Guam (population 165,124) Beat India (population 1.252 Billi

Postby afghankhan » Tue Jun 16, 2015 4:50 pm

Full-time: Guam 2-1 India.

How about this for an underdog story?

The U.S. island territory of Guam produced a result for the ages on Tuesday when they defeated India in a World Cup qualifier.

The populations of the two places tell you all you need to know about how monumental a result it was.

Of course, India are no football powers and are ranked only 141 in the world.

However, according to FIFA, over 20 million people in the country play football compared to just 5,460 in the Micronesia island of Guam.

But, of course, in football you can only put 11 on the field at one time. Goals from Brandon McDonald (38') and Travis Nicklaw (62') ensured a famous win over India, who only got their goal in stoppage time.

How many of them are actually from Guam? It seems like Brandon McDonald and Travis Nicklaw were born in America (proper America with hamburgers and homicides.)

I don't hate India.

I just thought it was quite remarkable especially after the focus on Football with the football premier league recently started with a lot of retired famous players. A Lot of money was used on that, so I thought they at least got better then Guam.

The report is from Bleachersport. I just posted it here. Did not check the background of the players.

It's American territory it seems.

On the contrary it is. If a person spends most of his energy producing babies, he will have hardly any left for sports (ask SGGH. he knows it even if he does not produce babies but just plucks his willey off wanking).
