If you enjoyed the unexpected success of the likes of Costa Rica and Algeria, you might be the type of person who enjoys rooting for the underdog. In English football, there are few better examples of a David constantly overcoming Goliath than AFC Wimbledon.
Under their original Wimbledon FC name, the tiny southwest London side took just nine years to go from being a non-league team to a top-flight one in 1986. Then, two years later, they did the truly unthinkable, beating European behemoths Liverpool in the FA Cup Final.
Despite a minuscule budget and a relatively small fanbase, the Dons enjoyed nine seasons in the Premier League before a decline that eventually saw them sold to a consortium in Milton Keynes. They were renamed and given new club colours.
This extremely controversial move failed to kill Wimbledon's spirit, however, as fans started their own club from the very bottom of the football pyramid. Like its former iteration, AFC Wimbledon only took nine years to join the Football League.
These days the fan-owned club play in League Two. Next month, they will face the franchised Milton Keynes team in the League Cup. Might we suggest you follow the underdog in that one?
