World Football Hero of the Week: San Marino's Goal Hero Alessandro Della Valle

Will Tidey@willtideySenior Manager, GlobalSeptember 13, 2013

San Marino, perennial World Cup whipping boys that they are, hadn't scored a competitive goal in five years.

In their last outing, they were beaten 9-0 by Ukraine. But for this selection of part-timers, there is no such thing as giving up. 

Imagine the joy that came with their equaliser against Poland.
