  • Description

    In a World Cup elimination soccer match at Rotterdam Stadium April 30, Hungary boat Holland by three goals to nil - all scored in the first half.

    Faster on the ball, and more accurate in their passing, the Hungarians deserved their win. Outside-right Sandor scored the first goal, and two minutes later, outside-left Fenyvesi put them further ahead with a second. Then came a spell of spirited attack from the Dutch as they tried in vain to beat the acrobatic hungarian goalkeeper Grosics. Hungary's inside-left Tichy scored the third and last goal of the match a little before the half-time whistle went.

    The Dutch players showed occasional flashes of individual brilliance - right-half Muller was probably the best player on the field - but they did not combine well and their forwards frequently made the mistake of hanging on to the ball too long. Although they made many attacks, and play veered from end to end with unusual rapidity throughout much of the match, they never looked like winning.
