Ferenc Puskas : Captain of Hungary, Paperback


In the years before the Hungarian uprising, Ferenc Puskas scored an unbelievable 83 goals in 84 appearances for his country - but then again, the Hungarian team of the 1950s was pretty unbelievable in itself, revolutionising the game of football on their way to the Olympic final of 1952 and the World Cup final of 1954.

This book, Puskas' autobiography, smuggled out of Hungary in the mid-1950s, gives his account of growing up in Soviet-occupied Hungary, travelling the world with the national side and army team Honved, and of the never-to-be-forgotten achievements of a true legend of the international game.
