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

Football_Pallo_valmiina-cropped

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.
