Faroese players celebrating their first goal
|Event||UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying|
|Date||13 June 2015|
|Referee||Tom Harald Hagen (Norway)|
On 13 June 2015, the Faroe Islands played Greece in a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying match at Tórsvøllur, Tórshavn. They won 2–1, in what was their second victory over Greece in the qualifying campaign. The game is considered by many Greeks to be one of their most humiliating defeats in international football, while many Faroese people consider the match to be one of their greatest upsets.
This were the last points in the Faroese campaign. Greece got an away draw with Romania in September and finally won its first match in the last matchday, beating Hungary 4–3 at home, but it wasn't enough to avoid the bottom place. Both teams finished with six points, with the Faroes having the advantage on head-to-head record.
