Budapest

Across a vast wall on Rumbach Sebestyén utca, an important national icon can be admired, celebrating the Match of the Century. In 1953, the Aranycsapat (Hungary's so-called Golden Team) famously defeated England 6-3 at Wembley Stadium in London. For the 60th anniversary of this groundbreaking victory, the team at Neopaint paid homage by creating Hungary’s largest mural with 400 litres of paint. The giant surface shows a goal being scored, a match ticket and the front page of the following day’s Népsport newspaper. Goalkeeper Gyula Grosics and defender Jenő Buzánszky are also depicted – they were still alive when the painting was unveiled. Murals are common in this street: Empress Sissy and Rubik's Cube also have their own portrayals nearby.
