Celebrate for football's international minnows!
In what turned out to be a very crazy round of football (7/9/11), many of FIFA's minnows have recorded remarkable draws or even incredible wins against much more fancied opponents. Many people would have written these nations off, but they played their hearts out and triumphed (or almost triumphed) against all odds to salvage a point or to claim all three points.
Who would have known?
2014 FIFA World Cup Qualification (Asain Confederation):
Lebanon 3-1 United Arab Emirates
Jordan 2-1 China
Kuwait 1-1 South Korea
2012 UEFA European Championship Qualification:
Slovakia 0-4 Armenia
Moldova 0-2 Hungary
Azerbaijan 3-2 Kazakhstan
Luxembourg 2-1 Albania
Malta 1-1 Georgia
Iceland 1-0 Cyprus
So next time you see an underdog team and they get absolutely destroyed by the opposition, don't feel sorry for them: support them!
