Assists: - ---------------------------------- "I'm glad that my twenty-four years of presidential work ended with such a beautiful match. Hungarian footballers were defeated as a true sportsman" - Jules Rimet "When we made a break, I first thought that we could win this match" - Fritz Walter. "That's football. The Hungarians could not take advantage. In both of my shots, I felt that only the net was able to kick the ball" - Helmut Rahn We won against one of the best teams in the world" - Sándor Kocsis. Grosics was in good form. The wet ball was always securely held. his fingers succeeded. He made a single big mistake.The second goal of the Germans, he was badly placed at the corner kick. The ball passed over his head. Of course, it would be wrong to conclude from this mistake that he was the defeat of the Hungarian team. Buzánszky played an excelente match. He was the best player in the defense. He saved a lot of times in a distressed position with both feet and head. He fought with great enthusiasm, crossed fast, neutralized the dangerous Schaffer. Buzánszky played his best match in the FIFA World Cup 1954 for sure. Lóránt fought a lot of attacks, but was not enough to stop the Germans. Lantos played well in the first half as he was at the same level as he was accustomed to in the previous World Cup matches. After a pause, however, he was tired of fatigue, he gradually fell back, unable to hold fast Rahn. Bozsik played great in the first half. Almost over the field. He was brilliantly fitted, but in the second half he did not play well and then there was no good connection between the defense and the attack line as in the previous matches. Zakariás succeeded in attacking but did not defend well, the plays that he made were good and the attack could do great with that, but in the second half he played a badly game. Czibor was tired, nervous. he played weakly, could not be explosive. His tricks and shootings rarely succeeded, and he made mistakes in the overall game. He was more comfortable in his left-wing position. However, his play did not improve significantly either. Kocsis proved to be the best striker. He worked a lot in the field as well. Hidegkuti did not fit the wings properly, he was slowing down the attacks. Did not play a good match. Puskas usual style of play did not match. He scored two goals, one of them was not awarded by the referee. Mihály Tóth did everything to win. After Kocsis, he was the best on hungary's side. He played a lot in defense, he played much better on both sides than Czibor. ARFTS Man of the Match: Helmet Rahn (West Germany).
