Hungary 1912

The luck of the draw...
Hungary were in a pretty good place before the commencement of the 1912 Olympic tournament at Stockholm.
15 games had passed since they had been beaten 8-2 by England in 1909. Of these only 3 had been lost. 8 had been won, and 45 goals had been scored. In November 1911 Imre Schlosser had scored 6 in a 9-0 win over Switzerland.
Their final warm up match had been a 6-0 win over Norway in Oslo.
Having been given a bye in the first round Hungary faced England Amateurs (Great Britain).
It was a scorching day, and an experienced Hungary XI were outgunned by the English.
Bradford City's Harold Walden got 6 goals and the legendary Vivian Woodward 1 as England ran out 7-0 winners.
Contemporary Hungarian reports state that the score did not reflect the balance of play- possession and territory were about equal but that whereas the English forwards played phenomenally Schlosser was unwell and off form.
