The first football team was a team Isidro Langar
schools 'Bildur Gucci' his hometown Pasahes, which is located near San Sebastian
. As a teenager he went to study at a time turner and moved the football on the second plan.
Interest in the game livened up with Isidro in the age of 16, when the uncle took him to San Sebastian. Tam boy enlisted in the 'Esperanza' - teams that play in the second league of the Basque province of Gipuzkoa.
In 18 years Langar
BOAD military service, defining the Army command 'Tolosa', based in the eponymous town of the same province. 'Tolosa' competed in the third obscheispanskom division.
A year later, demobilized, he got in Oviedo - the capital of the province of Asturias. Parish of Langar
in a local club almost coincided with the renaming of the local club. With proclaim the Spanish Republican government 14 April 1931 the word 'Real' (Royal) in its title subject to revocation, . and the club became just 'Oviedo' (later the highest permission of Generalissimo Franco's original name was restored).,
. 'Oviedo', speaking at the time of arrival of Langar
in the second division, immediately gave him in my arms 4 thousand pesetas, and then monthly pay him 500
. 1931/32 season the team finished in second place, which was not enough to move up. But the talented young man noticed and brought to the team for the match against Yugoslavia, which is just in Oviedo 24 April 1932 and held. Langar
19-year-old opened the scoring and helped the Spaniards to win 2:1, but he had to wait two years before he will call again in the national team.
. In the season 1932/33 'Oviedo' made his way to the big leagues, and Langar
became the most successful scorer of the second division
. In three successive draws, he excelled in goals and in elite company, and gave approximately the same result - 27 goals, then 26 and again 27.
. 'Oviedo' possessed by the five attacks Kasuko - Gallarta - Langar
- Errerita - Emilin, which was once very popular and went into the history of Spanish football nicknamed Electrisa (electric)
. A Frontline quintet paid tribute special praise. Langar
very nature ordered to be a central attacker, because he was endowed with everything: excellent physical strength, and determination to strike on goal from any position and distance, and game intelligence, intuition and helps. Perhaps only in technology, he did not belong to the most exquisite stuntman. But this is compensated in full its other virtues.
March 11, 1934 Langar
was returned to the team. And he said this event five goals in World Cup qualifying match with Portugal (9:0). This was the first penta-tricks history of the tournament. A return match in Lisbon has become a formality, but Langar
and there showed a voracious appetite and two balls of Spain brought another victory (2:1).
. The same number from him and then got Brazilians - the first opponents of Spain in the final part mundialya
. Dangerous rival was eliminated with a score of 3:1, but more serious was waiting for the Spaniards in the quarterfinals - 'skuadra Azzurro', which as the hosts frantically helped judge.
. If the account 1:1 for five minutes before the end of normal time Langar
head sent the ball into the net of the Italians, but no matter how clean it was, in principle, the Belgian judge was not going to count a goal, as well as pay attention to the rudeness of 'skuadry'
. Seven Spanish players, including Langar
, were unable to enter the replay, which - again with the outrageous refereeing - brought the victory of Italy (1:0).
. His last, 12 th game for the team Isidro held May 3, 1936 by sending a 'duty' a couple of balls Swiss
. It was him from the race just some 24 years, erupted in the Spanish Civil War abruptly changed the entire follow-football activities Langar
Sporting life in much of Spain ordered to live long
is back in the Basque Country, . where his friend and former colleague on the national team of Spain Luis Regueiro the idea to combine the best of Basque football players, . not resigned to the advent of the Franco, . - Gregorio Blasco, . Leonardo Silaurrena, . Guillermo Gorostiza, . PedroAreso and others.,
joined the troupe, called 'Euskadi', which translated from Basque and means 'Basque Country'
. All these players were the color of Spanish football at the time, so the class 'Euskadi' was very high, and it is not surprising that its performance in European countries (including the USSR) was short, usually triumph.
. The first leg of his lengthy European tour 'Euskadi' held April 26, 1937 in Paris with the local 'Resingom' and won 3:0
. Then there were matches in Czechoslovakia, Poland, the Soviet Union, Finland, Norway, Denmark, and so it continued until August. Our viewers could full appreciate the skill of Langar
: he scored exactly half goals (16 of 32) during the Soviet part of the tour 'Euskadi'.
Then again, the Basques arrived in Paris. In Europe, they have not manage to make such charges for what they expected. Due to financial problems of the ranks 'Euskadi' began to thaw: Gorostiza and Roberto went to seek his fortune in the so-called 'free zone' of Spain. 'Resing' proposed contract captain wandering troupe Luis Regueiro, from which he too could not refuse.
. 'Euskadi' decided to go overseas - in Mexico City, where a colony of Spanish refugees (mostly of Basques and Catalans), there were already several thousand people and has continued to increase rapidly
. Just before the departure of their ship on a flight from Le Havre to New York, the team once again joined Regueiro, who broke with the 'Resingom', playing for him just two matches.
. In Mexico, where 'Euskadi' transit through Cuba landed in November 1937, Langar
quickly became everyone's favorite
. Mexicans liked his game and in particular his ability to score often and much. However, he succeeded because he has always assisted by such assistants as Regueiro, Jose Iraragorri and EmilioAlonso.
