UFWC Review of the Year 2007

Share post on:

2007 saw 12 UFWC title matches, 5 title changes and 30 goals. Here’s a quick round-up:

The year began with Georgia holding the UFWC title. They defeated Turkey 1-0 in February, but then lost the title to Scotland in March, via a 2-1 defeat. All-time champions Scotland only held the current title for four days, losing 2-0 to Italy, who became undisputed Official and Unofficial Football World Champions. Italy beat the Faroe Islands 2-1 and Lithuania 2-0 in June, but then lost 3-1 to Hungary in August.

In September Hungary defeated Bosnia-Herzegovinia 1-0 before losing 3-0 to Turkey. It was Turkey’s first ever UFWC title win. Turkey held off Moldova in a 1-1 draw in October, but then lost 1-0 to Greece, who became the joint Official European and Unofficial World Football Champions. In November Greece thrashed Malta 5-0 and then beat Hungary 2-1. 2007 ended with Greece holding the Unofficial Football World Championships title.

These are the 12 title matches:

21/11/07 HUNGARY 1-2 GREECE EQ Budapest

17/11/07 GREECE 5-0 MALTA EQ Athens

17/10/07 TURKEY 0-1 GREECE EQ Istanbul
