Background: World Cup soccer...and a crowd of more than 70,000 people watched Hungary play European group nine leaders, the Soviet Union, in their qualifying match in Budapest on Saturday evening ((30 April). Leadership of the group, and a possible place in the World Cup finals in Argentina were at stake in this game.
SYNOPSIS: Hungary, in the dark shirts, took the initiative almost from the start.
After a good build-up, Pinter centred the ball and Kovacs headed on to Varadi, who cut through the tight Soviet defence, but his snap shot was well saved by Soviet keeper Astapovsky.
A free kick by Buriak in the 16th minute found Blohin in front of goal, but the Soviet striker's hurried shot went wide. Hungary made a decisive breakthrough a minute before half time, when Zombori's cross was pushed over the line by Nyilasi.
Hungary led 1-0 at half time, but in the rugged second half four players, including Nyilasi, were booked as the Soviets fought for the equalising goal.
But it was Hungary, from a long throw-in by Pusztai, who scored again with this fine header from Kereki, which had Astapovsky well beaten.
With time running out, the Soviet Union made a last desperate attack. Hungary managed to clear, but the ball was centred again, for Kipiani to score. Kipiani also scored in the Soviet 2-0 victory over Greece the previous week in Moscow. With only a point separating Hungary and the Soviet Union in the placings, the deciding match could well be on May 18, when the two sides meet again, in Moscow.
