SIR - For the Who's Counting' lads 1953 was an important year, not so much for the Coronation but in the realisation that far-off countries of which we knew little could, as far as football was concerned, play a bit'.

Under the inspiring Puskas, who has just died, the likes of Billy Wright, Alf Ramsey and even Stan Matthews were seen off at Wembley conceding six goals.

Of course we all knew that this number wouldn't be conceded again in the return in Budapest.

We were right. The Magic Magyars' got seven!

Happy days when England got beaten by only good sides!
