|Aug-09-18|| ||diagonal: Former Faroese football midfielder, and one of the Faroe Islands' best chess players. |
Torkil Nielsen claimed his place in world football history for his goal in the 1992 European Championship Qualifying Campaign during the match Faroe Islands vs. Austria on 12 September 1990, a shock 1-0 defeat of Austria (which also was the Faroe Islands' first competitive match).
Three days after that sensational and embarrassing 1–0 defeat against the Faroe Islands in the first qualifying game of UEFA Euro 1992, the coach of the Austrian team, Josef Hickersberger, decided to quit / had to resign as national coach.
