San Marino, the world's lowest ranked international soccer team, secured its first point in over six years thanks to a drab goalless draw with fellow minnows Liechtenstein in the UEFA Nations League on Tuesday.

The result also saw San Marino, a team made up mostly of amateurs with other jobs, record its first clean sheet away from home in its entire 30-year history.

The last time San Marino did not lose a game was in 2014, when it drew 1-1 against Estonia.

Its international record now stands at an astonishing 162 defeats, four draws, and just one win, which came against Liechtenstein in a friendly match in 2004.

San Marino, a microstatecompletely enclosed by Italy with a population of just over 34,000, is ranked 210th in the world by FIFA, just below Anguilla and the British Virgin Islands.
