However, and for its defense, it should be clarified that the national team of American Samoa did not have 19 players, who had problems with his passport. As if that were not enough, the reinforcements of the Sub 20 team could not play since they had school exams.

The match figure was Archie Thompson who scored 13 goals. The first goal was scored after 10 minutes of play and throughout the game, American Samoa only had a clear goal option. Despite being the winner, Australia was not happy with the victory since they came from winning 22-0 against Tonga, which forced the problem that they could not continue playing at such a low level.

Thanks to this episode, there was the introduction of a preliminary round in the qualifying group of the World Cup in the Oceania area, and helped Australia obtain a change to the Asian Football Confederation in 2006, according to Dream Team FC .

As Ecuavisa explains, the team, in 2016, only had 12 players, of which one knew how to serve as goalkeeper.

According to the coach, Diego Culqui, the reason was that the goalkeeper preferred to go on a spree and in this way, Culqui had no choice but to "put the central defender and send him to the goal, then we were without defense and without a goalkeeper and then they gave us a party. They are mistakes that one becomes aware of for another match so they won't repeat”, in statements to the same media.

On the other hand, ten of the eleven players were able to score a goal, with the exception of the goalkeeper. In the first half, 24 goals were made and in the second 20. The star of the match was striker Ronny Medina with 18 goals.
