San Marino slogged their way to a glorious goalless draw against Estonia on Saturday night – a result which saw the minnows, currently joint-rock bottom of the FIFA rankings alongside Bhutan, pick up their first ever point in European Championship qualifying.

As well as being only their fourth ever clean sheet, the 0-0 against Estonia also marked the first time San Marino had managed anything other than defeat in the space of the 62 international fixtures they’ve played since the nation’s first ever competitive game in 1990.

With their 61-game losing streak well and truly vanquished, it’s perhaps little wonder that the San Marino players and staff celebrated like they’d won the World Cup when the final whistle sounded around the Stadio Olimpico di Serravalle…

Heroes, to a man.

    “…the first time San Marino had managed anything other than defeat in the space of the 62 international fixtures they’ve played since the nation’s first ever competitive game in 1990.”

    This implies they’ve only played 62 games since 1990 and lost all of them!

    They’ve played 127 games of which 9 were friendlies. They’ve lost the last 62 (inc. 6 friendlies) games since they beat Lichtenstein in a friendly.
