World Cup 1954 had the most surprising ending of all the Soccer World Cups in the history of this great tournament.

To everyone's surprise Germany advanced to the final and there took on Hungary , who was considered the best team of the tournament and a favorite to win the title of 1954 World Cup Champion.

During the final played on 4th of July in Berne, Wankdorf in front of 65,000 fans, Germany surprised everyone when they not only reached the finals but also beat this 1954 Soccer World Cup favorite nation Hungary. After being down 2-0, Germany made the greatest comeback in Soccer World Cup history to win the game 3-2.

Interesting thing to mention is the fact that Hungary destroyed Germans few nights before by winning 8-3 in the group stages.
