Antal Dunai, also known as Dunai II[1] (born as Dujmov Antal in Gara, 21 March 1943) is a former Hungarian footballer with Yugoslav origins. He became a first division player at Pécsi Dózsa, but he spent the majority of his career at Újpesti Dózsa from 1965 to 1977, when he moved to Debreceni VSC. He played 31 games and scored 9 goals for the Hungary national football team.[2] He is most famous for his participation in the gold medal winning Hungarian team on the 1968, and silver medal winning national team on the 1972 Olympics.[3][4] On both tournaments he finished second top scorer. He was also a member of the Hungarian UEFA Euro 1972 team.[5]

Dunai, being a powerful striker, won the Silver boot for being the second highest scoring player in Europe in 1968 (however in 1967, before the introduction of the award he was the unofficial top scorer of Europe). He also won the Bronze boot in 1969.[6]

At the end of his career he became a coach at Xerez CD, Real Betis, CD Castellón, Zalaegerszegi TE, Real Murcia, Levante UD,[7] Veszprémi LC, Debreceni VSC and the Hungarian Olympic National team.
