Hungarian football blues

 Holland is in black uniform, Hungary is red, white and green.

I had the opportunity to watch the Holland vs. Hungary match the other day and walked away a little disappointed. Holland beat Hungary 4-1 in the match for the qualification for the World Cup 2014 competition. Hungary has a difficult qualifying group as Holland, Turkey and Romania are present in the group. Holland is in 8th place in the FIFA world rankings list while Hungary has dropped down to 37th place. There is still hope as the qualifications are still in the early stages. It has been over two decades since Hungary has qualified for a World Cup competition. Hungary used to be a dominant force in football for decades.
