Lots were drawn when Turkey and Spain tied in their 1954 Qualifying group and he pulled Turkeys name out of the hat to qualify for the Finals



BACK OF THE NET!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's the chap - the 14 year-old son of a stadium employee in Rome where Spain and Turkey couldn't be separated after tying their two-team WC qualification group, Spain winning 4-1 in Madrid and Turkey winning the return 1-0 in Istanbul - no aggregate score applying in those days. So a play-off was held in Rome three days after the Istanbul match and it finished 2-2 after extra-time. The lad was blindfolded and drew Turkey's straw from the lot.
