Have Hungary won the World Cup?

Hungary have never won the FIFA World Cup in their entire history. Their best World Cup finish is 2nd place during the 1954 FIFA World Cup.

That time, they lost to West Germany in the final in what has become a controversial match in football history. Hungary’s team during that time was called the Magnificent Magyars, or the Golden Team, and had players like Sandor Kocsis and Zoltan Cziber.

They had rolled over teams during their march to the 1954 World Cup final against West Germany and were the overwhelming favourites to win the game. But Germany’s specialized adidas boots held up well during the rain and gave them a slight advantage.

So, while Hungary have 0 World Cup trophies to their name, it is very tough for them to replicate their 1950s success during this era. Their Golden team was a thing of beauty and was considered by many as the greatest international team to ever exist.

The current Hungary team has stars like Dominic Szoboszlai and Willy Orban but these are no way near the greats of yesteryear. Their most recent game has ended in a 4-0 loss to England in a FIFA World Cup qualifier game. They are in Group I and unlikely to make the cut for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
