Australia achieved the largest victory ever in an international soccer match when they defeated American Samoa 32-0 in 2001.
This came just a day after the Australians had broken the previous record by dominating Tonga by a score of 22-0 in the opening round of the 2002 World Cup qualifier! The previous goals record had been achieved by Kuwait a year prior in a 20-0 massacre of Bhutan.
Part of the reason the second Australian victory was so dramatic was because the American Samoans had to call in their junior squad because the senior team had a passport mixup (the juniors' average age was 18!). Archie Thompson of Australia also scored a record 13 goals in the match, beating the former World Cup record of 7, held by Iran's Karim Bagheri. Thompson had only scored one goal in two other appearances for his country before that point!
Watch every one of these goals on Youtube! It's ridiculous!
