World Cup

2009-09-07

When the 1934 World Cup quarter-final Italy-Spain ended 1-1 after extra time it had to be replayed and Rene Mercet got the job to referee. He openly favoured the Italians, by for instance disallowing two Spanish goals, and was never assigned an international match again

Mercet's semi-final of the 1932 Mitropa Cup was upgraded to the final after riots broke out during the other semi-final (Slavia-Juventus) which had to be abandoned.
