reached the Solomonic decision to play two days later, on November 1st. FIFA tallies the last Spanish goal in minute 53. Wicksell missed a penalty shot (min. 87).]
