Monday Mural - Match of the Century

I came across this huge mural while on our way to dinner at a restaurant in the Jewish district (7th district) of Budapest, and returned the next day to take photos.
It depicts the football match between Hungary and England in 1953, when Hungary beat England by 6-3 causing the English team to review their training and tactics.
It's located at Rumbach Sebestyen Utca 6-10 (Sebestyan Rumbach str) and is part of a wall rehabilitation program which started in 2013 to bring life into the old and dark walls of the district.

And from the size of the mural on the 1000 sq metre surface, you can imagine how proud the Hungarians must be of that win!

  2. Rather unusual to depict something like that in a mural. It would have been a very good propaganda coup at the time.

  3. I promise to love this mural and NOT say anything about the fact that it is NOT football, but soccer (in MY world). Huge mural for a huge win.

    1. Lol, yes Elizabeth we have to agree to disagree - unfortunately the world can't make up it's mind, as some countries call it soccer and others call it football. :)

    1. I think the mural is from 2013, but I think someone must love football and decided to remind everyone of that win.
      Thanks Marianne.
