Instead of standing idly on the touchlines because the likes of FIFA do not consider them a country, what length will national teams from places as diverse as Lapland, Gibraltar, Tibet and Zanzibar go to, to get a game? From a dentist willing to risk his career to play for Greenland, where players are literally dying to play football, to a US soccer Dad who only wanted to get a game for his teenage son in the South Pacific, but ended up forming a national team, these are the Outcasts! rejected by FIFA, yet in love with the Beautiful Game. Intrigued by why anyone would want to play for such no-hoper nations, Steve Menary went in search of the teams that FIFA refuse to recognise and found a host of incredible stories outside the touchline of international football.
