Dezsó Kovács missed the opening Hungarian game, the 8-8 draw against Germany at the 1936 Olympics but came in for [Kálmán Bartalis] in the replay and also played in the 3rd/4th place game. A Lieutenant in the Hungarian Army he served in the Budapest Artillery, like his team-mate [Imre Szentpály]. Kovács was a member of the Hungarian side who beat France to win the 1934 King’s Cup at Roma when two of his future 1936 Olympic team-mates, Szentpály and [Kálmán Bartalis] were on the same Cup-winning side. The same four that won the King’s Cup also reached the final of the 1934 Count Volpi di Misurata Cup, also in Roma, but lost to a French team.
