If you were thinking of high-scoring national teams in football, Australia will probably never cross your mind till you read this post.

In 2001, in a game played at the International Sports Stadium in Coffs Harbor, New South Wales, the Aussies thrashed American Samoa 31-0.

Forward Archie Thompson was the star of the game scoring 13 times. David Zdrilic netted eight times while midfielder Con Boutsianis completed a hat-trick.

The match set the record for the highest scoring margin for an international fixture. However, it is far behind AS Adema’s 149-0 win over S.O. l’Emyrne in a Madagascar league game in 2002.
