Football Matches with Record Number of Goals Scored

April 6, 2020 Posted in Uncategorized by No Comments

Football is all about scoring goals! If you can’t put the ball past the goalkeeper in the net, then your place is not on a football pitch. It is as simple as that. 

History does remember memorable performances that include last-minute winners and exciting equalizers that pushed games into overtime. But people also fondly remember blowout games where there were a plethora of goals to be seen. 

And if you think that you can successfully predict the next one, you can freely apply for a Betway Registration

Without further ado, here are the games that we have in mind. 

Arbroath vs Bon Accord (1885)

The 13th iteration of the 1885/86 Scottish Cup saw the experienced Arbroath face off against a semi-professional and newly formed Bon Accord. Arboarth entered the game as a substantial favorite but no one would have predicted what would transpire next. Although there were some assumptions as the visiting Bon Accord side showed up without a team kit to play in. 

The first half ended with Arboath going up by 15-0 while the second one saw 21 more goals in Bon Accord’s net, for the final result of 36-0 in favor of the home team. 

Australia vs American Samoa (2001)

During the Oceania 2002 World Cup qualifying stage, Australia set the record for the highest international game victory.

Now, the Australian is by no means a force in the world of football, but in the region of Australia, they are the most dominant side there is (with only New Zealand being able to somewhat match their strength). 

American Samoa is not a strong team in Oceania, in fact, they are one of the weakest teams in the world. At the time thy haven’t even recorded an official FIFA victory. So going down by 31-0 is not such a surprise. 

What is more interesting is the fact that Australia beat their own record as they defeated Tonga by 22-0 only two days prior. Meaning that they scored 53 goals in a span of just three days. 

AS Adema vs SO Emyrne (2002)

The game that took place in the finals of the Madagascan Cup between bitter rivals Adema and Emyrne is the game that broke a 117-year long record in goals scored. And boy did it break the bank. The game was finished with a score of 149-0 in favor of Adema.

But the victory comes with controversy as Adema’s players never even touched the ball for the entire game. What transpired was Emyrne’s players kicking the ball into their own net as a sign of protest. Emyrne lost the title against Adema in the prior game due to a suspicious penalty call. This was their way of venting frustration.
