European minnows San Marino don’t score very often. So when they do it is a big reason to celebrate or commiserate, depending on which side you are following.
So when Mattia Stefanelli pounced to level the scores at 1-1 just after half-time the reaction of the studio pundits and presenters at a Norwegian television station was priceless.
The reaction from the official San Marino Twitter account was equally as memorable, but not hard to understand given it was their first away goal in World Cup qualifying in 15 years.

As shocked as the Norwegian commentators were, they need not have been too worried as Norway went on to win the game 4-1 thanks to three late goals.
But it was good while it lasted.
