Yugoslav First League club, Partizan Belgrade, toured Australia in 1979. Partizan played two games against Australia with the first in Newcastle on 29 June and the second at the Sydney Sports Ground on 1 July.
The first match was marred when Australia's Tommy Cumming was decked by a Partizan player. Referee, Jim Reeves, decided to abandon play for 15 minutes after the Partizan bench stormed onto the pitch at half-time to confront him. It took some persuasion from Australian Soccer Federation officials to convince Reeves to continue play and the second-half concluded without any further incidents.
A goal by Aleksandar Trifunovic on 16 minutes had Partizan in front before a penalty-kick, converted by Australia's Gary Cole on 44 minutes, levelled the match. One-all it would stay. Significantly, this would be Socceroos captain Peter Wilson's last international match after 114 appearances for his country.
Partizan would claim victory in Sydney by a goal-to-nil. Zvonko Varga scoring on 47 minutes after coming on a minute before for Milan Djordjevic. This design is a replica of the official match program.
