World's worst football team, American Samoa, wins at last after 17 years!!!

THE WORST team in international football, American Samoa, has finally won a game at the 31st attempt and after 17 years of trying.

The team, joint bottom of the Fifa rankings in 204th place, overcame Pacific neighbours Tonga in a qualifier for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. And although the US island territory is unlikely to progress much further down the road to Rio, the win was heralded as a huge breakthrough.

American Samoa's footballers achieved notoriety in 2001 when they lost 31-0 to Australia, the heaviest defeat in international football history.

That was just one of the 30 matches they have lost since making their debut on the international scene in 1994. Their overall goal record read 12 for and 229 against before they went into this week’s match. Full story...
