Notes:

-Match number 551 for Hungary and number 556 for England.

-This was the 12th meeting between the nations.

-The previous match between the nations, as well as the previous match on English soil and previous English win, was in a friendly at Wembley on May 24, 1978 that England won (4-1).

Ron Greenwood was still at his post at England Manager.
Phil Neal scored on a penalty kick for England on that day.
Note: For England, Trevor Francis and Peter Barnes played in that match as well. The pair were most likely part of the England squad for this June 1981 match (even though they didn’t play, they could have been on the bench for this 1981 match)

-The previous match between the nations on Hungarian soil and in fact at the same venue was a friendly on May 22, 1960 that Hungary won (2-0).

-The previous match between the nations on neutral soil and the previous Hungary victory and in fact their last win over England to date, was a World Cup Finals match in Rancagua, Chile on May 31, 1962 during the Chile World Cup that Hungary won (2-1).

Note:
1-For England, Alvin Martin, Kenny Sansom, Peter White and Glenn Hoddle played in that match. They were all most likely part of the England squad for this June 1981 match (even though they didn’t play, they could have been on the bench for this June 1981 match)

-Bryan Robson also captained England in a scoreless friendly at the same venue on April 27, 1988.
Glenn Hoddle also played in that match, and he was most likely part of the England squad for this June 1981 match (even though he didn’t play, he could have been on the bench for this June 1981 match)
Imre Garaba captained Hungary in that match. Hungary were managed by Laszlo Balint who played in the June 1981 match.

-Imre Garaba would captain Hungary in a friendly at Wembley on September 12, 1990 that England won (1-0).
Kalman Meszoly was once again Hungary’s Manager in his second spell in charge.

-Kevin Keegan in his second match as England Manager, faced Hungary at the same venue on April 28, 1999 (1-1 tie).

-The previous match between the nations that Hungary won on away soil was the historic November 25, 1953 match that Hungary won (6-3).

-The First match between the nations at the same venue was on May 23, 1954 that Hungary won (7-1).

-The previous match between the nations that England had won on away soil was on May 31, 1909 (72 years prior), when England defeated Hungary at Budapest’s Millenaris sporttelep (8-2). Just two days prior they had also defeated the Hungarians at the same venue (4-2).         

-The first ever match between the nations at the same city was the very first match between the nations on June 10, 1908 when England defeated Hungary (7-0) at Budapest’s Millenaris sporttelep.     

-Along with England and Hungary, the other teams in this 1982 World Cup qualifying Group were Romania, Switzerland and Norway.

-Going into this World Cup qualifier, Romania were leading the Group with 6 points, just one ahead of England and Hungary.
Hungary still had five matches to play and seemed odds on favorites to advance from the Group and given England’s poor form, Romania appeared to be the second candidate to qualify from the Group.

-In the weeks leading to this match, Hungary played in two qualifiers. They defeated Romania (1-0, Laszlo Fazekas goal) in Budapest on May 13th and a week later on May 20th, defeated Norway 2-1 at Oslo with two late goals from Laszlo Kiss.

-Hungary made two changes from the Norway match for this match vs. England. Attila Kerekes and Jozsef Toth were replaced with Laszlo Balint and Jozsef Mucha. Toth had been booked vs. Norway and due to accumulation of yellow cards was suspended for the England match.
Balint had been injured for the match vs. Norway but was now fit.
To replace Toth, Kalman Meszoly had thought of using Ferencvaros’ Laszlo Takacs but instead decided to move Varga back in defense and insert Mucha.

-England had started the year badly and in fact had not yet won in the calendar year. Prior to facing Hungary, they had been in the midst of a winless streak of six matches. They had lost to Spain (1-2) in a friendly on Match 25th, followed by a goalless draw at Wembley in a qualifier vs. Romania on April 29th.
The summer schedule comprised of five matches in less than a month: Brazil (May 12th), Wales (May 20th, Home Championship), Scotland (May 23rd, Home Championship), Switzerland (May 30th, World Cup qualifier) and finally Hungary (June 6th, World Cup qualifier) .
The prestige friendly vs. Brazil at Wembley yielded a (0-1) loss. The match vs. Wales at Wembley ended scoreless and the English lost to Scotland (0-1) at Wembley. The English lost (1-2) at Basel in a World Cup qualifier to further complicate their qualification prospects.
Peter Shilton had dropped out of the summer tour, therefore Ron Greenwood did not have to alternate the goalkeepers and Ray Clemence was to start vs. Hungary. Joe Corrigan was the back-up goalkeeper on these summer matches.

