Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. On April 11, 2001, the Australian and American Samoa national football teams faced each other in a qualifying match for the 2002 FIFA World Cup. The match was played at the International Sports Stadium in Coffs Harbour, Australia. Australia set a world record for the largest victory in an international football match, winning the game 31–0. Australia's Archie Thompson also broke the record for most goals scored by a player in an international match by scoring 13 goals. In addition, David Zdrilic, the scorer of eight goals in the match, achieved the second highest number of goals in an international match since World War I. The outcome of the match led to debates about the format of qualification tournaments, with the Australian coach and Thompson feeling that preliminary rounds should be introduced to avoid such unbalanced matches, views shared by the international footballing body FIFA. It eventually led to an introduction of a preliminary round in the Oceanian zone qualification for the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
