The Faroe Islands national football team recorded an impressive win as they beat Liechtenstein 3-0 in a friendly match in Marbella in Southern Spain today.

Kaj Leo í Bartalsstovu put the Faroes 1-0 up after 11 minutes, and Brandur Olsen made it 2-0 in the 80th minute. Sonni Ragnar Nattestad nodded in the third four minutes later.

This is only the second time the Faroes have won by a three-goal margin on foreign soil since becoming a member of Uefa in 1990.

The only other time the Faroes have recorded a three-goal win on foreign soil was in March 2014 when they beat Gibraltar 4-1.

The Faroe Islands have now beaten Liechtenstein in all of their five head to head clashes so far, all of which have come as friendly matchups.

The sides last met in 2016, where we’ve seen a five-goal thriller and a 3-2 win for Faroe Islands.

On Wednesday Liechtenstein lost 1-0 to Andorra in a friendly match while the Faroe Islands drew 1-1 with Latvia less than 24 hours later.

Faroese skipper Atli Gregersen put the Faroes up 1-0 after 27 minutes while Latvian striker Vladislavs Fjodorovs equalized in the 69th minute.

The friendly game against Latvia was also played in Marbella in Southern Spain.
