That day came to British soil selection Hungary led by players like Puskas, Kocsis, Czibor and Bozsik among others. All directed by coach Gustav Sebes which he gambled on a totally offensive football with a total attack.
At that time the British considered themselves superior to the other selections. Being the inventors of this sport made me think that they were a step above the rest and that no one could play better football than them. logically, They were wrong.
Proof of what we are saying is that the British were not present years ago in the first championships of the world as they felt that rivals would not be at its height.
"That game changed my way of thinking. We believed them to be teachers and students and went to the back. We not know anyone, not even Puskas. We face Martians. We demolished "
This arrogance cost them face that November day in Wembley.

We not know anyone, not even Puskas. We face Martians. We demolished ".
DOUBLE THE HUMILIATION OF HUNGARY TO ENGLAND
Anecdotally say that the Hungarian combined jumped to the pitch with the numbers changed. It was established that the dorsal usually each player indicate its position on the pitch but visitors also innovated in this to confuse even more to his rival.
In this way the goals were falling for visitors. The first half ended with a resounding 2-4 for Hungarians. In the second fell two and thanks to complete the 3-6 definitive. The defeat stung while England sought revenge on Hungary. This time the result was 7-1 for the team Puskas and company.
