Germany vs Croatia football match in Vienna. Before tens of thousands of spectators, at the Vienna's Prater Stadium, the first football game between Germany and Croatia was played, on 15 June 1941. This friendly encounter between the two members of the Axis powers was also the first match of the national football team of Croatia as an independent state. Already in the 16th minute, the Croats were celebrating: 1–0 for Croatia! However, shortly afterwards, the Germans tied the score... then scored another goal... and another... The Independent State of Croatia ended its first football match ingloriously: the national team was defeated with four goals difference (1–5) and, upon returning home, one of the players was shot, for being a member of the KPJ. It was the young Svetozar Džanić, born in Manđelos in Syrmia, a former national player of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Pictured, German striker Hans Fiederer (on the right) shoots at the Croatian goal, which is devotedly defended by Miroslav Brozović (on the left) and goalkeeper Franjo Glaser (on the ground). Already the following year, Fiederer's football career was over: in a bomb attack on the "Pariser Soldatenelf" ("Parisian Soldiers' Eleven", a German soldiers football team, for which he played as a soldier), the famous national player lost his right leg. After the war, Fiederer got a job as a sports editor, while Brozović and Glaser became members of the newly-formed Partisan football club, symbolically named "Partizan" (Brozović played as a defender and captain, and Glaser was the coach and goalkeeper). All other participants of this historical match, apart from the unfortunate Džanić, also survived the war and largely continued their sports careers.

Fudbalska utakmica Nemačka–Hrvatska u Beču. Pred nekoliko desetina hiljada gledalaca, na bečkom Prater-stadionu, 15. juna 1941. godine odigrana je prva fudbalska utakmica između Nemačke i Hrvatske. Ovaj prijateljski susret dveju članica sila Osovine ujedno je bio i prvi meč fudbalske reprezentacije Hrvatske kao nezavisne države. Već u 16. minutu Hrvati su slavili: 1–0 za Hrvatsku! Međutim, nedugo potom, Nemci su rezultat izjednačili... pa dali još jedan gol... i još jedan... Svoju prvu fudbalsku utakmicu Nezavisna Država Hrvatska završila je neslavno: reprezentacija je poražena sa četiri gola razlike (1–5), a po povratku kući jedan od igrača je streljan, zbog članstva u KPJ. Bio je to mladi Svetozar Džanić, rodom iz Manđelosa u Sremu, bivši reprezentativac Kraljevine Jugoslavije. Na slici, nemački napadač Hans Fiderer (desno) šutira na hrvatski gol, koji požrtvovano brane Miroslav Brozović (levo) i golman Franjo Glazer (na zemlji). Već naredne godine Fidererova fudbalska karijera je završena: u jednom bombaškom napadu na "Parisku vojničku jedanaestorku" (nemački vojničko-fudbalski tim, za koji je kao vojnik igrao), poznati reprezentativac je izgubio desnu nogu. Posle rata, Fiderer se zaposlio kao sportski urednik, a Brozović i Glazer su postali članovi novoformiranog partizansko-fudbalskog kluba, simbolično nazvanog "Partizan" (Brozović je igrao kao bek i kapiten, a Glazer je bio trener i golman). Svi ostali učesnici ove istorijske utakmice, osim nesrećnog Džanića, takođe su preživeli rat i većinom nastavili svoje sportske karijere.
