Tot Yugoslavia 8-2 8½-1½ Belgium

A rematch after the 1951 match in Brussels. This time, the Yugoslavian team was much weaker and Belgium might have had a (small) chance had they not played with something of a B-team: Dunkelblum, Van Seters, Soultanbeieff, Devos, Thibaut, Lemaire were all missing. I found the results and one game in [2]. [1] claims that Fuderer and Van Hoorde as well as Germek and Coosemans drew their respective two games. Two surprising draws seems less likely than one surprising win to me, and the game given in [1] is definitely a win for Coosemans, so I think I can safely assume that the results from [2] are the correct ones.
