October 24, 2015

A plaque commemorating the 1960 Champions Cup final between Real Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt and the top scorer of the match, Hungary's Ferenc Puskás, was unveiled at the Scottish National Football Museum at Hampden in Glasgow, Scotland.

The plaque was revealed in the 55th anniversary year of the final of the 1960 European Champions Cup final in which Ferenc Puskás scored four goals to help Spanish giants Real Madrid beat Germany's Eintracht Frankfurt 7-3 in front of a crowd of 127,000 people at Hampden Park.

On the plaque itself, Puskás is referred to as “the greatest goalscorer of the 20th century”. The Scottish daily 'The Scotsman' notes that he scored 84 goals in 85 international appearances, 514 goals in 529 matches in the Hungarian and Spanish leagues.

As the newspaper put it, it is appropriate that someone who made such a lasting impression at Hampden should now have permanent recognition at the national stadium.
