Faroe Islands Men's National Soccer Team News


June 13, 2015 - Hallur Hansson & Brandur Olsen score in win over Greece
"Greece's dismal campaign continued as they crashed to a second shock loss to the Faroe Islands, 2-1. Hallur Hansson opened the scoring for the hosts after 32 minutes in Torshavn before Brandur Olsen doubled the advantage 20 minutes from time. Greece did hit the woodwork through Kostas Mitroglou and Nikos Karelis, who also had a shot cleared off the line, and pulled one back late on through Sokratis Papastathopoulos, but it was not enough for the 2004 champions." - RTE

November 14, 2014 - Joan Edmundsson scores in win over Greece
"Joan Edmundsson's goal gave Faroe Islands a shock win over Greece and increased the pressure on coach Claudio Ranieri. The nation ranked 187 in the world moved ahead of Greece, who slipped to bottom of Euro 2016 qualifying Group F with one point from four matches. The only goal came in the 61st minute as Edmundsson steered in Brandur Olsen's mis-hit shot. Panagiotis Kone went closest for Greece when he missed from six yards. The Faroes created the better chances, Olsen hitting the post with a first-half free-kick before Frodi Benjaminsen's header was brilliantly saved by Orestis Karnezis." - BBC
