Story here. That’s “soccer” to my fellow Americans.
After six fruitless years of defeat after defeat, East Timor’s national team finally managed a 2-2 tie against Cambodia last week. Those were the first two points it ever even scored!
“‘It was the first game we didn’t lose — we’re all very proud,’ said long-serving, long-suffering coach Pedro Almeida, a motorcycle mechanic in the country’s sleepy capital Dili.”
So you Man City supporters, when you hang your head in well-deserved shame, just think of the East Timorese team and cheer up.
