Expulsions: Karel Steiner (39.)
When Belgium opened the score at 6 minutes, Prague goalkeeper Rudolf Klapka had safely caught the ball, but was knocked down by an onrushing Belgian player and dropped the ball in falling. There was a ceowd and before Klapka could get up again, Belgium tried to score a goal, but a Czechoslovak defender stopped the ball with his hand, whereupon the referee awarded Belgium a penalty. Czechoslovakia protested – not the penalty, but because their goalkeeper had been illegally rushed. The English referee, however, stood by his decision.
* Czechoslovakia refused to accept full-back Karel Steiner being sent off and left the pitch in protest (also because of the fanatic spectators). The match was abandoned at 39 minutes. The IOC then stripped Czechoslovakia of the silver medal. (link: )
