Biography

Turek was born in Duisburg.

He started his career at Duisburger Sportverein, but he soon switched to TuS Duisburg 48/99. In 1950 he switched to Fortuna Düsseldorf. Between 1950 and 1954 he played 20 games for the German national team. He played in "The Miracle of Bern" 1954 FIFA World Cup final against Hungary and won the Championship.

His achievements during this game were described by the sports reporter Herbert Zimmermann with the words "Toni, you're a football God".[1] He later had to apologize for that comment because the church complained about the comparison of a football player with God.

Turek died in Neuss in 1984.[1]
