My favourite Tonga anecdote: they held the proud title of worst defeat in international football after losing 22-0 to Australia in qualification for the 2002 WC. This honour would stand for only two days, as the Aussies were about to take on American Samoa. I could see that happening, I remember a few years back I tried doing a Serie A preview and stopped 15 teams in because it got so mind numbingly boring That got stale after like 2 teams. It basically turned into a competition who could talk the most about sexual intercourses with sheep. Texas Tongan Polynesian tribal T-Shirt I remember the newly promoted teams or the bottom half teams getting the classic zinger “No one’s ever heard of you” Which to be fair, American’s wouldn’t have. More a statement of fact.

They’re back in the Gold Cup for the second time (last app. was 2009). They’re doing something right at the moment. I was upset that they had lost 1-3 to Haiti in the first leg, but gotta say I’m happy they’re back in the Gold Cup after a 3-0 win. They pulled a very impressive 0-2 loss vs Mexico in ’09. I enjoy reading about the shit teams. If they get anywhere near below-mediocre and no longer considered God awful, then it might not be as good As someone who keeps a lazy eye on Oceania, Tonga really are the worst team in the world. Texas Tongan Polynesian tribal T-Shirt They play for fun though. Well, they ain’t playing to win, that’s for sure. But like you say, rugby is king there. In 2013, Lotoha’apai won the title in 4 games (in a 6 game season) and they just didn’t bother playing the rest because they couldn’t be fucked.

Maybe they should just field their rugby team in their soccer games. Those guys might be able to get better results due to their physical advantage. Yep, persuade some of the foreign-based Tongans to declare for Tonga for soccer. A central back three of Taulupe Faletau (110kg), Mako Vunipola (130kg) and Billy Vunipola (126kg) might not be any good, but they’d be fucking terrifying to play against.
While Malakai Fekitoa might actually have some footballing skills to show off! That was an under 23 team, Texas Tongan Polynesian tribal T-Shirt and to be fair, most of them hadn’t even left the island before then so never played against anyone other than themselves, and even then they don’t play a full 11-a-side game regularly.
