Moment of Cool: Andorra Did Something For The First Time In A Long Time

And for this moment, we go to the World Cup Group action against Hungary…

Where they did this…

And with that goal, Andorra won for the first time in 66 matches- or 13 years… whichever you prefer. And the Marc Rebes goal, pretty much, ended any hopes of the Hungary side making it out of Group.

Andorra’s previous, and only other, win was a 1-0 victory over Macedonia in a World Cup qualifier in October 2004.

#MomentOfCool: What Pro/Rel Means In France…

Without Jarrett sounding the pro/rel gong behind the HQ as we file this story…

Some context…

Amiens SC had never been playing in Ligue 1- the top league of French football- in their entire history of ever… 116 years worth of not playing at the top…

That was until this happened on, literally, the last kick of their season…

And, yes, the play-by-play is in French, but you’ll get the idea…

Here’s the background…

Six teams had a shot at promotion on the last day out of Ligue 2. Strasbourg won, so they were in. That left five teams for one spot. With the 96th minute winner, Amiens goes forward automatically and avoids a play-in match for the third Ligue 1 spot.

First, Time, Ever…

That’s cool…
