First of all, they beat England in the 50s, to be precise, in November 13, 1953, by 6-3 in Wembley Stadium.
The second part of this was in March 1954, just before the 54 World Cup, when they beat England back home in Budapest
by 7-1.

That 6-3 is now considered as one of the greatest matches in football history, it was the very first time that England lost a match at home against a non-british team and the first time to lose at Wembley.

So far to history, I will try to send you a link soon.

Regards
