In the latest issue of the FIFA rankings, the UEFA team San Marino has just slipped one place, ranking 210th, which is the last lowest in the world. Compared to the Chinese Men's Football FIFA ranking of 76th, San Marino can be said to be a third-tier weaker team than the national football team. Since 2014, San Marino has suffered 40 consecutive losses in various international competitions, and has only 4 goals and conceded 165 goals. It is the weakest team in European football.
However, in a UEFA D-level game this morning, they successfully drew the Liechtenstein team 0-0 in the away game and scored the first points in team history in the European League. In the past two games, their opponents were Liechtenstein. They lost 0-2 at home in the UEFA Europa League, and then defeated their opponents 0-4 in the warm-up match a few days ago. It can be said that all signs indicate that San Marino will definitely lose in this morning's game, but today's game is uncharacteristic!
Liechtenstein almost capsized at home, because San Marino's accumulated strength was released in this game. San Marino, which is dominated by amateur players, played a beautiful counterattack. The counterattack was extremely efficient in the whole game, and it obtained more shots than Liechtenstein. They even have an excellent opportunity to break the Liechtenstein team. If it were not for the brave goalkeeper of the home team, San Marino would have won the game.
Even if the final score is 0-0, San Marino still managed to score their first points in the history of the European League. This small national team with only 34 years of history has only achieved a record of 1 win and 4 draws in history, and all other games have lost. The only victory in history was the defeat of Liechtenstein in 2004, but today this draw was achieved on the away game, and it is no less important than the only victory in team history. It is believed that this draw will allow San Marino to get rid of the bottom-most position in world football.
Pork belly, ranked 134 lower than the national football team, scored the first point in history in the European League. The last time San Marino did not lose was a European Cup qualifier in 2014. They tied Estonia 0-0 at home. That game was also San Marino's only draw in the European Cup qualifiers. After more than 6 years, San Marino scored their first points in the European League, which is gratifying. If FIFA is a big class, then today's worst student scored 60 points!