-After the loss vs. Switzerland, there was growing pressure on Greenwood. The Sun headlined  ‘For God’s Sake go’. (In another source, The Sun headline was stated as “For God’s Sake, Ron, Pack up”)
The Times’ Norman Fox also accused Greenwood of loyalty that had extended the international careers of players such as Keegan and Watson.
Keegan blamed the Press for destroying Team Morale.

-England stayed at the Inter Continental Hotel at Budapest near Danube River.

-The day before on June 5th, the England U-21 squad won (2-1) over Hungary.

-The English squad trained the day before match,  at 8 PM, as it was too hot during the day.

-The poor display vs. Switzerland forced Greenwood to make changes. In defense, Kenny Sansom and Russel Osman were dropped in favor of Phil Thompson and Phil Neal.
Sansom was seen as a scapegoat for the loss.
In midfield, Ray Wilkins was dropped in favor of Trevor Brooking, while Trevor Francis was also dropped and Terry McDermott started.
Brooking was back in the squad after a long spell out. This was the first instance of the Brooking-Keegan partnership in these qualifiers.
In one source, Sansom and Hoddle were said to have not even made the bench.

-Greenwood tasked Bryan Robson to mark Tibor Nylasi.

-Before the match, as Veterans’ match was played that included the likes of Ferenc Puskas, Gyula Grosics and Nandor Hidegkuti. Puskas scored a hat trick in the match.

-Former ‘Mighty Magyar’ Gyula Lorant had passed away (aged 58) days before on May 31st. At the time he was the Manager of Greek club PAOK and in fact had a heart attack while managing his side in a match vs. Olympiakos.

-Before game, Greenwood told his players: “This is a game of character, attitude and experience and we’re going to need a lot of it’.

-In a rare instance for the times, Hungary players had their names on the back of their jerseys.

-England opened the scoring in the 18th minute. On the right side, Coppell gave the ball to McDermott.
McDermott’s cross was volleyed in by Brooking.

-Nylasi had a chance to tie the match, but his header off of a corner struck the bar.

-Hungary tied the match in the 44th minute. Torocsik lofted a ball in the box, Clemence came out to collect, but could not hold the ball slipped out of his hands. The loose ball fell for Garaba who scored in empty net.

-At halftime there were injury concerns for England’s Brooking (groin strain) and Mick Mills (leg injury) but both ensured Greenwood that that they would continue to play.

-Hungary’s Andras Komjati made his International debut after coming on for Sándor Müller in the 55th minute. This would be his solitary international appearance.

-England retook the lead in the 59th minute. On the right side, Neal sent a pass in the box for Keegan, on the right side, who immediately passed to Brooking who struck a hard shot into the top right hand side of Katzirz. The ball was stuck in the corner of the net and didn’t bounce down.
Brooking later said, “It was the finest shot I have ever struck.”

-Paul Mariner had a chance to score England’s third, after he was put through and was one on one with Katzirz but he failed to capitalize.

-In the 72nd minute, England were awarded a penalty kick after Kevin Keegan was fouled by Imre Garaba in the box. Kevin Keegan scored from the penalty kick. Some claimed Keegan had dived, as Garaba appeared to have played the ball.

-At the end of the match, Greenwood was angered when Keegan and Brooking were giving interviews to live television without consulting with him first.
He had wanted all his players together to celebrate the win.

-Greenwood’s press briefing was short, he said, “I’d like to thank you for your support over the years. Our win was a good one, well deserved and it’s given me great pleasure to beat the Hungarians. I don’t want to answer any questions. Thank you.”

-More drama was to follow on the English flight home. On the plane, Greenwood took Keegan to one side and told him he would announce his resignation at Luton airport on their way back.
It turned out that after the loss vs. Switzerland (on May 30th), Greenwood had informed of his decision to resign and retire to Dick Wragg, Chairman of FA’s International committee, and Ted Croker, the FA Secretary.
The flight was divided with the Press sitting at the back and the players at the front, he ordered the curtain to be raised and told his squad of his decision.
Keegan gathered Brooking, Mills and Clemence and they went to Greenwood’s seat and insisted that the squad were backing him and wanted him to stay.
Mick Mills reportedly told him, “If you retire, I will never speak to you again.”
At the Luton Airport, Dick Wragg was to announce the news.
The players decided that at the airport they would forget their baggage and directly go to Mr. Wragg and declare their full support of Greenwood to stay on.
In the end, perhaps moved by all the players support, Greenwood changed his mind at the Luton Airport and informed Dick Wragg.
Wragg said he was going to attempt to change his mind one last time before the announcement, but “you’ve saved me the trouble”.

-Greenwood told the gathered reporters, “I have to admit that I am feeling good right now…the thought of resignation never came into my head. It has been a difficult week, a traumatic week, but I said some time ago that England would qualify for Spain and that’s where we’re going.”

