On the 12th September 1990 they defeated Austria in a soccer match 1:0.
That's very surprising since it was the FÃÂ¸royar islands first non-friendly soccer match ever. It inaugurated them on the map of European soccer and even led to the building of the Toftir stadium for home-games.
In Austria it's called the defeat of a century and it is still rumored that every member of the National tem get a apckage of smoked salmon for new-years each year by the FÃÂ¸royarian tourist office. And the team chief each month.
Sometimes it seems our soocer team hasn't fully recovered from that yet
Don't remember it, it was in some highly esteemed football book that the radio guys talked about... I think it was in the early 50es... HAve a feelin America was somehow involved but I really don't remember
This is what I found out on Wikipedia, it could be it:
"In the 1950 World Cup, the U.S. team pulled off one of the greatest upsets in soccer history, handing England its first ever World Cup defeat 1-0, after England had recently beaten the rest of Europe 6-1 in an exhibition match"
