  • Description

    HUNGARY PLAYED WITH VERVE AND STYLE TO DEFEAT JAPAN 5-0 IN THEIR OLYMPIC SEMI-FINAL MATCH IN MEXICO CITY ON TUESDAY. HUNGARY WILL GO INTO THE FINAL ON SATURDAY AGAINST BULGARIA.

    HUNGARY, THE TOKYO GOLD MEDALLISTS, WERE 1-0 UP AT HALF TIME FROM A 22ND MINUTE GOAL BY LAJOS SZUCS. THE HUNGARIANS THEN PRODUCED A DISPLAY OF SPARKLING SOCCER IN THE SECOND HALF, WITH TWO PENALTY GOALS FROM CAPTAIN DEZSO NOVAK AND TWO MORE FROM SZUCS IN THE 58TH AND 75TH MINUTES.

    JAPAN PRODUCED ONE OF THE BEST MOVES OF THE MATCH AFTER SIX MINUTES WHEN SUGIYAMA WAS PUT AWAY WITH A BRILLIANT PASS DOWN THE LEFT WING. HIS CROSS WAS NODDED DOWN TO THE FEET OF MIYAMOTO, BUT HIS SHOT WAS BLOCKED BY THE HUNGARIAN GOALKEEPER FATER.

    JAPAN'S DEFENCE BEGAN TO CRUMBLE AS THE HUNGARIANS TURNED ON THE PRESSURE, PACING THE GAME SUPERBLY. FROM THEN ON THE HUNGARIANS DOMINATED, AND RARELY LOST THE CHANCE TO EXPLOIT JAPANESE MISTIMING OR HESITANCY.
