    Wordless for how awesome this is!! Magyarország (Hungary) was marvellous. As for England, I would like to highlight Matthews, he created England's best moments in the game.

    Just guessing how well prepared for the brazilian heat in 1950, would the english team have been. Considering their self sufficient frame of mind at the time.

    More precisely: the pundit commentator is Péter Bozsik, the son of the late Hungary midfielder József Bozsik.

    Pensar que este día se termino la soberbia de Inglaterra ya que decían que eran la mejor selección del mundo por el simple hecho de que ellos inventaron el futbol, incluso no participaron en mundiales por esa misma razon

    Este es el partido más antiguo que tienen?

    El segundo más antiguo. La final de la copa inglesa de 1953 se jugó unos meses antes.

    Quel match merveilleux, découvrir pour la première fois cette équipe hongroise dont j’ai tellement entendu parler .. Les anglais ont étaient Humiliés avec en première mi-temps un arbitre ne trouve abuser qui siffler rien pour la Hongrie et des hors-jeu qui n’existe pas. Enfin bref le numéro 7 et Hidegkuti sont des joueurs magnifiques sans oublier le roi Puskas avec un but inoubliable qui m’a laisser bouche ouverte !

    Hungary destroyed England, good tactics, good quality of players, Sebes is very good coach and it was genius how he surprised England in Wembley! Hidegkuti was very fantastic along side with Puskas, Kocsis, Bozsik and Grosics, the first goal of Puskas was amazing! Unfortunately this team didn't won World Cup and it's very sad there is no full matches for Hungary in WC 54!

    That puskas dribble let the defender down ahahah

    Boszik impressed me! Great player

    They couldn't fathom how to mark Hidegkuti. He was just all over the place, a true false 9 who completly disrupted the English defense.

    I've seen some atrocious offside calls in these older matches, but that one on Hidegkuti (just after the 12-minute mark) takes the cake.

    One of my favourite matches of all time, and I'm English haha. Seriously, how did this Hungarian team never win the World Cup? They would thump West Germany the following year in the group stage and yet lost the final to the same team? Confused. As for England, although they invented the game, they had a lot to learn from the Magical Magyars.

    It's not easy to withstand the pressure of being the "best" team

    Link to the 1954 World Cup final's part in Wikipedia, where it explains how they didn't win:

    1st game watched on Footballia. Going to revisit the game later. Heard the commentator highlighting the unusuall Hungary shirt numbers, as on England shirt numbering was very regimented 1-11

    The comment was related with the positions occupied by the players who wore those numbers in the Hungarian team. In England each number was associated with a certain position. The way the Hungarians were numbered didn´t match with the English positioning. That´s the reason they say it was weird or unusual.

    What a match....! Full of action, especially considering the number of chances created. A game full of talented players.
