World's Worst Soccer Team Finally Wins A Game


Good morning, I'm Linda Wertheimer. The world's worst soccer team finally won a game. In 17 years of international play, American Samoa has scored just a dozen goals, compared to the 229 they've allowed. But they scored two this week, to beat Tonga 2-1 in a World Cup qualifying match.

The American Samoans hope their win will raise their ranking. They currently sit at 204th in the world.
