- World Cup 1954 -

The 1954 FIFA Football World Championship was hosted by Switzerland. Olympic Champions Hungary, who had dominated the international scene in the  years running up to the tournament, were clear favourites to win the title, and seemed on their way to doing just that despite star-player Ferenc Puskas picking up an injury early on in the tournament. But in a final remembered by Germans as 'the Miracle of Bern', the Hungarians lost to a German team they had defeated 8-3 earlier in the tournament.
