France 1938 – The Quarterfinals

Italy team 1938On quarterfinal receive expected results and things start to be arranged: 1. Hungary-Switzerland – 2:0. Easy game for Hungary. They even do not bend very much. 2. Sweden-Cuba – 8:0. Ah, what the Swedes were lucky at this World Championship! Not long that quarterfinals not have played and 1 seconds, but here they fell at the lightest competitor. Especially given that Cuba’s been squeezed up those 210 minutes of unparalleled world football glory in their history, the 1/8 finals. Say “unparalleled” and really should say “eternal” because Cuba is the first and last part of the football World Cup. Well, at least while I’m alive! (I like to joke grandfather Lord, I ask if it will become a normal country, and he turn away: “I happen will happen! But I do not know whether I am alive!”). 3. Italy-France – 3:1. This game will remain in history with demonstrated for the first time “reverse scissors” – famous impact of Silvio Piola, which to this day is called “a’la Piola. Whether the victory was due to the strong play of adzurite “or rather the result of domestic kindness” to “cocks”? This time will tell. 4. Brazil-Czechoslovakia – 1:1 sl.pr. and 2:1. Brazil 2 matches they need to break resistance of Czechoslovakia. Particularly contested is the first in a fantastic Planichka directly distinguished their opponents. Unfortunately he, like Zamora before 4 years, breaks his hand in a desperate jump extensions at the end of the “carioca”, although playing with 9 new players in the second game is a little easier.
