  • Description

    EIRE CRASHED TO THEIR THIRD WORLD CUP DEFEAT IN DUBLIN LAST NIGHT (SUNDAY) WHEN THEY WERE BEATEN BY THE POWERFUL HUNGARIAN SOCCER SQUAD 2-1.

    HUNGARY, TOPPING THEIR SECTION WITH CZECHOSLOVAKIA IN THE QUALIFYING GAMES WITH FOUR POINTS, BY NO MEANS DOMINATED THIS MATCH. THE PLUCKY IRISH SIDE WORRIED THE HUNGARIANS FROM BEGINNING TO END AND WERE UNLUCKY NOT TO FORCE A DRAW.

    IN THE FIRST HALF THE 20,000 CROWD SLOW HANDCLAPPED FREQUENTLY ALTHOUGH DUNAI SCORED A GOOD GOAL FOR HUNGARY.

    IT WASN'T UNTIL THE BEGINNING OF THE SECOND HALF THAT THE MATCH REALLY LIVENED UP.

    DON GIVENS OF MANCHESTER UNITED, GRABBED THE ALL IMPORTANT GOAL AFTER EAMONN DUNPHY AND SUBSTITUTE O'NEILL HAD LAID IT ON. IT ALMOST WORKED THE MIRACLE WHICH THE CROWD THOUGHT WOULD HOLD THE HUNGARIANS.

    FITTINGLY, IT WAS WORLD CUP STAR BENE WHO VIRTUALLY BOOKED HUNGARY'S MEXICO PASSAGE WITH THE WINNING GOAL TEN MINUTES FROM TIME.

    EIRE HAVE SO FAR BEEN DEFEATED BY CZECHOSLOVAKIA AND DENMARK.
