Soccer: Australia 31 - American Samoa 0 (2001)
Do you believe in miracles? What about pure, unadulterated ass-kickery? In a World Cup qualifier so lopsided that it earned its own Wikipedia page, the Aussies put up the largest winning margin in the history of international play, with Archie Thompson breaking a record by scoring 13 goals. There was some fine print, however, as passport issues limited American Samoa to just one regular, forcing a bunch of amateurs (some as young as 15) into action. The bloodbath was so bloodbathy that FIFA would add a whole new preliminary round to the Cup in 2006.
