This tiny alpine country is preferred mostly because there almost no signs of terrible Second World War. The choice is successful – beautiful cities and stadiums expect comfortable stay. In the qualifications expected results are obtained with only one big surprise. After an exchange of domestic victories – Spain 4:1 to 1:0 in Madrid and Istanbul in Turkey to be played and the third match between these 2 teams in Rome (until 1966. Incl.

The match is not decided in overtime – and 2:2 for the first and last time in the history of the championships, one team sends lots of World Cup finals. Fortuna, transformed small guy to an infant, smiling Turkey. Bulgaria, after a series of “wise” administrative decisions (such as the inclusion of the national championship team in the country in 1953 again failed .?!?), – 2 losses in Romania, with 1:3 and 1:2, and one from Czechoslovakia with 1 : 2, and equality in Bratislava (0:0) is a weak consolation.
