[Incidents: Laudon had to leave the game in minute 64 due to injury. FIFA credits Villanueva and Lolo Fernández with goals 3 and 4 of Peru (respectively). During extra-time, a group of Peruvian fans invaded the pitch and attacked the Austrian players, as a result of which one of them was injured and Austria had to play with only ten men for the rest of the game (players substitutions were not regulated in football yet). After the Austrian protest at the end of the game, FIFA’s Jury of Appeal cancelled the score and ordered a replay match two days later behind closed doors. Following orders of President Óscar Benavides, the Peruvian football team (together with the rest of the Olympic contingent) withdrew from the Games in disagreement with this ruling, and Austria received a w.o.]

GAME SUMMARY

Italy, in the middle of one of their most glorious periods (they had won the World Cup in 1934 and would do the same again in 1938), grabbed the gold medal in the olympic football tournament even though on this occasion they competed with amateur players, instead of their renowned professionals such as Luis Monti, Giuseppe Meazza or Giovanni Ferrari. Their rivals in the final, Austria, proved to be a worthy opponent, and both teams amused the 85,000 fans who gathered in Berlin’s Olympic Stadium with an excellent football game (although excessively violent during some periods).

 

The defenses overcame the attacks during the first half, and neither Italy nor Austria were able to undo the deadlock (although the best opportunities to score befell the Italians). Midway the second half, the Italian right winger Annibale Frossi (remarkable for wearing a headband and glasses during the games) opened the score after picking up a ball deflected by the Austrian goalkeeper Edi Kainberger. This goal seemed all that Italy needed to control the game until the end and thwart the few attacks that the Austrian team could muster, but the inside-left Karl Kainberger equalized ten minutes before regulation with a somewhat lucky shot and the game was sent into extra-time. Only two minutes into the additional period, however, the opportunistic Frossi scored the winner after picking up another rebound ball, and the exhausted Austrians were unable to crack their opponent’s defense in the remaining minutes.
