Anton Schall Wikipedia
Anton Schall (22 June 1907 – 10 August 1947) was an Austrian football forward who played for Austria in the 1934 FIFA World Cup. He also played for Admira Vienna, and later managed FC Basel. Normally a versatile left footed forward or winger, Schall is considered one of the greatest Austrian footballers. A pacy, skillful forward, Schall possessed fine finishing and great attacking intelligence. Later in his career Schall played as a defender.
After his playing career Schall, who suffered from a rare heart condition, moved to Switzerland and took over Basel as club trainer in the 1946–47 season. Schall led Basel to win the Swiss Cup, 3 – 0 in the final against Lausanne Sports. But he died shortly afterwards at the age of 40 years during a workout on the football field. Team captain Ernst Hufschmid then took Basel over as coach.
