Archie Thompson 13 goal scorer

The match was played at the International Sports Stadium in Coffs Harbor. Australia’s Archie Thompson, Thompson, who plies his trade for Marconi Stallions in the Australia National League, broke the record for most goals ever scored by an individual player in an international match by scoring 13 goals in the match which helped the ‘Socceroos’ create a new world record. His team mate David Zdrilic also scored 8 goals to be the second highest number of goals in any international match.

Frank Farina’s side, amazingly, took eight minutes before they scored their first, when Con Boutsianis cross-cum-shot crept in.

Thompson scored his first three minutes later and from then on the shots and goals rained in on poor Samoan ‘keeper Nicky Salapu.

The match was played by:

Australia: Michael Petkovic, Kevin Muscat, Craig Moore, Tony Popovic, Tony Vidmar, Simon Colosimo, Aurelio Vidmar, Steve Horvat, Con Boutsianis, Archie Thompson, David Zdrilic.

American Samoa: Nicky Salapu, Mexico Lisi Leututu, Soe Falimaua, Levaula Fatu, Sulifou Faaloua, Travis Pita Sinapati, Baby Mulipola, Pati Feagiai, Ben Falaniko, Tiaoali’l Savea, Young Im Min.
