Alessandro Della Valle (San Marino) scores on header from the center of the box to the bottom right corner assisted by Matteo Vitaioli with a cross. This video can also be called, “Alessandro Della Valle never has to buy another drink in his life” because this is only San Marino’s second goal in a World Cup Qualification.

When you compare SM to other sides, like a Poland, the republic’s tiny population, the smallest of any UEFA country at about 32,000 obviously is going to hinder their able to field a team that can compete with the UEFA powerhouses. They haven’t had a whole bunch of success, especially against Poland.

In the qualification tournament for the 2010 World Cup, they lost all ten of their matches, including 10 in a defeat to Poland, which became Poland’s highest scoring victory of all time!

This one must’ve felt good, and you can see it on the players faces.
