Battle of Bordeaux (football)
The match was drawn 1-1 after 90 minutes of full time, with Czechoslovakia equalizing with a penalty. The match eventually ended 1-1 after extra time.
Due to the lax refereeing of Hungarian Paul Hertza , the match is best remembered for a series of brutal fouls by both sides. Both Brazilians Machado and Zezé Procopio as well as Czech Jan Riha were sent off. Captain Frantisek Planicka and Oldrich Nejedlý from Czechoslovakia suffered a broken right arm and right leg respectively in the mayhem. Their teammate Josef Kostalek was injured in the stomach. Three other Brazilians, including Leônidas and Perácio , had to leave the field with injuries.
