Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

In the first official UEFA national team game ever in the history of the Faeroe Islands (or however you spell their name), they famously beat Austria 1:0 in september 1990 in Landskrona, Sweden (because at that time there was not a single usable grass football pitch on their islands), and apparently that event was more or less part of the founding myth of the nation of the Faroe Islands.
From what I understand I'm quite certain that every single citizen of the Faroe Islands knows Austria and Landskrona, and Torkil Nielsen and Jens Knudsen - as does every Austrian who followed football at that time.
This is what I call "losing with elegance"
They should make an habit of it, specially next month
