Introduction

Hungary and the Netherlands have one particular trauma in common: losing a World Cup final to West Germany in spite of being almost universally considered to have been the best team of the relevant tournament. The Netherlands did not play Hungary very often during the heyday of Magyar football - no matches at all against the Aranycsapat of the fifties and only four competitive matches in the sixties, in which the Hungarians easily dominated the Dutch in 1962 World Cup and 1968 European Nations Cup qualifying, in groups also including East Germany.

Then there was a sudden flurry of matches in the mid-eighties, in qualifying campaigns for the 1986 World Cup and 1988 European Championship. Hungarian football had by then declined considerably but the national side still managed to secure a surprise 2-1 away win in Rotterdam which paved the way for Hungary's last ever qualification (to date) for an international tournament. Since that win, the two countries have met on nine occasions, with the Netherlands winning each and every encounter. Only against Cyprus and Luxembourg Oranje managed a similar series of successive wins (9 and 8 respectively, both series running). In the last six meetings alone, the Dutch ran up a 34-7 goal record against the not so mighty Magyars.
