As we QT’ed earlier, the Euro 2012 qualifiers began today with the Faroe Islands visiting Estonia. The two teams are ranked 118 and 94 respectively by FIFA. So a 2-1 win for Estonia mightn’t seem totally crushing to the visitors… until you see how it happened.
The Islanders were looking to make a 28th minute goal stand up. And they made it 90 minutes. But they couldn’t make it through stoppage time without giving up both the leveler and the loser. The latter was particularly painful as it looked like the Faroe Islands had cleared a set piece.
But the hosts played a long ball into the box and after a missed header there was a scrum near the six. Can’t even tell if the Estonian got a foot to it, but it ended up in the back of the net nonetheless.