-The win gave a lifeline to England’s then bleak World Cup qualifying chances.  Although they would lose their next qualifier on September 9th, 1981 vs. Norway (1-2) at Oslo, they managed to defeat Hungary (1-0) on November 18th to qualify for the World Cup.
England qualified with the worst record of any of the qualifiers, 4 wins, 1 tie and 3 losses, total of 9 points.
By then Hungary had already qualified to the World Cup. Following the June 6th loss to England, Hungary’s World Cup qualifiers were: vs. Romania on September 23rd at Bucharest (scoreless tie), vs. Switzerland on October 14th at Budapest (3-0 win) and vs. Norway on October 31st at Budapest (4-1) win.

-Interestingly, England’s starting lineup did not contain a single player from that season’s League Champions Aston Villa. Peter White, who was most likely on the squad, was the only Aston Villa player.
In addition, Trevor Brooking was a Second Division player that season. Brooking and West Ham United won the Second Division title to get promoted to the First Division. (West Ham United Teammate Alvin Martin may have also been possibly part of the squad)

-The Ferencvaros contingent: Tibor Nyilasi and Jozsef Mucha won the Hungarian League title that season (that might also include Laszlo Takacs as he was possibly part of the squad).
Vasas players: Andras Komjati and Laszlo Kiss won the Hungarian Cup that season (that might also include goalkeeper Ferenc Meszaros as he was possibly part of the squad).

-Tottenham’s Glenn Hoddle (who was possibly part of the England squad) won the FA Cup that season.

-The Ipswich Town contingent: Mick Mills and Paul Mariner won the UEFA Cup that season. (That might also include goalkeeper Russel Osman as he was possibly part of the squad).

-The Liverpool contingent: Ray Clemence, Phil Neal, Phil Thompson and Terry McDermott won the Champions Cup that season by defeating Real Madrid (1-0) on May 27th. They also won the English League Cup that season.

-England’s squad was made up English-based players. Koln-based Tony Woodcock (in all likelihood part of the squad) would have been the only foreign-based English player.

-Hungary’s foreign-based players were all Belgian based: Laszlo Balint (Club Brugge), Sándor Müller (Antwerp) and Laszlo Fazekas (Antwerp).

-Both Managers: Ron Greenwood and Kalman Meszoly managed their sides at the 1982 World Cup.

-For the Hungarians: Laszlo Fazekas, Tibor Nylasi, András Töröcsik, Gyözö  Martos and László Bálint were members of the Hungary’s 1978 World Cup squad.

-All of the Hungarians players who took part in this June 1981 match (with the exception of Andras Komjati and Jozsef Mucha) made Hungary’s 1982 World Cup squad. This list could also include: Ferenc Mészáros, József Tóth and Attila Kerekes (even though they didn’t play, they could have been on the bench for this June 1981 match).

-Hungary players: József Varga and Imre Garaba were part of the Hungary’s 1986 squad.

-All of the English players who took part in this June 1981 match (with the exception of Dave Watson) made England’s 1982 World Cup squad. This list could also include: Viv Anderson, Trevor Francis, Glenn Hoddle, Joe Corrigan, Graeme Rix, Kenny Sansom, Peter White and Tony Woodcock (even though they didn’t play, they could have been on the bench for this June 1981 match).

-England players: Bryan Robson and Ray Wilkins were part of the England’s 1986 squad. This list could also include: Viv Anderson, Alvin Martin, Glenn Hoddle and Kenny Sansom (even though they didn’t play, they could have been on the bench for this June 1981 match).

-Bryan Robson was the only English player, who was part of the 1990 World Cup squad.

-From the following season, Ferenc Meszaros would replace Katzirz as Hungary’s starting goalkeeper.

-Hungary’s Gyozo Martos would also join the Belgian League by signing for Waterschei. Laszlo Balint would leave the Belgian League by joining France’s Toulouse.

-Bryan Robson would join Manchester United, early next season in a big money move. Ray Clemence would join Tottenham next season.

-Kalman Meszoly managed Hungary in three different spells (1980/83), (1990/91) and (1994/95). He also managed the Turkish National Team in 1985.

-England Manager Ron Greenwood retired following the end of the 1982 World Cup.

-Andras Torocsik’s girlfriend had been caught shoplifting in London, when Hungary last faced England at Wembley (May 24, 1978, England 4-Hungary 1).

-England Manager Ron Greenwood (November 11, 1921-February 9, 2006) and Ray Wilkins (September 14, 1956-April 4, 2018) are the only protagonists from this match who have since passed on.
