So many legendary matchups between Vanuatu and Micronesia to reflect on but this was definitely my favorite. PACIFIC GAMES GOIN’ HARD IN THE MFing PAINT YO! Granted Micronesia only learned about this sport 18 months ago but there is NO mercy in Olympic Qualifiers. Sometimes there aren’t even goals.
Like literally…. Micronesia didn’t score during the entire tournament. How many suicides does a team run after giving up 114 goals in 3 days? Also what happens when your scorekeeper says NAHHHHHHHH and peaces out in the middle of a game? Micronesia, The Most Fascinating Futbol Team In The World..
There’s outright laughter from the Vanuatu bench about some of Micronesia’s play. FSM coach Stan Foster shouts “Oh no” as 8th goal flies in. — Kevin Darling (@darlingkevin) July 7, 2015
HT: Vanuatu 24-0 Micronesia. Fiji were 21-0 up at HT in Sunday’s 38-0. Coach Foster giving the team talk of his life. pic.twitter.com/JTXchWXagE— Kevin Darling (@darlingkevin) July 7, 2015
There’s an empty desk where the official scorer was sitting. Nervous breakdown? THINK it’s Vanuatu 32-0 Micronesia. pic.twitter.com/VHTEXtqAAZ — Kevin Darling (@darlingkevin) July 7, 2015
It’s mayhem here. Scorerkeeper left his desk and now no one knows exact score. Vanuatu have at least 42. One guy scored 14 of them.— Kevin Darling (@darlingkevin) July 7, 2015
By the way, the scorekeeper came back and took care of business. He knew the score. — Kevin Darling (@darlingkevin) July 7, 2015
Tahiti draw with Fiji, meaning Vanuatu are out of the Pacific Games despite beating Micronesia 46-0. After all that.— Kevin Darling (@darlingkevin) July 7, 2015
Just remember Micronesia, when you come at the 200th ranked FIFA Team in the world…. YOU BEST NOT MISS. Also try to put the round ball through the square net, that’s the point of the entire game.
