    "SV victorious Hungarian eleven" - that's footage of Hungary's previous victory over England, winning by 6-3 at Wembley in 1953.

    "Stanley Rouse" in text and tags should read Stanley Rous.

    "Puskas" is Ferenc Puskas.

    "Czibor" is Zoltan Czibor.

    "Merrick" is Gil Merrick.

    "Koscis" should read Sandor Kocsis.

    "Dickinson" is Jimmy Dickinson.

    "Hidekuti" should read Nandor Hidegkuti.

    Hungary won the match 7-1.
