RE: Football Styles And What They Say About Your Country's History


You are viewing a single comment's thread:

Hungary was a great football nation in the fifties, there was a reason for that and that was the so called "Grund"
The "Grunds" where open spaces between houses due to the aftermath of WWII.
There was a lot of houses being torn down and these open spaces became a playground for all those kids playing football and getting really good at it.
There was a great generation of players emerging from these grunds in the 60s and 70s these open spaces gave grounds for new buildings and football could only be played on football fields. That was the death of the hungarian football and it has not recovered ever since..
