Who was Edward Madejski?

Edward Dominik Jerzy Madejski was a Polish football goalkeeper and chemistry engineer, who was a graduate of Mining-Metallurgic Academy in Kraków.

For most of his career, Madejski was a goalie of Wisła Kraków; in 11 games for the Polish national football team, letting 33 goals into his net. His debut in white-red Polish jersey took place on September 6, 1936 in Belgrade. The last game in which he represented Poland was held in Dublin, on November 13, 1938.

Madejski was famous for participating in one of the most interesting matches in history of Polish soccer. On June 5, 1938 in Strasbourg, France Poland lost 5-6 to Brazil. It is interesting since at that time Madejski was banned from playing in any Polish Soccer League teams, so for a year he was not associated with any club.

During the Second World War Madejski participated in various illegal soccer tournaments. Arrested by the Gestapo, he spent a few months in the death row.
