Paul Schweda

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Paul Schweda (born March 5, 1930 - December 20, 2010 ) was an Austrian national soccer player . The goalie was three times Austrian champion with Wiener Austria .


Paul Schweda joined the A-League from Vienna AC in 1949 , where he was the second goalie behind Fritz Nikolai at Austria . As early as 1949/50 he was able to look forward to his first Austrian championship , where he played a total of ten league games. In the following year Paul Schweda was able to establish himself as the goalkeeper of the violets until the second championship season 1952/53 . The international highlight was reaching the semi-finals twice in the Copa Rio , in which he played all matches. During this time, Paul Schweda also made three international appearances for the Austrian national team , including the 0-0 win against Germany in Cologne.

In the following time, the competitive pressure at Austria grew, because now the former handball goalie Julius Ondreiska could at least establish himself alternately as a single goal. Paul Schweda remained loyal to the club until the end of his career in 1961 and experienced the return to the Austrian top with a young team under coach Karl Schlechta . Although Herbert Gartner was brought in as the new goalkeeper during this time , Paul Schweda still plays in the victorious ÖFB Cup final in 1960 against Rapid and four times in his third championship season in 1960/61 .
