Faroe Islands v Hungary
Anyone who claims there’s no easy games in international football have clearly never seen the Faroe Islands play.
The European minnows are total whipping boys, and on Tuesday night they’ll almost certainly lose yet another match as they take on Hungary at home in a World Cup qualifier.
While the result may be a foregone conclusion, the Magyars have been placed under pressure regarding the scoreline ahead of the game.
A Game of Thrones punishment awaits
Sounding like a character out of Jane Austen novel, the brilliantly named chairman of Hungarian side Honved – George F. Hemingway – has written a pre-game blog previewing the Faroe Islands clash.
Dredging up memories of Cersei’s walk of shame in Game of Thrones, Hemingway has issued to following suggestion should Hungary failed to batter the minnows:
Bernd Storck and the players should come back to Hungary wearing “shame” signs around their necks if they don’t win by 3 or 4 goals.
Hungary beat Faroe Islands 2-1 and 1-0 in their last two meetings. Faroes have only lost by 3 goals once in their last 14 games
