A plaque has been unveiled at the Scottish National Football Museum commemorating one of the greatest European Cup finals of all time.

Over 100,000 people watched Real Madrid beat Eintracht Frankfurt 7-2 in the 1960 European Cup final at Hampden Park. Madrid striker Ferenc Puskas became the only player to score four times in a European final that day – a record which still stands.

It is a match regarded by some as the greatest football match of the 20th century.

The occasion was also marked by the launch of an authorised biography of Puskas, written by founder of the FIFA Puskas award for goal of the year, Gyorgy Szollosi.

Szollosi took part in a discussion on the Hungarian legend with Scottish commentator Archie MacPherson and journalist Hugh MacDonald at the Scottish Football Museum.

The author said: “It’s a great honour to visit Hampden, where Puskas enjoyed one of his greatest ever games.”

Sir Alex Ferguson, who wrote the book’s foreward said: “I was a player at Queen’s Park and was able to get a ticket to witness the greatest final of all time. I was fortunate to have seen (Puskas) play. He was without question one of the greatest players of all time.”