. From November 1937 to January 1938, the first Basques held in Mexico 20 with the balance of friendly matches: 15 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses
scored 20 from 73 balls. Further route was planned in the South American countries - Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Argentina. But these governments sympathetic to Franco and was not allowed 'Euskadi' to a single match in their territory, not including the two held in the Chilean Valparaiso. This fact again sharply worsened its financial condition. Only the Basque colony in Mexico City was ready to provide material support to this 'vagrants', . and, . advantage loyal to his attitude on the part of Mexican authorities, . They returned to the city in September 1938, . to spend another 10 matches.,
. Then 'Euskadi' said to the championship of Mexico under the name 'Selekson Baska' ( 'squad Basque'), where, as expected, immediately seized the leadership
. Financial patronage over it took Angel Urrasa, Basque industrialist, who organized in Mexico car company 'Goodrich-Euskadi'. Langar
and partners were in the form of a white-green color.
. Basques, no doubt, would have won the league title, if in April 1939 did not leave the team would take nine players who received lucrative offers from clubs in Argentina
. Blasco, Emilin Silaurren and went to 'River Plate', Ares, and Fernando Garcia - in 'Velez Sarsfield'. AL hangar with Zubieta enlisted in 'San Lorenzo'.
. In Argentina, where soccer was fully professional, while the salaries of players in several times higher than those that occurred in Mexico since prevailed in her poluprofessionalizmom.
. Bloodless 'Selekson Baska' somehow finished the championship, but the accumulation of points it was enough to take second place
. In fact, it and ceased to exist. However, many of those who defected to Argentina, there have held out for a long time, then returned to Mexico and settled in it before the end of his days.
Debut of Langar
in the Championship of Argentina has surpassed all expectations. He fell to his first match for the 'San Lorenzo' (May 21 1939) on the now-defunct stadium 'Boedo' immediately against Grand - 'River Plate'. But the club's Uruguayan goalkeeper Besutstso Nunki pulled out of his net after his smashing blows for some 28 minutes four goals! Langar
off the bat overshadowed all goleadorov Argentine league, which is only there were. For there the inchady became a full revelation of the emergence of such inveterate zabivaly, which they had previously never heard of.
Argentines struck by the perfection to which Langar
brought bombardirskoe case. And because it coincided with his crystal integrity, discipline and correct in relation to competitors and judges, it became regarded as a national hero, an idol.
. In 1940 Langar
was headed for a couple of Paraguayans dolphin Benitez list of scorers in the league
. In 1941-mi 1942-m 'San Lorenzo' with it became 'subkampeonom', skipping forward only 'River Plate'. Between his debut and unexpected return to Mexico in early 1943 Langar
missed only one game his club calendar.
In January-February 1942 'San Loren-with' toured Mexico, having played there for 10 matches. Isidro was made in nine of them and scored 23 goals - more than half of the total number of team goals (42). Mexicans welcomed him with unusual warmth and almost coddled. Touched by this attitude, Langar
said that he was pleased to return to the land of the Aztecs, if only he put the same salary as in Buenos Aires
The return took place a year later, and in the newly created club 'Real Espaц¦a'. Langar
with Silaurrenom persuaded old friends 'Euskadi' Blasco, Acedo, Irara, Gorrie, Emilina, Muguersu and others come together again under a new label.
. 'Real Espaц¦a' has been enlisted in the Mexican League, and of course at once, as before 'Euskadi', became its leader
to build on the impact. In contrast, in the 1945/46 season, has 34 years of age, he won the competition scorers with a very high rate - 40 goals. In a match with the 'Monterrey' he scored seven goals, setting a record of the Mexican League, which holds to this day.
Meanwhile, in Europe the war ended. Franco issued a decree on amnesty athletes who did not make political statements. Langar
fell under him and under the same decree, had the right to return to a club to which belonged until 1936, which was done, returning to 'Oviedo' exactly 10 years after the self-imposed exile.
. For the club and the whole of Spanish football's return is an event of great significance
. But the media, obedient Franco regime, deliberately bypassed his silence: although active opposition to Franco players 'Euskadi' did not have, their attitude was very definite and known.
. In 1946 Langar
was still in great shape and even received an invitation to Spain squad
. His return to it prevented the two factors, superimposed on each other - trauma and sudden failure of a friendly match with Hungary.
In the season 1947/48 Isidro ugorazdilo get seriously injured in the first round. Because of this, he began to fall into the casual - a total of nine times. But they scored 7 goals - the last of his career - just the place and allowed him a unique record Langar
brought her an asset in the championship of Spain up to 105 balls (90 matches). Previously, he scored 110 in the Argentinian championship match of 121 and 121 in 76 matches of the Mexican. Thus, his name has been on the 'Club 100 heads' of three national leagues.
Average performance, shown Langar
(1.17) - the fifth in the history of world football. With more than he, the frequency score in the national championships only Portuguese Fernando Peyroteu (1,68), Czech, Josef Bican (1,52) and Imre Schlosser (1,31) and Ferenc Deц¦k (1,28).
. During the second round of the season 1947/48 36-year-old Langar
announced the completion of his career and went to Mexico for business purposes: there he started his restaurant business
. From 1950 to 1955 he headed the club 'Puebla', and then focused on the restaurant, from time to time by agreeing to practice amateur teams.
. In 1982, during the World Cup in Spain, local federations to rehabilitate him and helped him honors
. This gesture prompted Langar
spend the rest of his life in his native country. He died in 1992 at the age of 80 in Oviedo.
