Top 10 highest scores in Football
1. AS Adema – Stade Olympique de l’Emyrne: 149-0 (2002)
A goal every 36 seconds. This extreme defeat in 2002 in Madagascar can be explained by the fact that the Stade Olympique players decided to score against their own side to express their dissatisfaction with the refereeing process. A few weeks earlier, a referee had broken their dream of qualifying for the African Champions League. The result: a record defeat, and many suspensions for the leaders and players.
2. Vanuatu – Micronesia: 46-0 (2015)
After already losing against Tahiti (30-0) and against Fidji (38-0), Micronesia was humiliated once more against Vanuatu during the Pacific Games. 114 goals in just 3 games making them the worst team of History. Fortunately, Micronesia isn’t affiliated to FIFA, so the score is not official.
3. Pelileo SC – Indi Native: 44-1 (2016)
Pelileo SC and Indi Native, two professional teams, play in Ecuadorian D2. All the field players have found their way to the nets. Forward Ronny Medida alone scored 18 goals.
