The knockout format of the 1934 World Cup tournament meant that Brazil, Argentina and the United States only played one match each after their transatlantic voyages.
Here is an action shot from the Brazil v Spain match played at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, Genoa (27.05.34). Leônidas da Silva shooting wide, watched by Ricardo Zamora.
Brazil were 3-0 down in half an hour, Leônidas announced himself with a 55th minute strike. Brazil were awarded a penalty in the 62nd minute, but Zamora, playing in his 43rd international, saved from Waldemar de Brito.

Italy 1934

0
0













































1934 was year 12 (XII) of the fascist era in Italy and the visual language of fascism figured strongly in the presentation of the tournament.
The monumental player (who is reminiscent of Il Duce himself) stands with his arm raised, on a pedestal that features a fasces-like object.
There was no way that Italy were not going to win the World Cup in 1934. They benefited from some dubious refereeing. The shame is that this detracted from the real qualities of the players and the genius of coach Vittorio Pozzo and his innovative Metodo.





Celtic's 62 game unbeaten run

0
0

On November 13th 1915 Celtic were defeated 2-0 by Heart of Midlothian at Tynecastle. The following week they beat Kilmarnock 2-0 at Celtic Park. This was the beginning of a 62 match unbeaten run.  















So, the story of this remarkable run begins and ends with Kilmarnock:

CELTIC BEATEN AT LAST
Kilmarnock accomplished at Parkhead on Saturday what they nearly achieved at home a few weeks ago; they are the first to defeat Celtic in the present League campaign, and thus put an end to a sequence of victories extending from the middle of December, 1915, until the pr.esent time. It was fitting that a team renowned for consistency should be defeated by opponents who have been more consistent than any other team when opposing the champions. If Sinclair were slightly at fault in the first game in allowing McMenemy to equalise when but three minutes remained for play, Kilmarnock’s regular custodian made no such mistake in the return engagement. The shooting of the Celtic forwards was not particularly deadly, and it was in leaving his goal to deal with corner kicks almost innumerable that Blair excelled. The winners were somewhat fortunate to score as they did twice in the first half, doubly so to find their opponents miss opportunities much more frequent and less difficult. But the losers had no room for complaint, save on their own incapacity at goal. They were at home, on a perfect pitch, with wind and sun minor and equal handicaps to both teams. The winners goals were scored before the interval, so there was nothing of a snatch victory about Kilmarnock’s successful venture. The mistake made by McNair in passing back to his goalkeeper would not have been fatal had the home forwards shown their usual judgement and taken advantage of much better openings that fell to Smith and Culley. The pity is that the champions’ first defeat was incurred in their last home engagement; a reverse at an earlier stage would have enlivened a competition that has long ceased to attract by reason of its being a competition in name only.

Colombes, 06.05.34
FC Sete beat L'Olympique de Marseille 2-1 to win the Coupe de France.
Sete also secured the championnat de France de football 1933-1934, becoming the first team in French football to do the double.
The feat is celebrated in the club's present name- FC Sète 34.

There was an international flavour to the successful squad. Joseph Hillier was English, Marcel Bukovi (originally Marton Bukovi) and Istvan Lukacs were Hungarian. Club captain Yvan Bek came from Yugoslavia and winger  Ali Benouna was Algerian.


 Istvan Lukacs scored both Sete's goals in the cup final and was also the leading scorer in the league with 28 goals

In The Cambridge Companion to Football (2013) Peter Stead refers to D.H Lawrence as the only great modern British novelist from a working class background .

In his 1913 story Strike Pay, Lawrence describes a group of striking miners walking to Nottingham to watch Notts County play Aston Villa on a Wednesday afternoon. 

It was a good match between Notts and Villa — no goals at half-time, two-none for Notts at the finish. The colliers were hugely delighted, especially as Flint, the forward for Notts, who was an Underwood man well known to the four comrades, did some handsome work, putting the two goals through.

Notts played Villa in a rearranged League match on Wednesday March 13th, 1912. 
Billy Flint was indeed from Underwood. He was a versatile player who represented County 408 times (1908-26).
Whereas Lawrence has Flint as the scorer of both goals, former Villa player Billy Matthews was the scorer of the second. Notts went from 15th to 14th in Division 1 as a result of this win, Villa were 6th.
The return match 3 days later saw Villa win 5-1.
