Ask any football fan if they remember a good drubbing, they will come up with atleast one such story, usually in a domestic cup competition. After witnessing record scores of 10-0 and 20-0 in the 1st round of Estonia Cup, a further score of 36-0 at full-time was added to the competition’s history. FC Infonet annihilated Virtsu Jalgpalliklubi 36-0 in the Estonia Cup. Infonet hails from Tallinn, the country capital, while Virtsu, who play in the 5th tier of Estonian football, is a town with a population of less than 500. Trevor Elhi, the Estonia u-18 defender who plays for Infonet, found the back of the net 10 times.
A club is supposed to be embarrassed following a defeat by such a gigantic margin, but Virtsu have welcomed their new-found attention. Their club officials have claimed that the number of visits on the club website has been continuously rising at a rapid pace ever since. Infonet’s victory margin has matched the British record – when Arbroath beat Bon Accord in the 1885 Scottish Cup. Despite the scoreline, 36-0 seems passé compared to AS Adema’s 149-0 win over Stade Olympique L’Emyrne in 2002. In a bizarre twist, this score was achieved via 149 own-goals, as the players of Olympique were protesting against a refereeing decision, which saw their manager being sent off.
