The Hungary national football team represents Hungarymarker in international football and is controlled by the Hungarian Football Federation. It has a rich and proud pedigree in the game and a rightful place in football annals as one of the first original footballing nations in continental Europe and an innovator in the sport in the 1950s. In recent times the team's strength has diminished greatly, failing to qualify for any major tournament since 1986. Notable though, is that the country's team qualified for the 2009 Egypt U20 World Cup amd lost 2 games in the whole tournament: their first game against Honduras in the group stages and the semi-final of the tournament against Ghana, to which Hungary lost 2-3. However, they beat Costa Rica in the losing semi-finalists match, which earned them 3rd place in the tournament. Also notable is that the Hungarian team has one of the longest unbeaten runs in international football at 32.

The Golden Team (aka The Magical Magyars)

Hungarian football is best known for being one of the most formidable and influential sides in football history, which revolutionized the play of the game. Centered around the dynamic and potent quartet of strikers Ferenc Puskás, Sándor Kocsis, attacking half-back József Bozsik and withdrawn striker Nándor Hidegkuti, the "Aranycsapat" (Golden Team) of the "Magnificent Magyars", captivated the football world with an exciting brand of play drawn from new tactical nuances and amassed, barring the 1954 World Cup Final, a remarkable record of 43 victories, 7 ties, and no defeats from the 14th of May 1950 to the end of its historic unbeaten run on February 19th 1956. Hungary has the distinction of posting the highest ever Elo football rating of 2173 points in June (1954) along with the second highest with 2153 (1956); surpassing that of Brazil, England, Argentina and Germany in all-time competition.

The Hungarians were runners-up twice in the World Cup, losing to Italy 4–2 in 1938 and 3–2 to West Germany in 1954, despite defeating them 8–3 earlier in the competition. The team, built around the legendary Ferenc Puskás, led early 2–0 in that match, but ended up 3–2 losers in a game the Germansmarker subsequently christened "The Miracle of Bernmarker". Three highly controversial calls surround this final game: firstly when Grosics (the Hungarian goalkeeper) was interfered with in the goal area by Hans Schaefer on the second German goal, second when Puskas apparently equalized the match in the 89th minute only to have the goal disallowed for offside, the third being a blatant foul on Kocsis in the penalty area which would have given Hungary a penalty in the final minute.

Hungary has won gold at the Olympics three times, in 1952, 1964, and 1968. The under-23 team, which was the age limit for Olympic teams, won the UEFA U-23 Championship in 1974. Since the 1976 reshuffle by UEFA, the under-23s are now classified with the under-21s.

Records

The match between Austria and Hungary in Viennamarker in 1902 was the first international match played between two non-British European countries.

Hungary was the first team from outside the United Kingdommarker and Irelandmarker to beat England at home, famously winning 6–3 at Wembleymarker on November 25, 1953. Six months later they beat England 7–1 in 1954, this time in Budapestmarker. This still ranks as England's record defeat.

The trainer responsible for gelling together the elements of the Hungarian side on the 1950s, Gusztáv Sebes holds the highest ratio of victories per game past 30 matches with 72.06% (49 wins, 12, draws, 7 defeats). Brazil great Vicente Feola (1955-1966) owns the second highest with 71.88% (46 wins, 12 draws, 6 defeats).

Hungary owns records for quality in offensive throughput in a single World Cup finals competition. Football historians often relate to the 27 goals (5.4 gls / game) and a goal differential of +17 as records likely never to be passed in the more preventive modern game. Sandor Kocsis, along with his record seven hat tricks in the international game, owns the single World Cup finals competition's record with 2.2 goals/match.

Hungary has a unique distinction for setting the strongest Elo football rating ever recorded with 2173 points (June 1954) to add to the second highest of 2156 in 1956. Brazil national football team owns the 2nd highest with 2153, and Argentina national football team with 2117 is third.

Undefeated run

Hungary, with its this master narrative of being undefeated in the 1950s also broke one of football's timeless benchmarks being first to eclipse an 1888 Scotland national football team record of being undefeated in 22 consecutive matches. They bettered the old mark by nine additional games to 31. Hungary holds the third longest consecutive run of matches unbeaten with 31 international games between 14 May 1950 and 4 July 1954, when they lost the World Cup final to Germany.

Spain holds the longest string of 35 unbeaten matches (from 2006 till 2009), which recently ended at the hands of the United States, whom defeated Spain 2–0 in the 2009 Confederations Cup semi-final of the in South Africa on June 24, 2009 - breaking Hungary's record after 55 years.



After the Golden Team

Hungary remained a force in European football for two to three decades after the era of the "Magnificent Magyars". Reaching the quarter-finals of both 1962 and 1966 World Cups, Hungary was blessed with a dazzling array of talent including Ferenc Sipos, Lajos Tichy, Ferenc Bene, Flórián Albert, János Farkas, Gyula Rákosi, Zoltán Varga, János Göröcs, Károly Sándorand Máté Fenyvesi. They also reached the semi-finals of the European Championship in 1964 and 1972.

Returning to the World Cup in 1978 and 1982, Hungary did not reach the same heights but nonetheless performed respectably—indeed, the talents of László Fazekas, Tibor Nyilasiand László Kissinspired Hungary to a 10–1 win over El Salvador in 1982, which remains a World Cup record.The 1986 World Cup is seen by many fans as the final confirmation of Hungary's decline. Expectations were very high, but poor performances in defeats to the Soviet Union and France were a bitter blow, despite the presence of talent like Lajos Détári. Since then, Hungary has continued to produce fine individual talent- notably Béla Illésand Krisztián Lisztes– but further success as a team has eluded them.

Most recently, in Euro 2004qualifiers, Hungary found themselves within sight of qualification with two games remaining, but was scuppered by defeats to Latvia and Poland.

With the appointment of Erwin Koemanthe Hungarians had high hopes for the 2010 World Cupqualifiers. However, a good start turned to a disappointing finish with Hungary ending up fourth in Group One after Denmark, Portugal and Sweden.

Modern times

Today, Hungary are a lesser force and haven't qualified for a World Cupsince 1986, or for the European Championship finalssince 1972.

In the World Cup 2006 qualifiersthey finished fourth after Croatia, Sweden and Bulgaria. The Euro 2008 qualifiersdid not provide much cheer, as they ended sixth in their group, even dropping a match to unfancied Malta. On August 22, 2007, they surprisingly upset world champions Italy in a friendly game, beating them 3–1 at Puskás Ferenc Stadiummarker in Budapestmarker.This resulted in Hungary becoming the Unofficial Football World Champions.
