England – 3: Hungary – 6

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Nineteen fifty-three: at Wembley
a devastation of those slow heavy dancers
shown-up by poetry and ballet heralding a dawn of glory
remember their names:
Ference Puskas: Zoltan Czibor: Hidegkuti:
poets of Hungarian Soccer Genius.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I never forgot one goal –
as the ball swings over from the wing
Puskas takes it on his insteap
swivels round, the ball still on his toe
flicks it onto his other foot shoots!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A goal…

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 a unique goal in the entire history
of this universal teamgame: Football!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 A Puskas goal at Wembley in nineteen fifty-three.
