San Marino

Perennial whipping boys San Marino scored their first away goal in fourteen years against ten-man Lithuania, sparking wild celebrations on the pitch:

As well as off it, from the team’s official Twitter account:

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL.

So carried away did San Marino’s Twitter get that it even had a dig at Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo:

Goles de San Marino en septiembre: 1 Goles de Cristiano Ronaldo en septiembre: 0 San Marino >>>>> Cristiano Ronaldo.

Cristiano Ronaldo llamó al hotel donde se encuentra nuestra selección. Quería que le enseñemos a hacer goles.

“Cristiano Ronaldo phoned the hotel where we’re staying. He wanted us to teach him how to score goals.”

Neither did Arsenal escape unmocked on the official San Marino Twitter’s rampage…

Y al final llego nuestro gol, en la vida todo llega, menos la Champions para el Arsenal.

— Selección San Marino (@sanmarinopasion) September 8, 2015

“And in the end we get our goal, in life everything comes around, apart from a Champions League for Arsenal.”

San Marino lost the game 2-1 to a last-gasp Lithuania winner.
