August Jordan (21 February 1909 – 17 May 1990) was an Austrian, then French football midfielder, who became a coach after his playing career.
Born in Austria as August Jordan, he moved to France in 1933 and became French in 1938. His integration to France national football team during World War II was highly discussed because he was not a born and bred French, moreover an Austrian. However, Jordan was always fully dedicated and proud to wear the blue shirt of France. He was a participant for them at the 1938 FIFA World Cup. This integration caused him to be jailed by the Wehrmacht during the war. In France, he was nicknamed Gusti and the baby from Linz.
