About Slavin Cindrić

  • Slavin Cindric (10 August 1901 – 29 April 1942) was a Yugoslav footballer.
  • He was born in Timisoara. Cindric was one of the few players who had spells with all three Zagreb-based clubs which were prominent in the interwar period - Concordia, Gradanski and HAŠK.
  • With Gradanski he won three Yugoslav championships, in 1923, 1926 and 1928, and appeared in the 1928 Mitropa Cup quarter-finals. He is mainly known for being the first player to score a hat-trick for Yugoslavia in a friendly game against Bulgaria held on 30 May 1926.
  • After being 1–0 down at half-time, Cindric came on as a substitute for Stevan Luburic and scored three goals in the 75th, 83rd and 87th minute at what is today Stadion Maksimir.
  • This proved to be his only goals in his international career which saw him earn five caps for Yugoslavia, including his debut in Yugoslavia's first ever international game, a 7–0 defeat versus Czechoslovakia on 28 August 1920 (he was one of four Croats who appeared in the game, alongside Dragutin Vrduka, Rudolf Rupec and Artur Dubravcic). Cindric was called up to represent the country for the 1920 (other Croats in the roster were Dragutin Vrduka, Rudolf Rupec, Artur Dubravcic, Vjekoslav Župancic, Jaroslav Schiffer, Dragutin Vragovic, Emil Perška and Josip Šolc), 1924 and 1928 Summer Olympics and he also played 13 games for Zagreb XI in the period between 1920 and 1928.
