VIDEO: Faroe Islands Players Go Bonkers in Changing Room After Beating Greece

Faroe Islands produced another incredible result in their football history after beating Greece 2-1 on Saturday.

The minnows already had a win over the Greeks to their name going into the weekend’s Euro 2016 qualifier.

Lars Olsen’s men beat Greece 1-0 in Piraeus last November thanks to Joan Edmundsson’s historic goal.

That defeat saw Claudio Ranieri sacked as Greek manager after failing to win a game.

But new coach Sergio Markarian could find himself under pressure following this loss which leaves his side bottom of their qualifying group and with virtually no chance of sealing a place in France next summer.

As expected, Faroe Islands were delighted with the result – and quite rightly went bonkers in the home changing room afterwards:

Hallur Hanson opened the scoring for Faroe Islands before Brandur Olsen hit their second. Sokratis Papastathopoulos’ equaliser came too late for Greece to salvage a point.

It leaves Faroes fourth in the group, five points behind Hungary in third and with an outside chance of sealing a play-off spot for Euro 2016.
