The great Ferenc Puskas falls at the final hurdle.
Winning the World Cup almost seemed like a foregone conclusion for Ferenc Puskas and his Hungary team of 1954.
Leading the line, Puskas, who appeared 85
times and scored an incredible 84 goals for the Mighty Magyars, had been in scintillating form until picking up an injury after the group games.
He missed the quarters and semis, making his return for the Final against Germany, a team Hungary had already beaten 8-3 at the group stage.
But if the Hungarians were expecting a walkover they were very much mistaken, and despite Puskas scoring in the sixth minute, Hungary ended up going down 3-2.
In 1962 Puskas took Spanish nationality and went on to represent his adopted country four times, three of which came at the '62 World Cup.
