Hungary at the World Cup
- The attendance at a play-off match on 17 June 1958 between Wales and Hungary was only 2,823, due to a boycott to show their sympathy to the Hungarian rebellion army leader who had been executed one day before the match.
- When Hungary played West Germany in the 1954 Final, they were unbeaten in 29 matches in four years (including the Olympic Games). Their undefeated streak crashed when they lost 3-2 to the Germans. The Hungarian national team of the 50's, nicknamed 'The Magical Magyars', are regarded as one of the greatest teams in the history of soccer.
- Hungary holds the record for the highest thrashings - beating El Salvador 10-1 in 1982 and South Korea 9-0 in 1954.
- The fastest hat-trick in World Cup history was made by Hungary's Laszlo Kiss against El Salvador in 1982, when he scored after 70, 74 and 77 minutes. He is also the only substitute to have scored a hat-trick.
