The 1954 FIFA World Cup Final was the final match of the 1954 FIFA World Cup, the fifth World Cup in FIFA history. The game was played at the Wankdorf Stadium in Bern, Switzerland, on 4 July 1954, and saw West Germany beat the heavily favoured Golden Team of Hungary 3–2. The 1954 final is often listed as one of the greatest matches in World Cup history, and also one of its most unexpected upsets. Beyond football, some historians ascribe the match a lasting impact on both German and ...

The defending champions Uruguay were among the teams; their national side had so far won the tournament in every attempt. It was, however Hungary, the big dominant in European football at this time, that arrived in Switzerland as the biggest favorite. One of their players was the legendary Ferenc Puskás who was injured against West Germanyin the group phase, but would recover for the knockout stage. Notable was also that Scotland, South Korea and Turkey all had managed to qualify for the World Cup final for the first time (the former great power in football, Scotland, had only been a member of FIFA since 1949). Germany that had been forbidden to participate in the previous World Cup due to the actions in World War II was again welcome in the FIFA World Cup. The atmosphere in Switzerland was completely different from what it had been four years back in Brazil. It was a rather big contrast to the passionate audience that had filled the enormous Maracanã. It may seem strange that such...
The format was a first phase with four four-teams group from which two teams would advance to a final knockout stage. A curious thing with the set-up for this tournament was that every team only played two group matches, and would only meet two out of three teams. Ranking would decide which teams that would meet. Unsurprisingly, the design would be criticized. Criticized was also the idea that no concern would be taken if a team had come first or second in the group when the teams were assigned opponents in the Quarter-finals. This resulted in that a very plausible final would come off already in the Quarter-finals between Hungary and Brazil.
The matches would be played in six cities and at six stadiums (see “Cities and stadiums” box for overview). The Wankdorf Stadium in Bern had the biggest capacity with places for over 64,000 and the final would consequently be played here.
The tournament would achieve the highest goals average ever in a World Cup with an astonishing 5.38 goals per match. Most excessive production of goals at all would come about in the Quarter-final game between Austria and Switzerland: 7-5 after 90 minutes (12 goals in one match are still a record in the tournament). Another reason was the South Korean negative record with 16 goals forfeited. Over five goals per match had never happened before and it will certainly not happen again. In the Quarter-finals Hungary faced Brazil in a match that was mentioned as a moral final. But the major impression of the game was not the sporting, but violent encounters on the field. The game that would be called "Battle of Berne" included three red cards, fights on the sideline after the final whistle and continued further with Brazilians attacking the Hungarian players in their locking room. West Germany may be one of the biggest football nations, but the team in the 1954 World Cup lacked qualificat...
