ESPN thought the US state of Georgia were giving Spain a game
The USA national team would struggle to match Spain at the minute. Hell, any team in the world would struggle to match Spain at the minute.
So imagine the surprise of broadcaster ESPN to find that the southern state of Georgia were giving the World and European champions a run for their money.
They proudly displayed the stars and stripes next to Georgia’s name, even after Spain took a 1-0 lead.
Alas, it wasn’t the home state of Ray Charles and Hulk Hogan taking on Xavi and co but the former Soviet state, some 6,000 miles away.
Tbilisi mistake to make.
