Football can provide a number of memorable stories for fans all around the world. There are stories that can make people fall in love with the game, whilst there are some that can only further enhance the passion and the love that they already have.
Indeed, somethings just do not seem entirely possible to bet on even when using betting24.se, as they just seem to be incredibly unbelievable.
Here are just some of those stories to have emerged:
When Arsenal played Dynamo Moscow in a friendly back in 1945, heavy fog was always going to wreak havoc with the fixture at White Hart Lane, however the referee did not think there would be any.
Despite players asking for the game to be suspended, the match went ahead and the Russians took full advantage of the weather conditions. Moscow allegedly made substitutions but did not actually take the player in question off. Instead, they decided to just add an extra player on the pitch. It is alleged they had 15 players on the pitch at one time.
Arsenal used the same trick, though, as they had a player return despite having been sent off. In addition, the ‘keeper ended up out cold as he ran into the goalpost.
21-20 in a penalty shootout does not sound a realistic score and perhaps one that can only be experienced on a videogame such as FIFA or Football Manager.
However, back in 2009/10 in Argentina, Fourth Division sides Juventud Alianza and General Paz Juniors managed to make that a reality in their qualifying match for the Apertura for the Ronda Final.
The match had finished 3-3, so goals were likely to be expected from the penalty spot, however 21-20 in favour of Juventud was not expected.
The shootout only ended when Alianza’s Ruiz had his spot-kick saved by the goalkeeper; all 40 prior to that kick had been scored.
There are two teams that contest the Isles of Scilly Football League each season. Garrison Gunners and the Woolpack Wanderers. They play each other every week in a league format to determine who wins the championship for that season.
The teams play each other 17 times over the course of a season, whilst they also play each other in Cup tournaments and for a Charity Shield that starts the season off.
The only time they do not play against each other? When they play each other in the Cup. Surely they get sick of each other?
