World Cup Qualifier: San Marino 0-2 Moldova

16th October 2012
World Cup Qualifier
Stadio Olimpico, Serravalle

San Marino 0-2 Moldova


Ah the agony!  With 20 minutes remaining, San Marino were well and truly in this one with the scores still at 0-0.  A famous draw was so close you could almost touch it.

But the final twenty minutes told a familiar tale.  As with the England match last week it took a penalty to break the deadlock, on this occasion substitute Serghei Dadu scored within a minute of coming on the pitch.

A deflated San Marino conceded a second a few minutes later after some poor defending to Alexandru Epureanu’s header and that was that.  There was still time for San Marino to come agonisingly close to registering a goal, but Fabio Vitaioli was unable to convert, so still no goals to celebrate.

But what a close performance this was, and a real encouragement despite the ovbious disappointment at coming so close to terrific point.
