Edmund Conen


Edmund Conen's career was divided into two halves; 1934-1935 and 1939-42. The Saarbrücken forward made his debut as a 19 year old, scoring twice against Hungary. His next international came at the World Cup in Italy, where he scored 3 goals in 20 minutes to give Germany victory over Belgium.
Up to September 1935 Conen played in 14 internationals, scoring 14 goals (including a further 2 hat tricks).
Conen then vanished from top class football for the best part of 4 years.
He was suffering from a mental disorder which was characterized by a somatic preoccupation with his heart, believing himself to be seriously ill.
Remarkably he recovered to go on to an equally prolific 'second' career- scoring 13 goals in 13 internationals.

X won after a chaotic situation- their final game with Barcelona saw the referee belatedly changing his mind after awarding Barca a penalty which they had scored! This took the score back from 3-3 (Barca as champions) to 3-2 (X as champions). The dispute was resolved by the arrangement of a winner takes all playoff match that X won by 3-1.

Football Associació de Catalunya was a dissident league. It must be considered a failure as Barcelona FC provided 3 of the 6 teams and then the season was not completed.
