In 1966 World cup (In Britain) Portugal was against North Korea. It seemed like North Korea was in a rush beacuse in the first half they scored 3-0 but in the second half Eusebio jumped to the rescue and scored 4 Glorious goals and Portuguese people remember that game as the turn around because Eusebio (the champion) scored 4 goals when the other team were in the lead with 3-0. Luckily the game ended as 5-3.
