A Czech from Sudetenland, so German speaking, Bruno Pfützner took charge of two qualifier for the 1938 World Cup, but also matches between Eastern European teams. He died in 1961.
- These were historical times: imagine a match between Nazi Germany and Estonia in a stadium named after Horst Wessel in a town called Konigsberg officiated by someone from Sudetenland.
We all know what happened to Nazi Germany and Sudetenland. Estonia got gobbled up by Germany and then the Soviet Union, Konigsberg now is a Russian enclave and Horst Wessel was a Nazi thug killed in 1930 over a row about money (and prostitutes).
