Strangest pre-season game ever? Marlow FC take on Kuwait


This could be the most unexpected encounter of a pre-season that has already seen Accrington Stanley beat Marseille. Kuwait, the world's 156th best national team, took on eighth tier Marlow FC in a friendly at Bisham Abbey on Friday. And the Buckinghamshire club, who play in the Isthmian League South Central Division, managed a very creditable 3-2 defeat against a side that reached the World Cup in 1982.


Kuwait, the tiny oil-rich state on the Persian Gulf, are in England for a training camp before the West Asian Championship in Iraq later this month.

"Maybe Marlow will be able to enter the next World Cup," joked club chairman Terry Staines, who said the game came "out of the blue". He told BBC Sport:
"We didn't have anywhere near our best team out, while they had a large squad. We went 1-0 down after a few minutes and I was a bit worried. We got it back to 2-1 at half-time, they then scored their third and we got a penalty. The last 15-20 minutes we were trying to get another. We are only two weeks into training, it was a very nice occasion for the club and served a purpose in giving us good match practice."
