What is the world’s worst soccer team?

The micronation of San Marino is not very good at soccer.

The Wall Street Journal asked me to compile a list of the worst teams in World Cup qualifying: “Soccer is often considered the world’s game, but that doesn’t mean the whole world is very good at it. For every Brazil, a team that has played in every World Cup and has won it five times, there are a dozen Luxembourgs, teams that compete year in and year out, but never come close. Using data from FIFA, we’ve analyzed World Cup qualifying since the race for Italia ’90 began, in 1988, to see which nations have produced the most futile efforts.” Read the rest on WSJ.
