The 1934 World Cup is considered one of the most controversial in the history of the tournament. Held in Italy as Benito Mussolini’s fascists were looking to cement control over the country and drive forward their idea of nationalism, it was used as a unique propaganda tool. Dubious refereeing, an influx of non-Italians to the national team, and dodgy organisation were just a few of the incidents. And away from the pitch, things were even more extreme.
