  • Description

    For the first time since its formation in 1954, the Young England football team lost a match against a foreign team, at Goodison park Football Ground, Liverpool, UK, Sept.23. The Hungarian Under-23 team scored a one-goal-to-nil victory.

    The red-shirted visitors showed none of the brilliance and artistry for which Hungary has been renowned. Shirt-tugging, tripping and body-checking were rife throughout the game.

    Young England lacked cohesion for most of the match, although repeated attacks were made on the Hungarian goal. Tony Macedo, the Gibraltar-born English goalkeeper, played a brilliant game. Only Rakoski's lightning breakaway down the right wing, and the subsequent left-footed kick beat him. Recently a Spanish club offered Macedo's team, Fulham, GBP70,000 for the young goalkeeper.

    During the game Hungary made use of one of soccer's controversial laws and brought on a substitute outside left.
