Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Fritz WalterComes the turn of the quarter. Uruguay-England – 4:2. Characters from past World Cup Schiaffino, Andrade, Varela … again among the best. Strongly impressed by young defender SantamarĂ­a. They inflicted a new blow to the prestige of English football. Billy Wright, Lofthaus, Finney give everything, but it obviously is not something more serious. Hungary-Brazil – 4:2. The bulls have no leader and rifle that adds even more value for their victory.

Switzerland 1954 groups stageThe first group (France, Brazil, Yugoslavia, Mexico), one “leader”, France, drops! According to French specialists, the team is not bad for football, but is much stronger in the game … whiteness. The winners here are Brazil and Yugoslavia. After their victories in the first round against Mexico, respectively, with 5:0 and 1:0 in France, “Carioca” and “floating” your smarter a strategic draw – 1:1 and company (and even easy) jump over the barrier to the quarterfinals. “The cocks” fight hard “Sombrero” with 3:2 in their last match of this World, but what good … In the second group (Hungary, Germany, Turkey, Korea) were injected 41 goals in 5 matches! Average of 8.2 goals per game! Reasonably question arises: “But those I have played football?” Awesome record, which will never be repeated.

The world is frightening, touched, fascinated “by the unseen and particularly brilliant manner in which they play. Incredible double resonance has great impact, which affix to the homeland of Hungary England football, a year before the World Cup. The English are dispelled in 6:3 with “soft” th football – Wembley Stadium and 7:1 in Budapest! Phenomenal, right! And the Germans? Nobody, not even for a moment and not think that the “old fox” Herbeger September, coach, think terrible plans. Why is it preferred to become a pratfall, sending a “slaughter” their team with 8 players back on the field? A “driver” Turkey is crushed cockroach. Keto boot from Germany – 4:1 and 7:2. Let him pick those smart heads who have decided that not still killed hydra Germany is weaker team. (more…)

Switzerland 1954Switzerland’s decision to host a World Cup V, was taken at the congress of FIFA in 1946. in Luxembourg by consensus (in fact, in the same way otgava is selected and the previous host – Brazil). 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. Goal difference is no additional factor for FIFA. Nor are resolved and changes of players in official matches). 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. Apparently, our time has not yet come.
