Former Real Madrid star Hungarian Ferenc Puskas has passed away at 79 after battling pnuemonia. Having seen tapes of Puskas this was an amazing player. Consider some of his accomplishments:
*9 years at Real Madrid
*3 European Cups (now Champions League)
*4 goals in the European Cup final in a 7-3 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in 1960
* 2 goals against England for Hungary in a 6-3 victory in 1953 at Wembley.
Hungary was the first team ever to defeat England at Wembley.
What was most amazing to me is that Puskas scored 83 GOALS IN 84 MATCHES FOR HUNGARY!
Puskas was considered at treasure at Real Madrid.
