Hungary scored a total of 27 goals in five matches at the 1954 FIFA World Cup Switzerland™, an average of 5.4 per game.

This gave the Magyars not only the highest-ever goal average in the history of the competition, but also the highest number of goals ever scored in a single World Cup.

Sadly for this fantastic, free-scoring side, they famously lost out in the 1954 Final, going down 3-2 to a Germany side they had thrashed 8-3 during the group phase.
