Born in Yugoslavia and emigrated to Australia in 1955 (or '59), Anton Boskovic took charge of a match in the 1982 and 1974 World Cup. He was an Australian national referee between 1960 and 1982 and held his FIFA badge between 1965 and 1982.

Sometimes Boskovic's name is written with a c: Boscovic.
There is surprisingly little material about what must be Australia's best referee ever, even a site called "Australian hall of fame" has forgotten about him and the Australian FA never ever answers our questions.
