Or so one of the papers put it. All I can say is OMFG! 2-1. Two-one!? First of all, we only managed to score two goals! and second of all we let San Marino score. San Ma-fucking-rino? There aren’t enough exclamation marks in the world to convey my shock. I mean, we all expected at least 5 goals, didn’t we?
