Actually I enjoyed the last 2 matches.
Yesterday was a day of bad luck, it could have been worse with the GK expulsed after 9 minutes...
I watched a little bit of the game against Serbia and wasn't impressed.

It would be too hilarious if the Faeroes get a point against France and Austria possibly still has a chance to overtake France in the last game.

Anyway, France is the second best team in that group, whatever that's worth, despite their problems.

I wasn't impressed too but that's still better than what I saw against Faeroes.

Yeah, hilarious...Bruno N'Gotty says hello BTW (sweet vengeance )

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Watching England vs Germany women's EC finale right now.

It's a good game actually, once you get past comparing the level of play with men's football.

1:2 England - Germany after 30 minutes

Honestly, who didn't see this coming for Maradonna? When they named him manager I laughed for days.

Hey, how many countries can say that their national football team losing a certain match had a significant impact on another country's history?

And Germany wins 2:6! Pretty good game, I think. Fifth EC in a row.

Ask any Faringian (or whatever they are called in English) about Landskrona and I promise you, they'll know what you're talking about - can the French claim anything similar?

I'm lost. Specially since I've googled "farigian" I have surrealists ideas in my mind now.

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

I've read that the Austrian national coach at that time still recieved a giant fish at every anniversary of that game as a present from the Faroe Islands.
