San Marino claimed their first clean sheet away from home

It took six years and 36 games but European football’s whipping boys San Marino have finally managed to claim a point.

And the goalless Nations League draw away to fellow minnows Liechtenstein – both countries have populations of fewer than 40,000 people – also saw them record their first clean sheet away from home in their 30-year history.

You have to go back to 2014 for their previous point, a 1-1 draw against Estonia, while their most recent draw away from home in a competitive game was in 2001 against Latvia.

Their record now reads won: 1, drawn: 4, lost: 162.

Mighty Liechtenstein’s record, meanwhile, is won: 17, drawn: 26, lost: 158

The Sammarinese famously scored the opening goal in a 7-1 thrashing by England as Graham Taylor’s side failed to qualify for the 1994 World Cup.
