The most terrifying ratio
Exactly 10 years ago, the record for a strong score in a World Cup match was set at Coffs Harbor, where the Australian team won the American Samoa squad by 31-0 in the 2002 World Cup qualifiers. The match that took place in April 2001 was also a match with a record score in international football history.
With 13 goals for the Australian team, player Archie Thompson hit the previous international match record (10 goals), as well as the scoring record in a match related to the World Cup (7 table).
How many goals are in 5 minutes?
If dividing the game into 18 sections, 5 minutes each, Thompson's record turned out to be nothing compared to the performance of W. G. Richardson. Exactly 70 years earlier, which means exactly 80 years ago (November 1931), Richardson scored a four-goal circuit in just 5 minutes (from 6 to 10) for West Brom against West Ham. That is the record for scoring 4 goals in the fastest time in the English league. West Brom won 5-1.
Scored 4 goals but drew only 2-2
Northern Ireland international Chris Nicholl also scored 4 goals in Leicester - Aston Villa 35 years ago (March 1976). Especially midfielder Nicholl twice burned his own net, "helped" Leicester to lead, and also scored twice to help Villa balance the score.
Nicholl's "self-imposed" goals were all headed with his head, and his equalizers were all scored with his feet. One wonders: how many real strikers have the ability to score as comprehensive as defender Nicholl?
The referee forgot the law!
