Record Breaking Fotball Result (149-0)

Postby The GFP » July 16th, 2012, 3:25 am

The previous was Arbroath 36-0 Bon Accord in 1885 (Scotland).

But ive just found this little beauty :

Adema 149-0 Stade Olymique L'Emyrne (Madagascar).

I know this was not exactly recent (31 October 2002) but 'shit the bed' its worth posting about

From wiki

"The match was part of a four-team round robin playoff to determine the national championship. The league crown went to Adema after Stade Olymique L'Emyrne were held to a 2-2 draw by DSA in their penultimate match, during which the referee awarded a late and disputed penalty.

The resulting draw meant that Stade Olymique L'Emyrne were knocked out of the title race. With the championship already decided, Stade Olymique L'Emyrne decided to protest; according to some sources, there was an argument between the Stade Olymique L'Emyrne coach and the referee himself.

Stade Olymique L'Emyrne deliberately scored 149 own goals, with spectators saying that after each kick-off the ball was kicked into their own goal, the opposition players standing and looking bemused. It was reported that spectators descended on the ticket booths to demand a refund.

Following the match, the Fédération Malagasy de Football suspended the Stade Olymique L'Emyrne coach, Zaka Be, for three years, and four of the team's players – defender Mamisoa Razafindrakoto, the captain of the Madagascar national football team the "Scorpions", Stade Olymique L'Emyrne captain Manitranirina Andrianiaina, and players Nicolas Rakotoarimanana and goalkeeper Dominique Rakotonandrasana – were suspended until the end of the season and banned from visiting stadiums for the same period.

All the other players, from both teams, received a warning and a threat of more serious action should they commit further offences. The referee was not punished."

Makes me wonder if they had Dojo & Denislon playing for them.
